Thanks, Mikey Mo!

Any hounding adventure with the Dallas Stars would be seen as woefully incomplete if it didn't include an autograph (or two) from Mike Modano.

After getting the future Hall of Famer to sign the Team USA team jersey, as well as this Dallas Stars puck, I'm comfortable with the fruits of our labor. He also signed Colin's team sheet, meaning, at day's end, we had another three signatures.

Veteran hounds should notice a difference in his autograph, too. Rather than the nearly letter-perfect signature that we've come to expect, these were the likely result of drawing an expected large crowd.

A word of caution, though. Be prepared to walk -- backwards, even -- to get Modano's autograph. He drew a moving crowd before the Stars morning skate.

Still, though, don't you believe a player of Modano's stature is certainly deserving of a little extra effort? We do.
