    Swarm had their home opener tonight. Graphed pre and post game. Only got 1 auto pre game. It was Greg Downing on a card from the 2010 UD MLL set. He was super nice, thanked me for the support and stuff that all those guys do. Haha It was cool. Post game I whipped out the good stuff since it's a little easier then. By "good stuff" I mean my 8X10s and customs I had Rockiesfan make. All the players loved my stuff, they just thought it was all cool. Haha

    I even got the owner to sign my team logo sheet and he thought the photos were cool and I had a really cool good sized chat with him. I also had a really cool chat with assistant captain Jeff Gilbert.

    He just loved my 8X10 of him. He thanked me a couple times for showing him that and having him sign it (lacrosse, the only sport where the athletes thank you) and stuff. Then I told him about where I get the photos from and stuff and how I was already gonna need to order more. And he said, not to worry, they'd get different people up at the post game interviews/autograph sessions. Then I mentioned we needed to get (my favorite player) David Earl up there after a game, cause I have a game worn jersey I bought from the team this off season and I want to get signed and framed. He told me he'd tried to get him up there next game and if I don't see David up there, to find him and he'd go down and get him and bring him up for me. So I'm definitely gonna hold him to that. Haha

    Anyways here's everything I got:
    Transition player, Greg Downing 1/1 UD 2010 MLL card
    Forward, Jay Card 3/3 custom, 8X10 and team logo sheet
    Defenseman, Dan Ball 2/2 8X10 and team logo sheet
    Captain, Andrew Suitor 1/1 custom
    Forward, Shayne Jackson 1/1 custom
    Transition player, Kiel Matisz 3/3 custom and 2 8x10s (One of the 4 1st round picks, marker wasn't great, but it still looks good)
    Assistant captain Jeff Gilbert, 2/2 8X10 and team logo sheet
    Team owner, Andy Arlotta 1/1 team logo sheet


    Team logo sheet/8X10


    Jeff Gilbert 8X10


    Kiel Matisz 8x10 (MLL team)


    4 1st round draft picks from this year, I forgot to shake the Gold before having Matisz sign it.


    Customs made by Rockiesfan. Jay Card (bottom left), Kiel Matisz (bottom right), Shayne Jackson (top left) and Andrew Suitor (top right).


    Greg Downing 2010 UD MLL card.


    Dan Ball 8X10


    Jay Card 8X10

    Next up will probably be the "Skate with the Gophers" event the Gophers hockey team is having next Saturday (the 2nd), unless something pops up mid week.

    Thanks! Yeah, I'm pumped to probably finally get him at the next game...

    Here are some stats for my graphing year so far:
    Through 26 days- 2.1 autographs per day

    Thanks! I've really been killing it so far this year! Thanks again for the customs, I love them. All the players think they are pretty cool, too, as you know. Haha It'll be cool to get that other half of the set soon, too.

    Today was an amazing day. I went to the "Annual" (1st time I've ever heard about it) Skate with the Gophers event. And the Wolves/Pelicans (Yeah, I'm all for the name change. As someone who lived in FL as a kid, I loved pelicans and feeding them haha) game. I was expecting to make a decent haul of around 30 at the Gophers hockey event (#1 team in the Nation!) and was hoping for about 13 or so more at the Wolves game, to get me to 100 on the year. I ended up getting 61 at the Gophers event. So I'll cover that in my 1st post.

    The event itself was fun, although all I did was get autographs. haha But they had autographs in the concourse and 9 20 minute sessions of 100 people skating on the ice with some players, coaches (Lucia was not in attendance, I was bummed), Goldy Gopher and the hockey cheerleaders (Who were in fact hotter than the bball/football cheerleaders I've seen at U of M games).

    They also had it where you could take pics with the cheerleaders, pics with our awesome national championship trophies, a bball booth (I was bummed no players were at it), concessions and a hockey skills challenge. The one downside is they had 6 autograph lines with each have 5 or so players in it, BUT they also had select players on the ice at times, so you could go through a line and not get 1 or 2 players, cause they were skating, meaning if you wanted them bad enough, you had to go back through when they returned. I made it work, though. Here's the haul:

    Former Player/current asst. coach Grant Potulny 1/1 AHL Card (He was super nice, asked if I wanted it personalized, I said sure)
    Nick Bjugstad 3/3 Puck, helmet pic, team poster (My favorite, because he will be a stud for my Panthers in a few years. He was nice, very sociable which most of the players weren't)
    Zach Budish 4/4 puck, 8X10, helmet pic, team poster
    Kyle Rau 4/4 puck, 8X10, helmet pic, team poster
    Erik Haula 4/4 8X10, helmet pic, 2 posters

    Sweet haul! Definitely a better event for you than the Gopher Pro-Alumni game that we originally planned

    Went straight from the gopher event to the Wolves game. I was a little unprepared, because I arrived at 3:45 and players were already arriving, plus I was in a rush and I forgot some stuff in the car. Outside the only Wolves player I got was Andrei Kirelinko on 2 programs from a previous game. He was signing as I arrived and was nice enough to wait while I got my sh!t together. Haha

    Then we (me and clryan5) went over to the Pelicans bus. I got Ryan Anderson on a card. Then inside I did the Pelicans, too. Got Ryan Anderson on another card, Xavier Henry on a card and the main reason I graphed them, Anthony Davis on an 8X10. I was kind of on cruise control at the game, with forgetting some stuff in the car, players coming early, being focused on getting Davis, not have eaten all day (at that point) and being thirsty as hell, too.

    Pics:


    AK47 Programs

    Anderson/Henry cards


    Davis 8X10

    Next up is a Swarm game on Friday night. Hoping to knock down more 8X10s, customs and my GU David Earl jersey.

    Thanks! Yeah, it def was. I'm not big on baseball and I wouldn't have had much for most guys. Also, I'm trying to get more into hockey, seeing that it looks like I'm gonna be stuck in "The State of Hockey" for awhile. Haha
