Default Umpire accepts fan?s generous offer of glasses

Umpire Mark Wegner accepted a Chicago Cubs fan?s generous offer of glasses today, happily accepting the man?s spectacles during the fifth inning.
?The guy was screaming at me the whole game: ?Hey, ump, do you want my glasses??? said Wegner. ?At first, I had no intention of taking them, as my vision is 20-20. But I didn?t want to hurt the guy?s feelings. Everyone in baseball needs to be mindful of the fans. Plus, I thought they were pretty cool frames. I?ll look kind of cool and bohemian if I wear them.?
Wegner said he is very much enjoying the frames, and hopes fans will offer him more things in the future.
?I?ve heard fans yell to me before: ?Hey, ump, here?s a dollar. Why don?t you go buy a clue??? said Wegner. ?I think I might start accepting these dollars. Might be a nice little extra way to make money. Plus, there?s no paper trail, so I wouldn?t really have to declare it on my taxes.?

Very cool. This and the guy calling the Yankee/Red Sox game with the wild strike out motions. Good work, ump.
