Do You Sign Autographs at a Hit-and-Run? (Dwight Gooden, of course)

Retired Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden was always getting into trouble. I'd list the things he did, but it would be pages and pages long.

I'll give you the latest, though.

The 45-year-old was driving under the influence of drugs with his 5-year-old child in the car.

And what time do you think it was? Well, it was 9:00 a.m., the time when most of us our doing the liquid drugs they serve up at Starbucks.

He was not only on drugs, but…

Late Night Autographs -- Letterman, Conan, Aniston

I was catching up on the TMZs I had recorded on my DVR, and I saw that Jennifer Aniston was signing lots and lots of autographs before going into Lettermans show. This has become a place where lots of people now go to wait for the celebs.

I was in New York and saw hundreds waiting to meet Will Smith (he only signed a couple before going in).

It's smart of them to sign, because the cameras are watching. Aniston was signing photos, DVDs, and any item put in front…

Corey Haim Autographs

I was interviewed on a radio station last night talking about the death of Corey Haim. The subject went into childhood actors, and I mentioned the VH1 list of 100 Greatest Childhood Stars, and Corey was #26. The list is a compilation of a lot of trainwrecks -- either dead or drug problems, etc.

Anyway, I just now thought about the time the cast of Lost Boys (about 6 months ago), came to town to sign autographs. It wasn't Corey Feldman and Keifer Sutherland, or even Jason…

Helen Mirren Rips an Autographed Photo Up and Guess What Sold for $4,500

I couldn't believe when I was switching channels, and caught the end of The O'Reily Factor, hearing that he sold an autographed poster from him and Glenn Beck, for $4,500. Wow. Seriously, that's probably worth 45 cents. And, I'm not just saying that because I don't agree with their politics.

On TMZ, the show to watch for autograph thingies...the gorgeous Helen Mirren, who was nominated for The Last Station (her performance was great, the movie just average). She was signing…

Muhammid Ali & Tim Tebow...Who Charges More?

Living in San Diego, I hear more Padres news than I care to. But out in Peoria, Arizona for the pre-season, the Padres were greeted by boxing legend Muhammad Ali. Tony Gwynn Jr, who has met some big names, seemed thrilled, saying "It's the first time I've ever been star-struck."

Only a few players got autographs of the living legend.

Across the U.S. in Jacksonville, Florida, Tim Tebow, who created a bit of controversy with his Super Bowl commercial, isn't even expected to go…

Oscars and Autographs

Well, the Oscars were given out. And, very few autographs at the big event.

At least, that's what is usually the case.

It was nice to see George Clooney running up and down the chain-link fence and shaking hands and signing a few autographs (he had a Sharpie in his hand).

There were a few other autograph related stories regarding the Oscars, but they completely slip my mind now. Can anyone else add anything?

David Letterman Signs an Autograph That Will be Gone Soon

I'm not a big fan of Leno. Well, he is great about signing autographs. I just don't think he's got great comedic instincts.

On his first day back behind the Tonight Show desk (and a funny bit he did in which they look for a new desk by going door to door), he actually had a funny show.

Jamie Fox opened a bottle of champage and handed it to a woman in the audience.

Over on Letterman, his friend Bill Murray game out with crutches. He joked about a…

Cop Out -- The Memorabilia Movie Out Now!

Okay, okay. It's really a parody of the buddy-cop movies of the 80s. And, it's a nice pairing to have the very funny Tracy Morgan, and Bruce Willis, the man who's played a cop in over 100 movies (or so it seems).

It was okay. It had enough laughs that I didn't mind seeing it. It could've been so much better, though.

Anyway, the cool thing is that to pay for his daughters wedding, Willis is going to sell a 1952 Topps baseball card of Brooklyn Dodger Andy Pofko.…
