Follow the adventures of the Goalie Stick as it travels North America collecting NHL Goalie 'Graphs.

Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky [Bob] – Meet the Team Event [Season Ticket Holders]


Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei [Bob] Bobrovsky

The easiest goalie ‘graphs to get were from Ilya and Bob since they’re here in Philly [Before Bob had to leave for Columbus].  The Flyers have a ‘Meet the Team’ Event for season ticket holders every year.  Bob and Ilya were in the same group so we were able to get both of their ‘graphs at the same time.  One of the staff members escorted us up to the club level so my dad could access the autograph with his wheelchair.  Wayne Simmonds [not a goalie] was in the same group — he signed pucks for me and my Dad].  I wanted to have Bob and Ilya sign in the pretty gold oil paint marker.  I thought since they’re my hometown goalies, they’re ‘graphs would look cool in gold.  I’d try to get the other ‘graphs in the goalies’ team color sharpie markers.  [Except teams with yellow colors since that won’t show up well.]

Ilya came over to where my dad and I were with a black sharpie all ready in his hand.  I tried to give him my gold paint pen and asked him to sign with that, but he said black would look better on the white stick, then signed with the sharpie he’d been holding.  Bob didn’t mind signing with the pretty gold paint pen.   Since players were only signing autographs at that time I couldn’t get a picture with them signing thegoaliestick but I did get photos with Bob and Ilya [and Kimmo, ‘Roo, Reader & Rinny] a few months later at the Flyers Carnival.]

Here’s pics with Bob & Ilya from the Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Charity Carnival :

[BTW: I still think the gold color looks way cooler then the black sharpie but WHATever].
