Chris Meets One of the Wolves!

Today at our local library, a special guest came to the weekly children's story time. Jared Ross, a professional hockey player with the Chicago Wolves stopped by to talk to the kids and sign autographs.

Chris isn't a hockey fan yet, but he really enjoyed Jared's talk and especially his humor. I think it's great that professional athletes take the time out of their schedules to meet little kids and answer their questions about pro sports. The kids seem to discover that the athletes not only worked hard at their sport, but also at their studies in school.

Jared's 23 and he's had a rough year with the Wolves - he lost two teeth! His dentist (also his mother) wasn't too thrilled with that.

Here's a copy of the 8 x 10 photo Jared autographed for Chris.
