Autographs: Mia & Nomar

Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra were signing autographs this afternoon at Sport Chalet in Torrance. It was held to let the fans know about their upcoming charity event.

I've posted the info of the event already. {linked here}

The couple were scheduled to sign autographs for about an hour. I'm sure there was over 100 fans inside the store. I wouldn't be surprised if it was around 200.

My Brother and myself thought the event was great. The employees were nice. Not that many rules. They were saying only 1 autograph per athlete but you could of got an extra if you wanted too. Garciaparra didn't mind.

Got a 8 x 10 photo of Mia Hamm signed and a Garciaparra Bobblehead signed. Both were nice and were willing to pose pictures with the fans as you can see above. My Bobblehead looking at us.

Thanks Mia and Nomar! Another big thanks for those that said hi. I have no idea how people recognize me :)

I found a kiddies book about women soccer at a dollar book store and she bought cuz it had Mia Hamm in it. We totally would've gone ... except we probably wouldn't have gotten there till one. I need to start checking your blog on an hourly basis!
