Troy Aikman DOES NOT sign footballs

So, my girlfriend was in a store getting a new cell phone. I'm not even sure I should call it a cell phone. It's an "i" something or other. It's basically a computer, camera, and about 20 other things all of which are attached to the cell phone.



Anyone else remember when phones were stuck on a wall at the house, and you had to dial phone numbers and wait for the round thing to come all the way around before dialing the next number? It made you hate phone numbers with 8 and 9 in them.… Continue

Tiger Woods Autographed Jacket

So, in Torrey Pines here in San Diego, the big golf tournament is attracting lots of attention. Mostly because, it's the first time Tiger Woods hasn't played in it. And also, Phil Mickelson, considered the best golfer behind Tiger, is a local San Diego boy.



There have been pictures of him signing hats, shirts, photos, and golf balls.



But this story caught my eye.



They were going to auction off a windbreaker autographed by Tiger Woods. The starting bid was… Continue

Steven Tyler in Home Depot !!!

The few autograph things of the day I found interesting.



The Lakers were visiting President Obama in the White House. This is one of the perks you get for winning a sports championship.



The craziest photo was seeing one of the dopey Kardashian girls getting to shake hands with the Prez. Oh, the perks of being a reality show idiot, but marrying a Laker (poor Lamar Odom).



One of the usual photos had the President holding a Lakers jersey with his name on the back.… Continue

Jimmy Fallon tells an AUTOGRAPH joke

I'm not a big fan of Fallon, but he has a few things that work. One of his bits is when a joke bombs (was anyone better than Carson? he'd hit the microphone to make sure it was on, or he'd look to the side with that weird facial expression...)

Well, Fallon takes the cue card with the joke on it, and gives it to an audience member. I have to assume that some of the audience members that have received these, get them autographed later. I know I'd try to do that.



Anyway, his joke… Continue

Harrison Ford talks AUTOGRAPHS with David Letterman

All the late night fighting has really gotten interesting. Although, I find I'm watching Conan and missing some of Letterman because of it (after all, Conan only has another show to go before it's all over).



Well, I tuned in to Letterman during a commercial on The Tonight Show, and Dave was telling Harrison Ford how nice it was to sign autographs for the fans waiting to get into the show. Ford had an uncomfortable look on his face (but really, when doesn't he?) He then said, after a… Continue

Crazy Heart and Jay Leno AUTOGRAPH stuff

Jeff Bridges will definitely get the Oscar nomination for playing the drunken country singer Bad Blake in Crazy Heart. He's flat out amazing. It'll be his 5th nomination, and I'm hoping he wins for this.



Anyway, his character is relegated to playing dive bars and bowling alleys, while his young protege (played by Colin Farell, who my girlfriend thought looked like a country version of George Michaels), is playing the huge stadiums.



When they meet up for the first time in a… Continue

Gerard Butler Lawsuit

I don't know the details of this story. I just heard it mentioned the other day on the news.



I guess I could Google and find out easily enough. But ya know what? I didn't want to do that. Not because I'm lazy (well, okay...that's part of it). The reason is, I'm afraid I'll be so angry after reading the details.



You see, he settled with one of those annoying paparazzi photographers. You know, like the one that Lindsay Lohen just hit with her car, and will probably also get… Continue

Paintings

I just heard that a man with a stolen Monet has been caught. Good ol' fingerprints.



He cut it from a frame a museum 10 years ago, and replaced it with a painting done on cardboard. That sounds so absolutely bizarre, I'd just love to see the replacement. Did it look similar to the Monet? Or was it just a big yellow smiley face or something?



This reminds me of a story I heard in LA a week ago, and all autograph collectors that have purchased bogus signatures can… Continue

Expensive Auction Items

A friend sent me a link to this today. I assumed the high end auction items would be airplanes, rare cars, and maybe a Picasso or two. It was a lot more diverse. And, since they are "collectables", thought I'd slap the link on here.

Enjoy.
