I think why I don't feel silly is what happened back in late 1960. Back then I felt silly about asking about autographs and blew an opportunity of getting Laurance Owen's autograph when my Grandmother introduced me to her. I still kick my self around over that one.

Also autographed photo of Kevin van der Perren.
Brian Boitano, Katarina Witt, Caryn Kadavy, Gary Beacom, Yvonne Gomez, and a few others I can't think of right now, on the Brian & Katarina Skating Program (1990). Also have Kurt Browning on a World Team Program. I have met Brian a few times, been at rinkside interviews with him, Joe Sabovcik, Nancy Kerrigan, Roz Sumners (also have her autograph) and and more......

Anniemg, yes, you should be able to edit your posts. If everything is working right, you should see two buttons at the bottom of your post, on the right (you have to be logged in): "edit" and "quote." For other peoples' posts you will just see "quote."
"Edit" will allow you to change the text or to delete the whole post. Please PM me if you do not see this option.
I have a few things autographed by Brian Boitano, courtesy of some wonderful friends who acquired them for me. I've never met BB myself.
Hopefully I remember all of them
Kurt Browning - I have my picture with him, he's the only skater I have a picture with. LOL
Melissa Gregory (twice) & Denis Petukhov (I still have no idea how I got hers twice and his only once, oh well)
Mike Weiss (twice!!!)
Bourne & Kraatz
Brassuer & Eisler
Roca & Sur
I know I've forgotten a few....
I got a nice little 'thank you' note from Andrei Griazev after I sent him some copies of pictures of him from Skate Canada last year....a very pleasant surprise some months after the fact. Otherwise, none.
Since, for some reason, it won't let me edit my post, I'll just say here, I'm not much of an autograph or lobby chick person.
Kasey - I'm not either... most of my autographs come from thank you notes, or a contest I won where I got a signed CSOI program lol
I have Tara Lipinski's. She signed her book for me, at one of her SOI shows.
I have quite a few autographs:
Brian Orser x2 (one in his autobiography and one on my 1st pair of skates)
Wilson and McCall (also on my first pair of skates)
Tracy Wilson-on a picture of me, Rob McCall, Tracy Wilson and Brian Orser
Emanuel Sandhu (multiple times)
.....and the list goes on
I also have pictures with:
Tracy Wilson, Rob McCall and Brian Orser
Emanuel Sandhu (again multiple times)
.......and others that I can't think of right now
Plus I have probably thousands of pictures of skaters from various competitions I've attended.
I have a photo with Michelle and an autographed book.
a photo with Paul Wylie
and autographed books by Scott Hamilton, Oksana Baiul (2), Ekaterina Gordeeva, Brian Boitano, Kristi Yamaguchi, Yogi Berra (Yankees) and Kerri Strug (gymnastics).
