Justin Tucker

Last night Dave & I went to the grand opening of the new Ashley Homestore for the main thing for us the appearance and signing by the GOAT Justin Tucker.  The signing was scheduled from 6-8 PM. we arrived 5:20 and would get Justin at 7PM he arrived about 10 minutes but was no big deal as we safely got him not sure about the people at the back of the line or if he stayed to get everyone.  This was a 1 autograph and picture per person/group.  I was able to get a second the people we were in line with had 3 people but only 2 of them were getting an autograph as the 3 guy was a Broncos fan! but was nice enough to get me a card signed.  All in all a good event has I looked back and had not gotten Tucker in over 3 years between the pandemic and him mainly saying only the kids on game day or not signing at all on game day.
