When an autograph means more than just a scribble: Four-year wait ends with meet-and-greet with one fan’s favorite ballplayer

As Twins fans know, 33 was the number worn for a decade by first baseman Justin Morneau, who was selected that year to his fourth straight All Star game, his first as a starter. It was my hope to get the jersey autographed and to eventually frame it and hang it in my distending man cave.

Selfies become the autographs of the digital age

Clicking selfies became an urban cultural phenomenon in India during 2014, leaving autographs outdated.

Whether it was about flaunting a new hairstyle, telling the world about a brush with a celebrity, a party with friends or visit to a landmark place, clicking selfies was the choice of millions.

Rihanna Stages The Best Meet And Greet Ever At The Eiffel Tower

Yesterday Rihanna was filming something (a new video? A campaign film perhaps?) at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, wearing a silver boiler suit, crystal choker, black desert boots and baby blue gloves. She was then mobbed by over 100 fans armed with their phones.

But Rihanna didn’t have a barrier of bodyguards between her and the screaming navy, she rolled up the sleeves of her jumpsuit, sprinted towards the French Navy and dived right in. She sat on a man’s shoulders and fan-surfed, letting everyone take pictures of her. The best meet and greet EVER?
