Gordie Howe In Person

Gordie Howe...Mr. Hockey, was doing an appearance at a local hearing clinic.  Technically, the event was supposed to be only for patients of the clinic.  I actually have a hearing disability, so I figured that I would give it a shot.  They were actually allowing some of the general public come in as long as it was not busy with clients.  Gordie was super nice.  He tried to figure out when the photo was taken as it was one that he had never seen before.  He likes to crack jokes and interacts very well with everyone.  Their only request was that anything signed, had to be personalized.  I had no problem with this at all.  He took his time signing the photo and it turned out awesome!  Gordie is a class act.  Its great to add an autographed photo of one of the best players to ever play the game, to my collection.
