Default Meeting Fast Willie

If anyone was at South Hills Villiage today, Fast Willie was there signing autographs. I didn't get one, as they were 40 bucks a pop, but i did get to chat with him over the line for a few minutes. I asked him what he thought about all the rumors about Cowher retiring, and he said he hoped not, but he really had no idea. By coincidence I was wearing my Parker jersey today, so I think that was why he noticed me.

yeah I find it hard to believe that people are willing to pay that much for an autograph...put it towards a trip to Latrobe for training camp...you can get the autograph yourself (altho it's not 100% guaranteed I guess) plus you'll get to watch the guys practice

$40 isn't bad at all. He's not a star player anywhere other than Pittsburgh.

Check out Eli's prices http://www.bcsports.com/2400/4637/1501690/1

Also, just after the Super Bowl Jerome's ticket prices were over $200 per autograph.
