We like Washington Wizards big man Kevin Seraphin around these parts, what with him once having a pet snake named Snakey, his remote-control helicopter, being a part of our YOLO All-Stars and hilarious answers on the Wizards’ version of the $20,000 pyramid.
Seraphin, like his fellow NBA players, is often asked for his autograph and as Dan Steinberg of the DC Sports Blog reports, Seraphin will autograph just about anything you give him, including money, iPhones and (hopefully one day) pets:
Noted quirky person and professional basketball player Kevin Seraphin was recently asked about some of the more unusual things he has autographed in his NBA career.
“The coolest thing for sure is my contract,” he said.
That was a joke.
“The worst is a $100 bill,” Seraphin went on. “I’m like, ‘Dude, you don’t want to use it?’
“Also, the screen on an iPhone,” Seraphin said. “I’m like, ‘But what you gonna do?’ They just said ‘Well I won’t use it anymore.’ I don’t know what you’re gonna do with it, but yeah, that was the worst. I was like wow. But the $100 bill was [impressive?]. He said ‘I’m going to put it on the wall.’ I said ‘Well okay.’ ”
That seemed to end the interview. But then Seraphin thought of something else.
“I’ll sign anything,” he said. “Bring your dogs; I’ll sign your dogs too.”
Ricky Bobby, you may have met your match.
