So this caps fan walks into a bar...

So last night I was at a local watering hole(Caddies on Cordell in Bethesda) minding my own business and getting smoked in Golden Tee when I happened to turn around to the booth behind me.  The gentleman sitting in that booth was talking about the Olympics(hockey specifically) with the waitress when I realized, wait a minute, I know that guy!  That's Mike Green!  Almost at that precise moment, the waitress asked Greenie if he played hockey.  Unable to contain my fanboy geekout, I interjected that "Yeah he kinda plays hockey and he's kinda good at it, too."  Then I said to him: "Dude you got robbed and you should be in Vancouver right now, but since you're here, would you mind if I got your autograph?"  He laughed and obliged my humble request.  I got a picture out of it too, said thanks and let him go back to his dinner.

It really is true what they say, hockey players are the coolest, most approachable athletes that there are.  I've met other athletes(Redskins mostly) in non-team function situations and they weren't nearly as laid back as Mike was.  It was a nice unexpected surprise/Caps jolt to my hockey starved system.  Just thought I'd share.
