    Today, I spent some time celebrating Black History Month in Chicago, and was able to meet and get two autographs from the only 5-time Heavyweight Champion, Evander Holyfield, who was in town to promote his new barbecue sauce. Unfortunately, he would only sign the barbecue sauce bottles, (1 for every 6 bottles bought), although he signed some photos for the first couple of people in line, but that was quickly stopped. There was a ton of media, including all the local news stations, interviews, general commotion, etc. And he was 45 minutes late. To make matters worse from an autograph perspective, there was also a special surprise appearance by Mike Tyson, who came in for 5 minutes to get footage for his upcoming reality show, promote his Broadway show, and run out the back door, signing nothing.

    At least I have two bottles of hot barbecue sauce.
