Earlier in the season, me and my buddy Joe (joeshockeyautos.blogspot.com)went down to HSBC Arena not only to get Sabres autographs, but some Blackhawks autos as well. Because of Joe's grandpa, we got to go in the locker room area to get the autographs and watch the practice. It couldn't have started out any better because the first person we see coming into the arena with tough guy Rob Ray, was Buffalo born Patrick Kane. He is a nice guy, but boy he thought he was hot s***. He was walking tall with his Stanley Cup ring, which covered up his entire finger. When Joe asked him he knew his cousin, he said he didn't know who she was, which was pretty funny. This was a great start to a very successful day.
