Meeting (Famous) People

Like Joe Posnanski, I am not very good at small talk. Some people have a talent of getting someone to indicate what interests them, and when the listener also knows something about one of those subjects, asks an intelligent question. Like Sean the sales guy at our company, who figures out what sport and team the guy was into, and then always has a lead in question whenever they may meet. (How ’bout them ‘Boys? or Can the Sox win it again?) And then the ice is broken and the listener is engaged and volunteers information about “business” more readily. But not me; unless I know you pretty well, getting to that common subject just can take forever.

Even if you are not a sports buff, this is a good read at SI.com. While you may not understand the sports references, you should understand the small talk and lifestyle points.
