Lacroix encounter of the 3rd kind

So, I'm on my lunch break from work (as some of you know, I'm out in Vegas) and go to my favorite pizza place in town; Settebello. After I sit down I noticed PL eating lunch with his wife, Celine Dion's husband, Eric Lacroix, his wife and grandchildren.

I didn't go over and bother them because I didn't want to intrude on family time. But as I was leaving the restaurant, I bumped into Lacroix's wife and grandson outside. She was wearing an Avs jacket and I "Said, Hey nice jacket! Go Avs!" .

She said "Oh you like the Avalanche?!" and I said "They are my favorite team". She then says "Ohh reallyyy?", as I can tell she's ready to tell me she's married to the President of the team (lol). I said "Yea, I saw you guys eating pizza in there.". And she went on to tell me how Celine Dion's driver is from Rome and introduced them to the place and they fell in love with it. She offered to bring me back inside & introduce me to PL, but I declined & said I didn't want to bother them (he was playing with his grandson).

Anywho, I thought you guys & gals might enjoy my little story Go Avs!

"eating lunch with his wife, Celine Dion's husband, Eric Lacroix, his wife and grandchildren."

Beyond that, 1LS9 was too polite to ask.

Yea, he's got a house out at Lake Las Vegas (really nice area) and actually lives next to Celine Dion. His wife told me they've had a house here for 4 years.

I was a bit surprised to see them here since it is the middle of the NHL season. I asked Mrs. Lacroix if they avoided the snow storm in Denver and she said they were there for it and that they came to town yesterday. I guess since PL isn't GM anymore he doesn't need to be at every Avs game anymore.

Part of the perks of being just the President and not the GM I guess.

He never appeared to have that hard of a body. You know what some people say about eating habbits and genetics...

I know, I know

Genetics are really going against Eric it seems. He reminded me of a fat Chris Penn when I saw him (god rest his soul).

Yeah, he was playing in our rec hockey league (Big Bear) a couple years ago. He was definitely looking like his father. And he didn't skate too hard either.
