Thats pretty cool none the less.

Personally, I don't think I'd bother a professional Athlete if I was up close in public. Perhaps a comment as we were passing, like good luck tonight, or something, just so they know they were recognized, but I wouldnt want to disturb them. I'm sure they get it all the time, and enjoy being under the radar a bit when they can get away with it.

I've never met any NHL'ers while they were in the NHL though, just a whole bunch before they turned pro, like Mike Richards, Steve Mason, Steve Downie, Clarkson, Simmonds, Giroux, pretty much anyone that passed through Kitchener at one point or another over a few year period when I was working for the team.
