Why? Because I am cool enough to rate an invite to the Fan Appreciation Night at MCI Center for the Washington Caps courtesy of my hockey pal, Kim! :)
We get to meet the players (and I’ve promised Snappa an Olie Kolzig autograph if I can snag it for which he will owe me HUGELY!) and hang out on the ice and other cool stuff like that. I can’t find any info on the site about it so I’m taking Kim’s word that it’s awesome (and I believe she is most trustworthy).
Kim sez: “This a meet the player event! The whole team should be there signing autographs etc.. The first time I went I met Olie in the hall, I almost faintedJ The players are usually in groups of two at a table, in the boxes, on the Zam, spread out and you line up to meet/autograph/picture the players. Ted Leonsis, Joe Bendinatti (sp?) and Craig Laughlin are usually walking around too. We can tour the locker room too. It’s way kool!”
So, expect some pics of me and at the very least Slapshot tomorrow (or the next day) up on the site.
Training the “Danish delight” on ACATS and having control issues. As Wayne Dyer says “Learn to detach from the result” but boy, that is hard as shit. But I must do it if I want a day off, right?
