If this post takes you any longer than three minutes to read, I suggest you immediately head to your local education facility and enroll in a remedial reading course. Why, you ask? That's simple. We got only a dozen autographs, including eight on Colin's team sheet, during a work-induced, abbreviated hour of hounding the Calgary Flames this afternoon.
Those three cards shown above, all signed by Eric Nystrom? That's it for blue Sharpies on cardboard.
This puck? Well, Jay Bouwmeester was nice enough to sign for the Colin's Pucks project. After that, nothing else. Those three pucks I had for Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff will be used elsewhere.
I'd heard the Flames were much more accommodating before the team's morning skate. Too bad, I suppose, I was at the office. Game time, however, was a different story. Most of the team paraded to the bus only minutes before it left the Marriott Waterside for a quarter-mile ride to the St. Pete Times Forum.
Oh, well, we can't win them all. And, as always, 11 more than one is better than none.
