I always get a kick out of stories where one celebrity asks another for an autograph. The last blog I wrote dealt with Phil Collins and his bad experience asking Sir Paul McCartney for a signature. This latest story, worked out a lot better for the person requesting an autograph.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was caught on camera asking his rival -- Patriots QB Tom Brady for one of his game worn jerseys to put on his wall.
The clip was shown on “Inside the NFL”, in which Big Ben had a pregame conversation with the QB. He’s recovering from knee surgery and was in street clothes at the time.
Now, I would’ve been that smart ass that asked Brady to sign a football. Then I’d hand him a Sharpie and a flat football with no air in it.
This is fairly common among soccer players in other countries, but the first time I heard of it in America was when Michael Jordan and then Kobe Bryant, were retiring from their NBA careers.
