If you want a roy williams the reciever, not the bum @** safety/linebacker i might be able to hook you up

this topic reminded me of going down to Joe Robbie Stadium around '96 because the Astros were in town to play the Marlins.

I was INTENT on getting Jeff Bagwell's autograph (which he did. he signed one of my insert cards
)

but i distinctly remember, above all the people screaming "BAGWELL! MR BAGWELL! MR BIGGIO! PLEASE!" there was this frail little kid.

he goes (in the highest pitch voice ive ever heard, male or female) "excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"

I think Danny Darwin threw him a bone and gave him an autograph, but who cares about Danny Darwin anyways?

if you're older than 15-16 (really if you're older than 10) you should be ashamed of yourself. it's so ridiculous, who cares that you got a famousperson to sign something anyway? I knew a 20 year old kid that got a basketball player to sign his gym towel cause saw him on a treadmill. Leave people alone.

I bet the same people that hassle athletes for autographs are the ones who stop what they're doing and take pictures of ferraris and lamborghinis on theroad. !#* are you going to do with that picture, it literally means nothing?
