Though there's no real reason why it happened, but a 28-day stretch from Jan. 24 to Feb. 20 turned out to be the busiest hounding month so far of the 2011-12 hockey-hounding campaign. Want proof? I spent more than three hours earlier this week just scanning cards and pucks for future posts.
For the record, Colin and I scored 178 autographs, including 23 pucks, in eight adventures, including one double-dip day featuring the Ottawa Senators and the San Jose Sharks. The Anaheim Ducks, with 47 autographs, gave us our best day.
At best, we have six adventures on the agenda until season's end. Suffice to say, Colin's hockey took greater precedence this season than hounding. Trust me, there are no regrets. His hockey is are far more important than hounding.
