    He was doing a free autograph signing at a car dealership in Menominee Falls today. I thought the place would be swamped, but there was only about 60 or 70 people there. I got him to sign my "Lambeau Field" mini helmet, and my wife's black Packer hat. I also had a guy take of photo of me and Grant........I hope it turns out. My camera is kind of tricky, so i hope it's a good shot.
    When i get the film developed i'll try to post pictures.

    He didn't talk too much, but when i asked him if he could personalize my wife's hat he said "Sure! No problem!" So he wrote "To LJ, Go Pack Go! Ryan Grant #25".
    Then i asked if i could get my picture taken with him, and he again said "No problem!" I told him "My friends are gonna be SO jealous!" and that got a laugh out of him. He did take time to talk to the young kids, which i thought was sweet.
    I was just shocked that there were not more people there. I got there about a half hour before he was scheduled to sign, and i was #15 in line. Of course he was about 20 minutes late. I guess there was an accident on the freeway.
    When he signs at events, they usually charge about $40 for his autograph. So "free" was a GREAT deal.
    I only wish i had seen the add in the newspaper earlier. It was in Friday's sports section, but i didn't read that part of the paper till saturday morning. I could have been better prepared. But i got it, and thats what counts.

    Ryan Grant is famous for his bladder control. He's gone 3 days without going pee pee before.

    By the way, Cheesey, I hope you do post those pics. I like Grant. I'm predicting 1200+ yards and 10+ TDs on the ground. I'd predict even more, but I have a feeling we will have a multi-pronged rushing attack in '08.
