Greetings from Seoul, South Korea!

I See Dead People('s Agents)...

HeadstoneI always wondered what went on in the building across the street.  I heard it was a celebrity agency but I never bothered confirming the rumor.  People come and people go, most in nice, expensive sports cars.

Maybe I'm the last one to figure it out, but it turns out Wiley's neighbor across the street isn't just a celebrity agency...they are "the premier company...representing families and estates of deceased celebrities."  The names include many of the bobbleheads I have in my office: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jackie Robinson, Vince Lombardi and many more.

The agency's name is CMG Worldwide and their main office is right across the street from Wiley's office here in Indianapolis.  Who'd a thunk it?  Some days I'm probably stuck in traffic behind Lou Gehrig's agent!

Ok, I can't believe I finally have come across someone who has bobbleheads in his office.

Mine? Vince Lombardi, Bo Schembechler, Woody Hayes, Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.

Am I a member of an undergound culture?

Hi Sean. I guess we're both part of the underground culture. Yep, I've got about 15 or so bobbleheads in my office, including two on my desk: Lou Gehrig and Roberto Clemente. The rest are an assortment of other Pirates (Willie Stargell), Yankees (Roger Clemens), Tony Dungy, Joe Tiller (Purdue football coach) and several others. I consider Gehrig and Clemente to be my personal advisers...
