first off i’d like to start off by saying chris is the sweetest person on this planet (that’s not an exaggeration and also should not be a surprise). she literally goes out of her way to interact with fans, and that is such a special thing. so thank you, pressi.
anyway so basically i went down through one of the suites to field level where everyone was waiting for the players (all of them were also very nice) and like press was on the opposite side of the field but i waited right by the “tunnel” exit and she’s walking towards the exit and i call her name and she looks at me and makes direct eye contact and inside i’m like
and she’s smiling so!! fucking!!! big!! and her eyes are twinkling and i died
and she beelines right to me, meanwhile everybody and their mother is calling her name but she ignores all of them because they don’t have the key ingredient (a #23 jersey) and holy fuck her smile and then she says “hi, how are you?” and I die again and say it’s always great to see her in California and she’s like “i love playing here!” and then she says thank you so much for coming etc. etc. and does that eye contact thing where you realize you’re staring into the soul of an angel and she said “there you go” and handed me my jersey and smiled more and that was that. did i ask for a picture no because all i could process in that moment was her smile and her eyes so yeah that’s my story Christen Press is a literal angel
