Day off from school

It's not every day that a 7-year-old gets to meet the defending Stanley Cup champions. That's why we took an "educational" field trip to Tampa yesterday to not only take in the Red Wings-Lightning game, but for Colin to get the chance to meet some Detroit players.

And, as you can see, the young man was able to meet 16 players and one television play-by-play guy, who were more than willing to make his day by signing another one of his team sheets.

Among the notable signers were Nicklas Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk, Marian Hossa, Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby and Chris Osgood.

For the record, we also added to the "educational" nature of the trip by taking a streetcar ride to the Florida Aquarium, where we checked out sharks, petted cownose rays and learned about otters.
