This week's story is from Melissa who was lucky enough to meet Chris Chelios recently!! THANKS, Melissa, for being kind enough to write up your story and send pictures along!!
Hello there, fellow hockey lovers!! : ) Stephanie asked me to give you a little recap of meeting Chris Chelios! Those of you, who know me, know how big of a Red Wings fan I am—afterall, I’m from Michigan!
I received an alert on my facebook saying Chris Chelios would be signing autographs at a Verizon Wireless store a few towns from where I live. It worked out perfectly because I play soccer on Thursday nights in that same town so all I needed to do was show up a bit early, meet him, and then go play soccer!! None of my teammates who I usually carpool with were excited about meeting him, so I decided to go by myself! Sometimes doing things on your own is best!
I asked him if we could get our picture taken and he said of course!—I was only shaking a little bit, but I’m pretty sure he couldn’t tell! I was totally playing it cool!! Haha! I asked Chris about his golf game because I’m a big golfer! He said that he doesn’t play golf and doesn’t like it! I have never met a hockey player who does not play golf! Anyway, I thanked him for his autograph and the picture and he smiled and said, “You’re welcome!” And it was a genuine smile! He seems like a really nice guy!
