It was our second day in The Big City of Toronto. And I would have thought that after the experiences I had endured previously, I'd be treated to some relaxing time on the soft green pillow in our hotel room.
How wrong I was.
Of course, I was once again dragged to another event. This time to something called a "Wine and Cheese Reception" at the Hockey Hall of Fame, to eat, drink and meet some hockey player named Luc Robitaille.
Before even entering the building though, I was NOT impressed being plunked down on a cold bronze statue at the entrance to the Hall.
No, I am NOT going to say "cheese"... just take the stupid photo before I slide off into the prickly bushes, ifyoudon'tmind.
Can we get inside now that my butt is sufficiently frozen?
Gee, thanks much.
Ah, now THIS is better... Somewhere warm and important-looking to "hang out"... literally.
Now if only I could reach to bend that mic down... I want to make a speech proposing that old Stanley Cup behind me be re-named the "Sam-ley Cup". Yup, that has a nice ring to it. I mean, Lord Stanley has had a good run, but *I* think "Sam-ley" sounds better. Don'tcha?
No? Darnit. This little kitty, she was so close to fame.
I spent the rest of the evening wandering around looking at jerseys, awards and various hockey paraphernalia until I found myself perched on this huge net thing.
Oh look. A big stick. Hmmm... this looks interesting. I wonder what happens nex....
Whaddya mean, you're going to "shoot" that hard round black rubber thing at me?
Are you freakin' crazy????
Ahahahaha!!!! Mr. Dryden, at twice his normal size has come to my rescue....
Yes, I am there... look closely and you'll find I'm bravely positioned on his right leg pad. Just TRY to get a puck past us now. Bwaahahahaha....
Finally! Food and drinks are served, including itty-bitty burgers just my size!!!! Yum... de-licious!!
Now get me my own teenie tiny wine glass; we're taxiing back to the hotel tonight, right?
Nom nom nom....
I STILL think "The Samley Cup" is a better name...
