Tyler Seguin and the Stanley Cup

Tyler Seguin was signing autographs with the Stanley Cup on Sunday morning at Chinguacousy Park in Brampton. Tyler was born raised in Brampton.

021

It was next to impossible to get a good picture of Tyler. Police were circulating and constantly in the way. You had to sit in line for an hour to get a pic. We didn't arrive early enough and decided it was pointless lining up as he had to leave and the lineup was still long. They started taking 10 person group shots only in the last half hour to get everybody a chance to have a pic with him.

My public pics follow.

Brampton Battalion Home Opener

My entire family and any friends who wanted a free ticket went the Brampton Battalion home opener on September 24th.

215

I got 300 free tickets courtesy Rogers TV to hand out. Total attendance was below 3000, so I was personally responsible for 10% of the tickets.

216

The Battalion lost the game 5-1 to the Erie Otters.

217

During the 1st intermission, my son participated in an ice contest. That's him in the white jacket getting ready.

220

Here's the vid of my son doing play-by-play on the ice. The contest.

Announcer at Battalion Game

Here's my son in a competition during the 1st intermission of this year's Brampton Battalion home opener. He got the loudest cheer, but that's likely because I gave out 300 tickets to the game.

He did a great job. They originally asked one of my son's friends, but he was too afraid. I told my son to step up and he jumped at the chance.

Interstate Batteries Truck
I was suprised last week to find an Interstate Batteries truck painted the colors of Kyle Busch and Bobby Labonte's #18 NASCAR. Racing is not a popular sport in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. I doubt anybody in the parking lot understood the significance of the paint job.

Battalion v Mississauga, Game 6

The lineup to get into the Battalion v St Mikes game last night went from the arena, to the sidewalk, down the street a block and around the corner. Oddly, there was only 3,800 at the game. Which is a lot of Mississauga, but obviously more than they are prepared to handle. We arrived about 40 minutes early, which is usually very early for an OHL game, but had to lineup around the corner.

016 

It was a great game with Brampton winning 3-2 and taking the series in 6 games. The video is of the 3 stars (volume is noisy).

Brampton Battalion

Some pics from the recent Battalion-Icedogs game. I caught two Pizza Pizza giveaway t-shirts from Sarge. He autographed one for my son and I gave the other to another boy.

Brampton Battalion

Sunday, my son's hockey team was invited to the Brampton Battalion hockey game against the Soo Greyhounds. We sat behind the visiting teams net. After the game, we played a father and son's hockey game on the Battalion ice.
