Have you ever wondered about how professional athletes and sports figures go about signing their names to a piece of paper (or other places, like a body part)? Don't lie: I'm sure you absolutely have.â†µ
Okay, maybe you haven't thought about it for that long, but you have thought about it for a couple seconds. Assuming this is true, you'll definitely get a kick out of Joe Theismann telling Redskins.com blogger Matt Terl his method for properly signing his name to things.
"If people are asking for your autograph, you want them to be able to know who you are. You don't want them to look at some scribble and -- when someone says, 'who is that?' -- they go, 'I don't know.' So what young autograph[-seeking] kids do now is when they go up to a player and can't read their signature, they print the name right underneath it."â†µ
There are even pictures of Theismann signing his autograph for Terl here. Check it out.â†µ
(There's a punchline in here, I know it. Come on, think of it, Mike. Need. Comedic. Inspiration. Now. Ugh, it's not happening).â†µ
