WING TIPS:

Facebook sensation Colin signs one-day contract with Kalamazoo Wings

Colin, the Richland boy with disabilities whose secret Facebook page went viral, had 2.1 million page "likes" prior to Tuesday night, but now, the 11 year old can say he's part of a professional hockey team as well.
Colin and his family were surprised by players, coaches and representatives of the Kalamazoo Wings at Jaspare's Pizza Tuesday where the team presented him with a one-day contract that will allow him to join the team for their home game at Wings Stadium this Sunday.
K-Wings broadcaster and public relations director Mike Mudogno said the contract, which is the first one-day deal the team has ever offered, will give Colin the opportunity to get his own jersey, drop the game puck and even sit on the bench with the players, among other activities.
Colin's mother, Jennifer, who asked that her last name not be used, first started a Facebook page for her son after she asked him what he wanted to do for his 11th birthday, which was on March 9. Colin, a 5th grader at Gull Lake Community Schools, said he didn't want a party because he didn't have any friends, his mother has said.
Since then, the page and story have taken off and even given the family a chance to be on "Good Morning America." Jennifer said the family has received 78,000 pieces of mail for Colin as of last Monday and gifts are still being sent to two P.O. boxes the family has purchased.
K-Wings Head Coach Nick Bootland, who was joined by players Elgin Reid, Eric Kattelus and Sam Ftorek, said the team is also looking forward to hosting Colin this weekend.
"Obviously there are things that are much bigger than the game and if we can put a smile on a young guy's face that deals with a lot of adversity, we're excited about that opportunity," Bootland said.
Modugno said that as part of Colin's deal, he will also be named one of the stars of the game. The team usually names only three stars, but Colin will be honored as the fourth following Sunday's game.
