New York Giants’ receiver Odell Beckham Jr. showed up more than four hours late to an autograph session Tuesday in Scranton, PA, according to news reports, causing tempers to flare.
Fans in a long line told local media they didn’t find out until well into the evening why Beckham was late or whether he was even coming. That’s when they were shown a text message from the player’s agent indicating he was having trouble rousing Beckham from the couch, where he’d been feeling ill.
The Times-Leader reported two other Giants players did show up on time, but that didn’t assuage fans who paid $80 to meet the player who made the year’s most talked about catch.
The Scranton Times-Tribune also covered the signing, offering a few details of its own, some reaction, photos and video.
