Autograph signing & shoe shopping

by Tom Gilbert / Edmonton Oilers
Just got back from the pre-game meal and thought I'd take a few minutes to update you on the past week or so. I guess the big story was Sunday's autograph signing. It's actually a pretty neat deal to see all the people waiting in line for autographs. It's just too bad that we can't do it for longer. I know there's a lot of people who couldn't get to everybody's table but it's tough to get everybody through.

I was at a table with Hemsky so needless to say our line was pretty intense. There were more people there for him than for me, but that wasn't a big surprise. But it was great to meet the fans and everyone there was so supportive so on behalf of the team I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who showed up. Some of you even mentioned that you like my blog so that's a bonus.

Other than that I don't have anything else to report. I shouldn't admit this but I did a bit of shopping when we were in San Jose and bought five pairs of shoes. In my defense they're not really fancy shoes and I had two of them shipped back to my house in Minnesota because they didn't have my size in, so I really only bought three pairs. I wasn't even planning on buying anything but we didn't have a skate that morning so we just walked to the mall to get our legs moving. Shoes are my kryptonite.

I haven't seen any movies recently, so I don't have any updates on that front. I'm in the middle of watching Rescue Me so that takes up a lot of my spare time.

That's it for today. Talk to you next week.
