    Little late on this but yesterday they held an autograph session for Hopalong at "Cardboard Heroes" in City Center Mall @ 6PM. I dont think anyone knew about it because not too many people showed up at all. Matter of fact, the line was depleated by 6:20. Otherwise, he looked to be in great health and it was awesome to shake a legends hand, not to mention having an autographed football by him.
