Odd scene. Dolphins’ cornerback Vontae Davis sitting under a too-little canopy that looked like it was rented from Costco. Four people surrounded him, most of them asking him to sign U.S. currency. Sitting next to him was a Keith David lookalike (see him here http://www.imdb.com/media/rm4262239488/nm0202966) peddling unsigned 8x10s for $20….I’m not really sure what was going on because I saw people approach Vontae with unsigned items and he kindly signed them. But if you walked up and had nothing you couldn’t buy items from other people standing there, but you had to buy them from Mr. David. I told Mr. David that the situation seemed a little strange, and he responded, “Economics.”
Vontae was signing everything in black Sharpie but he gladly obliged when I asked him if he could sign in blue. I made some small talk as he signed, asking what he remembered about playing in State College, Pa., where I used to live. “Big rivalry game. That’s all I really remember,” Vontae said. I then told him that he sounded very good during yesterday’s postgame interview.
He did 1/1 and would’ve done a lot more had I not had printing problems.
