Knox autographs his own helmet

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

*Johnny Knox set down his helmet and began signing autographs after the last public practice of training camp in Bourbonnais on Thursday.

One boy, who couldn't have been more than 4-years-old, handed him a Bears helmet to sign, which Knox did with a silver marker.

The boy then put the helmet on and walked away.

Knox didn't realize until a few minutes later that he had just signed his own helmet. He had to chase the boy down to get it back.

Now that's funny. These guys are pretty much overwhelmed wherever they go to sign autographs, so it is not surprising that they lost track of their equipment from time to time.

I wonder whether the kid was trying to be nice and give him back his helmet, or some jerk parent was pushing the kid to try and get the helmet. Either way, Johnny is now a front-line Bears player, and will have to start getting used to it.

That kid has a bright future.

Neal that was me! I also got Staley the bear to give me a hug and a red baloon!
