How I met 3 Ottawa Senators

VermetteLast night I took 2 of my nieces to meet Antoine Vermette, Chris Kelly and Chris Phillips from the Ottawa Senators. All 3 players were at a local car dealership signing autographs. It was the first time I ever met any Sens players and it was pretty cool. We got there a little late, but luckily that meant there wasn’t much of a lineup. We only had to wait 15 minutes or so in line behind 15-20 groups of people. Katrina, my youngest niece in attendance, was very excited to finally meet some of the players she’s been watching on the ice.

The signing session was quick. The girls got their jerseys signed, and each player graciously took a picture with them. Vermette came across as being a very friendly guy, Kelly was very quiet, almost shy, and Phillips is very imposing but a nice guy. I was so busy making sure the girls had a good time that I almost forgot to get my own jersey signed each time. I think by the look on their faces that they appreciated that their uncle took them to meet some Sens players. Hopefully this will be something that they’ll remember for some time to come.
