Tommy Ramone TTM

The mail I received today is not sports related, but it's definitely one of my favorite successes so far! I found and tried an address for The Ramones' original drummer and it worked! The Ramones are my favorite band, so this was a very special success for me:

Patrick Roy IP

Tonight was the presentation of the 2007-08 edition of the Quebec Remparts at Place Laurier in Quebec City, QC. There was also a free autograph signing session with the whole team afterwards. The only player missing was Angelo Esposito, since he's still playing with the Pittsburgh Penguins (for now at least!)... So I got the sheet that they were handing out signed by all the rest of the team including Patrick Roy! He also signed these 2 cards for me:

Bobby Doerr TTM

Bobby Doerr c/o home - 16 days - 6/2 (he also signed 4 blank index cards!)

Mike Modano TTM

Mike Modano c/o home - 20 days - 1/1
Since the card he signed for me last month was badly creased, I asked him if he wouldn't mind signing another for me and he did! His signature looks a lot more rushed on this one, but at least the card is not folded in 2! :o)
