Athletes and celebrities get asked to sign inappropriate items every day. A "sign my boobs!" here and a "make that out to my great grandma!" there is pretty much par for the course, and it's part of the lifestyle.
Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Brad Lidge got a good request recently, though. After signing a couple of baseballs, he announces his departure and starts to pull away in his luxury car.
He doesn't get far, as a fan gets him to sign his prosthetic leg. I must admit, that's a new one. Even more impressive is the fact that it's got the Phillies logo on it and all.
You've got to wonder if that guy was balancing on one leg when he asked to have that signed. Maybe he's got his real prosthesis on, but puts on the Phillies one during baseball games.
The real question mark is not about the prosthetic leg. What left me really curious is why anyone would want Lidge, a mediocre-at-best reliever whose ERA was 7.21 in 2009 and 4.60 this year, to permanently sign something that is vital to your ability to travel. I guess we'll never know.
