Who was your first?

1st I was held by Dennis Savard when I was a baby... my parents being hawks fans are very proud of that. Weird how i turned out to be a wings fan.
2nd One of the Hanson Brothers was my coach in HS for one year. He was the one that had the famous lines of "Machine took me f***in Quarter" and "I'm trying to listen to thef****** song!" He was actually really skilled, i think all 3 of those guys played in the NHL as very limited players.
3rd I see lots of people talking about meeting chelios and all that. Well I met a chelios, it was just his sister. I danced with Chelios' sister at a wedding for a couple songs. She's really cool, but looks pretty similar to Cheli, at least very greek looking.

Kyle Calder has a acreage outside of Saskatoon,and I met him at John Deere the summer after he was with the Wings when he came in to get some new belts and blades for his riding mower.I knew that he comes in there every now and then,and I had a stack of cards for him to sign under the counter but I forgot to get them signed.He's a very nice,down to earth guy and him and I talked for a good half hour.
I forgot that Babcock came down here with the cup.I met him,got him to sign my wings cup pennant,and then he grabbed my Osgood jersey and signed it too.
There's also an outdoor rink downtown here in Saskatoon.Howe and Gretzky both showed up for some reason.Gordie signed for free,and Wayne wanted money to sign autographs for kids.I was really disgusted by this.I meant I dislike the guy to begin with,but when you do something like that,it shows that you don't appreciate your fans.

The worst was Gretzky. Met him at pebble beach golf course at the pro am. I was so excited to see that he was signing autographs and when he was close to me told him how much of a hockey fan I was. He looked at me and skipped me. I got the last laugh tho cuz as soon as he passed I told him he was overrated and Yzerman was better than him ne ways.

the set up wasn't that great as he just walked into the room and everybody surrounded him and you just hoped he turned to you and got to talk to him. i waited about 10 minutes and he turned to me and he signed my wings hat and i got a picture with him, he didnt remember me from the elevator but thats ok with me.
I would still like to meet Yzerman, Zetterberg, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, and konstantinov.

It still would be nice to have that one guy. (Jordin Tootoo, wish granted)
