Adults who wear jerseys and get autographs...creepy?

Its almost that time of year again when grown men/women will start wearing jerseys every weekend and chase down 18-22 year olds for autographs. 

Any thoughts on this practice?

Personally I find it to be a little weird, I am all about wearing team colors/shirts/etc but the team jersey is a bit too much. Maybe I am just strange that I don't want to wear some other dude's number on my back.  Am I in the wrong to think if you are over 20 its unacceptable?  Same thing goes for getting autographs of college/pro players, if you are a kid then it is something cool and will be a great story/memory.  If you are an adult, its just a little creepy IMO.

For example, if I met Joe Paterno it would be a cool experience but I am not going to ask for an autograph and wait for a picture for my Facebook page.  

If it was a BSD Diva, that is another story...
