Autographed Sports Cards -- The Dak Prescott Autopen Controversy

I was listening to sports talk shows on the radio. They can be a lot of fun, but sometimes they drive you nuts. How many times can I hear people debate who is better between LeBron James and Michael Jordan? Or if the Lakers Lonzo Ball will be the next Magic Johnson, Jason Kidd, or … Todd…

Weird Thing at Autograph / Memorabilia Store

Just sitting here watching Conan O'Brien (I'll never forget the time he held up a copy of Autograph magazine to talk with Will Ferrell about a story I wrote about him).

NBA Action (and autographs) -- It's Fantastic (the Harrison Barnes edition)
