On Monday I headed out to Morongo Casino in Cabazon for their weekly Monday night football viewing party. It was my first time attending the weekly event and wasn’t sure exactly what to expect.
Former NFL Pro Bowlers David Hill and Dwight Hicks were in attendance to raffle off free prizes to fans. Some of the prizes included autographed photos and footballs. After the 49ers crushed the Redskins, my friend and I headed over to meet David Hill and Dwight Hicks. They both signed autographs and were very nice to us.

Cedric Ceballos made an appearance at the Optometry Practice of Dr. Alex Corbin Liu. The event was originally scheduled to take place on November 16, but it conflicted with another appearance by Cedric so the event was moved up one week on short notice.
Before the event started, autograph tickets were passed out to fans in line and they were notified that Cedric would only sign one item per person. When Cedric arrived a short time later he mentioned he would sign every item that fans brought. He was very kind and a true class act.
