How long did the lines take to get through? I considered going, but it was last minute for me, so held off. Seemed like a great event thoughClick banner for tradelist

Graphed the Boston Celtics at their hotel today. Got the following to sign for me as they boarded the bus to the game:
center Greg Stiemsma - 1/1 index card
guard Avery Bradley - 1/1 trading card
forward JaJuan Johnson - 1/1 index card
guard Keyon Dooling - 1/1 trading card
head coach Doc Rivers - 1/1 trading card
Missed out on the following:
guard Ray Allen - 0/1 (ignored and just hopped into a cab)
guard Marquis Daniels - 0/1 (said he can't since he had a cab to catch)
guard/forward Sasha Pavlovic - 0/1 (ignored)
guard/forward Mikael Pietrus - 0/1 (ignored)
forward Chris Wilcox - 0/1 (ignored; looks like this former Piston have crossed over to the darkside)
guard/forward Paul Pierce - 0/1 (just waved and got on the bus)
assistant coach Tyronn Lue - 0/1 (ignored)
guard Rajon Rondo - 0/1 (ignored)
radio commentator Cedric Maxwell - 0/1 (ignored)
forward/center Jermaine O'Neal - 0/1 (ignored with his headphones on)
Assistant coach Armond Hill signed, but I didn't get him. Nobody needed rookie E'twaun Moore. Brandon Bass and Kevin Garnett didn't make the trip. I can't wait for the Big 3 on this team to retire and move on, so this horrible signing team would become nothing more than a lottery team.
While waiting on the Celtics, I noticed that there were 2 tour buses parked in the front of the hotel and 2 more parked behind the hotel. Turns out those were the tour buses of Van Halen, who will be playing at the Palace tomorrow night. Saw frontman David Lee Roth exit the hotel to walk his dog and headed around the corner on the other side. An older lady there with her daughter for Van Halen, proceeded to chase David down to sign her daughter's photo and got David to sign it too. I thought about running after him too, but didn't, though I should have if I knew he was going to sign. Did get bassist, son of Eddie and nephew of Alex, Wolfgang Van Halen to sign an index card for me as he exited his tour bus to enter the hotel just as the Celtics' first bus pulled up. David Lee Roth returned from walking his dog to enter the hotel, this time with his bodyguard, and his bodyguard told everyone David just got into town and won't be signing anything right now. After the Celtics' second bus left, I didn't bother waiting for the other two members of Van Halen or for Roth to come back out and just left.

It was a great event. Average time to go through the lines for me was 20 - 30 minutes, but average time waiting in line for signing sessions was 45 minutes to an hour.

Attended the O'Reilly's Autorama car show held at Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit today. My primary target was getting WWE superstar Rey Mysterio, who was brought in as a guest to sign autographs there. Got Rey to sign my replica mask. Deena Cortese from MTV's "Jersey Shore" was also brought in as a guest to sign autographs and pose for photos, so got her to sign my 8 x 10 photo.
