Last week I found out that former Ohio State running back, Maurice Clarett would be at my school for a few lectures. For quite some time now he has been traveling the country talking to young adults and teenagers about making the right decisions, because in his earlier years he got himself into a lot of trouble.
I was just sitting and studying where I knew he would walk in so I knew I wouldn't be wasting any time, so this 'graphing opportunity was kind of a no brainer.
The public lecture was set for 3:00, and I had a meeting to go to at 3, and an exam after that so I had to get him before his lecture for any chance of success.
He came in at about 2:40, and I followed him into the theatre where he would be speaking. One or two other people followed me, and while not talkative at all, he signed my Sports Illustrated no problem. It would have been cool to talk to him, and see his lecture, but I got what I wanted signed, and went on my way to my other obligations.
This was the 16th different Sports Illustrated I have gotten signed.
