Football Picture (thanks PaVa)

as I mentioned earlier about the football I got signed in training camp in 1998 by Hines Ward, Dermonti Dawson and Jerome Bettis. Just so yinz don't think I'm full of crap, for my next trick I will attempt to post a picture on this site so that you fine folks can see it. I will write a more detailed post about my experience at LaTrobe as a 12 year old and how I was converted from a part time Packers, part time Steelers fan (Brett Favre was my homeboy back in the day) into a full fledged black and golder for LIFE once we get closer to training camp. Anywho, enough with the jibber jabber, here it is:

Now if I did this right. This should be the one of Hines Ward's signature. He wore #15 his rookie season before switching to the iconic 86 later in his career in case you are confused.

Now if I am 2 for 2, then this should the picture of the ball behind it's glass case which admittedly does not make the signatures very easy to see. Top right is Jerome Bettis. His sig is pretty sloppy and you can't really tell it's an actual name, so you'll just have to take my word for it; it was his, I watched him sign it, then promptly picked my jaw up off the floor and had to sit down for about 5 minutes. The other one is Dawson. You can tell it's his because he put his number #63 above it. It's kind of hard to see, but if you zoom in the 63 is pretty clear.

Hopefully this worked okay. Thanks to PaVa for helping me out!
