Avalanche of autographs

To be honest, snagging Colin's Colorado Avalanche jersey was an afterthought, something for him to wear as we attended the game time signing session. But after 24 players and coaches signed it Thursday, it might be one of the better decisions I've made this season.

After spending the morning loading up on cards, Colin stationed himself just outside the team's bus at game time, making sure players and coaches stopped to sign. Who was among them? I'm so glad you asked. How about Paul Stastny, Ryan Smyth, Adam Foote and Wojtek Wolski.

In fact, the only players he didn't get were Ian Laperriere, who left before we arrived, and Marek Svatos, who we didn't see at game time. And, of course, he didn't get Joe Sakic, who was back home in Colorado recovering from his unfortunate incident with a snowblower.

Still, though, we're thinking the jersey looks pretty good.
