Former Detroit Red Wing and NHL player Darren McCarty made an appearance at the Meijer store out in Allen Park, MI today. D-Mac was as cool as can be, signing multiple autographs and taking photos with whomever wanted a photo with. Got my puck signed and asked if he could inscribe "4 X Stanley Cup Champ" on it. D-Mac did one better and inscribed all 4 years that he won the Cup with the 'Wings. Also got a photo taken with him.
Attended an independent wrestling show, Metro Pro Wrestling, out at the Arc Hall in Wyandotte, MI tonight. The main draw was former WWE wrestler Carlito. Purchased a photo Carlito was selling and got that plus 4/4 of my cards signed.
Detroit Pistons' power forward Jason Maxiell made an appearance as the guest on the "Pistons Tonight" local sports talk radio show broadcasting live at the Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill in Auburn Hills tonight. Got Jason to sign my Pistons' giveaway hat from last season and my 2 trading cards. Also got a photo taken with him.
I really like that Fleer card...one of my favorite sets, and they look great signed. Any chance you'd trade that one? I feel like I remember you saying you don't trade, but it can't hurt to ask....
I'm open to trading it for any auto that I don't have yet. Let me know what you got.
Detroit Red Wings' left winger Drew Miller and goaltender Joey MacDonald made an appearance for a paid signing they were doing at the Fanatic U store out in Garden City, MI tonight. Didn't need Drew, so paid the fee and got Joey to sign my puck with the inscription of "Go Wings" on it.
Shot you a PM.

Nope, didn't try for the Lakers.

Also got a photo with him.
Immediately afterward, drove out to catch the Toronto Raptors as they departed the hotel to the game. Got the following to sign:
point guard Jose Calderon - 2/2 trading cards
power forward Ed Davis - 1/1 trading card
power forward Amir Johnson - 2/2 trading cards
assistant coach Scott Roth - 1/1 trading card
guard Leandro Barbosa - 1/1 trading card
center Aaron Gray - 1/1 trading card
small forward Linas Kleiza - 1/1 trading card
assistant coach Johnny Davis - 1/1 trading card
guard Jerryd Bayless - 1/1 trading card
Gary Forbes, DeMar DeRozan, Soloman Alabi, and head coach Dwane Casey also signed, but I didn't need them. Missed out on:
small forward James Johnson - 0/1 (didn't recognize him as I only caught a glimpse of the side of his face as he hopped into a cab)
forward/guard Rasual Butler - 0/1 (hopped into a cab without signing)
center Jamaal Magloire - 0/1 (ignored)
power forward/center Andrea Bargnani - 0/1 (ignored; pretty shocked as he's usually good for signing at least 1 item)
Point guard Anthony Carter didn't make the trip.
