Just got back from the meet and greet with Rocky Bleier.
Very cool man, very friendly and made small talk with everyone. Taking pictures and all that stuff (I forgot ours, and would live to regret it, I'll explain later).
40 bucks a pop for autographs, plus whatever you buy for him to sign.
I bought a mini helmet, and he signs it with a gold Sharpie as follows:
To Domenic (my youngest son's name)
Go Steelers !

SB IX X XIII XIV
That would have been good enough for me, then the kicker;
He's got all 4 of his Super Bowl rings there with him, AND IS LETTING EVERYONE PUT THE RINGS ON THEIR FINGERS !!!!!
You guys should have seen the grin on my face when I had those rings on my fingers.
Big, HUGE frickin' rings.
The kid in front of us dropped one of his rings on the cement floor.
Rocky didn't seem to be too upset with that, I'm sure they've been dropped before.
I told him that he looked about 6'5" when he caught that TD pass against the Cowboys in the Super Bowl.
