A great successes, this time IP
NHL Alumni event on Saturday night:
Marty McSorley x6 (he was awesome as I sat down with him and talked about his role in hockey and how it has changed today)
Todd Harvey x20 (he was great as usual - I gave him a bunch of cards to keep as he liked some of them)
Dan Daoust x4 (nice guy)
Bill Derlago x4 (nice man, quiet)
Dave Reid x5 (he is always terrific, very cool to talk to)
Mark Laforest x1 (he was better than usual - still not too talkative though)
Dave Hutchison x3 (he has a great sense of humour and is very nice to talk to)
Brent Gretzky x4 (supernice and looks just like Wayne)
Denis Maruk x2 (nice guy)
Joe Murphy x9 (nice guy - we spoke a bit)
Walter Gretzky x3 (super friendly)
missed Mike Pelyk and had nothing for Kevin Miehm and Sean Hill.
As always, there has to be one...
The "(*&^) award goes to Mark Napier (always grumpy). Signed 1 but refused to sign a second one (a Montreal Logo card). Oh well, I am extremely pleased with the evening.
Got some autos for Alex and Matt in here.

Today, added to my Team Canada women autos at the Brampton vs Alberta game.
as well, I got the coaches for Alberta (Tim Bothwell & Kevin Haller).
I had a wonderful chat with Haller between periods - super great to talk to - A+ to him.
Here's hoping for lots of envelopes for us this week.
