Khan finally showed up, he was about an hour late, and once he got there, all the GBP pushed him to where he needed to go with the media, training, etc. I was fortunate enough to get him while he was walking in. If I didn't get him when he first pulled up, I probably would have had to wait another hour plus, and even still it might've been tough. He was only doing one per, and even though I brought two photos, I decided not to stick around and attempt getting the second.

After the signing, I debated on walking around the auto-show, but who am I kidding? That's not really my cup of tea. I decided to head out to LA Live and grab a quick Starbucks, as I was there I realized the Nuggets were playing the Lakers and after I looked up I saw none other than Andre Iguodala. I didn't have anything on me, but Andre is one of my favorite players. I already have multiple photo-ops with Andre, so I didn't go that route, but I pulled out a dollar bill and Andre signed it for me, pretty cool!

I was hoping to get my picture with or grab an autograph from Notre Dame point guard, Skylar Diggins. After the game I went over the to other side of the arena and Diggins was getting pushed a million different directions. All these girls wanted to get their pictures with her, and one mother came and completely pushed me out of the way after I thought I was up next in line. I was kind of in shock about the amount of attention and fandom there was around Diggins, and decided it wasn't worth it. I left the area and just watched from above as she was pushed and directed many different ways by what looked to be an assistant coach. I thought it was pretty bizzare that the Notre Dame coaching staff wouldn't let Diggins handle the scene on her own, she seemed fine; however it was crazy that she got 10 times as much attention as Shabazz got. After I gave up on Diggins I went to leave the arena and saw R&B star, Common. I quick grabbed my phone and got my picture with the star.

I had heard that former Galaxy star, and one of my favorite players, Cobi Jones, would be at a Buffalo Wild Wings not too far from my house. I was excited for the event, because I figured I could have a nice dinner, meet Cobi, and watch the game. This was not the case, I got to the event about 30 minutes before the start of the game and the manager was kicking people out of the lobby saying, they were at capacity. I hung around for a few moments, not really sure what to do, as I was mildly disobeying the manager of the restaurant, Cobi Jones walked right by me, with nobody recognizing him. I thought that it was pretty strange that no one recognized him because 80% of the people there, were there for the Galaxy event. I followed Cobi into the restaurant, right by the manager. Cobi went the opposite direction of the viewing party, and when he figured out he was in the wrong place, I politely asked him if he would sign. He was incredibly nice, and signed my two bobble heads plus a card. I grabbed my items and got out of the restaurant, I am sure Cobi signed for everyone there eventually, but it probably took him a while to shuffle through the crowds, this event was a zoo, and I didn't think it would be. Thankfully, I think I recognized him first, and got my autographs out of the way. I got what I came for and I decided to find a less crowded restaurant to eat at. It all happened so quickly and I didn't have a chance to snap any pictures of Cobi.
