Tim has a section called, "Chicken Scratch" where he describes a little bit about an athlete's signature and how you can tell if it looks like "chicken scratch" or if it looks like the athlete cares about what he's signing. I collect something a little different that I like to call, "Lasso-graphs". Allow me to show you what I mean:

Take a glance at the autograph on this Stargate:Universe card. I enjoy collecting these kind of cards because this is where we get to see some serious ink loop-age and ink flying all over the place. How you would ever identify the name "Josh Blacker" from that signature is beyond me.

Here's another prime example of another prime "Lasso-graph":

Look at how she makes a big "O" followed by curves. Ona Grauer is pretty hot so we'll forgive her for her sloppy effort but that's still no excuse for poor handwriting. My nephew writes better than this and he's 6 years old for crying out loud!

Here's another stellar "Lasso-graph" to share with you:

The question I present to you is how many "Lasso-graphs" do you have in your collection?

Tim needs prayer support

I had spoken with Tim about starting a blog and he was showing me how he does his and he was going to have me guest write on here as he's in the process of making some changes. I thought I would post something up in support of him as he's my close friend and he's having a very hard time coping with the passing of his mother. Tim's mother had passed away this week and it has been a very difficult and struggling time for him and the children. Please remember to keep Tim and his family in your prayers.
