Been doing the NFL Combine as well as a few tv/singer folks and some NBA the past 5-6 days. Had a very productful time and got quite a few guys I had not gotten before. Posting the small stuff first and then the bigger items with photos at the end. Alright...was going to post pictures but camera died and out of batteries. Will post later.

Had my yearly attempt at Bill Belichek. Last year he told me to mail it to him at the stadium and he will sign it. I did send a photo and of course never got it back. This year he looked at me and said no. I told him that last year he told me to mail to him at the stadium and I sent a photo and never got it back. This angered him and he whipped around and yelled 'Bullsh.. I send everything that is sent to me back.' Thanks Bill. See ya next year.

Other interesting story was the talk from Kevin Greene about how he sees too much of the stuff he signs on the internet and tried personalizing but those still end up for sale too. He has decided to have a policy of never signing again until someone fronts him a sum of money to do a sit down signing. He informed me it creeps him out that people know where he lives so he keeps anything mailed to him.

Madden was actually friendly this time. He has always been hit or miss. I have gotten him 1 time previously on a ball out of seeing him 8-9 times. Barkley was a huge pick-up for me as he was one of my favorites as a kid and had never gotten him in person.
