Meeting Erik Johnson

Postby ProngerBlues44 » Sun Oct 11, 2009 11:52 pm

I just wanted to share a story with you all that I found amusing:

A few friends and I went to Total Hockey in Chesterfield on Friday and we met Erik Johnson. I decided to make a joke with him, so I handed him a quarter and said, "this may come in handy if you ever have to catch a cab with Patrick Kane." He laughed and said, "Dude, you gave me too much. Give me two dimes." I told him the extra .05 could be the tip.

We continued to take a picture with Johnson, and I asked him to hold the quarter up in the picture. He obliged.

As I was walking away, he asked me if I wanted the quarter back. I told him to keep it and throw it at Kane when they play against the Blackhawks, and his response was epic. "I don't know man, he might throw a golf ball at me."

I found this exceptionally funny. I thought it was so cool how he was okay with making a joke like that to a complete stranger. Just another reason why I believe that professional hockey players are truly the nicest people when comparing them with other sports figures.

Very cool story.

And yea, I don't hardly watch the NFL and NBA anymore. I love football and basketball but I just watch college. Even college is kinda bad now though, getting thuggish, quite annoying.

Francis Howell North, though now that I think about it, it might have been middle school, but definitely in the Francis Howell school district.
