My Family purchased the ticket package for the "Meet and greet a Blues player."
This was after the Hamilton game last Thursday.
I specifically asked Juan if he would mind if I take a couple of GTs for the players as gifts. He said "sure."
I also gave each player a disc golf disc and then, of course, got them to sign my Sweden pucks.
(sorry for that reference again).
There a few pics after the jump. I especially like Ty man's look at GT on the table. Enjoy.
The title of the post was kinda how it went unfortunately. I didn't mean to be rude to Tyson Strachan.
Ya see. Daughter of DanGNR was in front of me. When it was "our turn" to "meet and greet" the players, she skipped right by Tyson and went to Oshie and started chatting it up with him. I was getting my stick signed by Tyson while giving him the GT and discs while she was still with Oshie. I rushed my time with Tyson in order to "be a part" of the daughter/player interaction. I missed most of what she and Oshie talked about. Ya see, she drew a picture for Oshie and had her own stick and jersey for Oshie to sign. So we both skipped talking to Tyson to get to Oshie.
I honestly feel like an ass for "that other guy" syndrome when we were up there. Hopefully he didn't take it personally.. as it was unintentional due to the "rushing" us all through the line. I of course realized that I should have had Daughter of DanGNR behind me while going through the line.My daughter with her 2nd favorite player. (He may now be her fav. player after meeting him.)
I of course offered up a "free" copy of GT for each player.
Ty man checking it out.
I love this look he is giving after looking at it:
and of course the obligatory pic of us with the mayor.
