"It was right after my dad died, and my aunt took a few of my brothers and me to this event where Boomer — an NFL quarterback — was signing autographs to give my mom a much-needed break.
Everyone got a picture of Boomer at the beginning of the line to get signed. My aunt didn’t really want to wait, so I asked to have her picture to get it signed for my mom. Wasn’t sure if she knew who he was either, but I just wanted to do something for her because she had been in a bad place after my dad passing away.
I finally get to Boomer, said hello, and placed the two pictures of himself in front of him.
'Two?! I’m not freakin' signing two, dude. What if everyone in this line had two pictures for me to sign, huh? What makes you so special?'
He just stared at me, waiting for an answer. I was shocked and so embarrassed that I just stood there, open-mouthed, wide-eyed, and shrugged my shoulders.
'Yeah, that’s what I thought,' he said right before he scribbled his name on one of the pictures and snapped both of them back to me."
