Road Trip to Raleigh
Eating and Meeting, all Satisfying
I just finished my second bbq pulled pork sandwich of the day, and once again I am utterly satisfied.  The locker rooms were open to those with proper credentials for a period of time--so I made a beeline for the Team Staal locker room. Ovie was sitting back with his arms crossed in his cubby, while Henrik Lundqvist prepared his sticks for the weekend's festivities.

Next, I ran into a brigade of team mascots, complete with full pads, sticks and skates. Mr. Bolt of the Lightning was very friendly and even took a picture with me. (Maybe he just wanted some publicity in the blog!)
Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
