Making it official
Before last Christmas, I told Colin that he could get a new Lightning jersey personalized with a player's name and number. Rather than Steven Stamkos, Marty St. Louis, Vinny Lecavalier or Victor Hedman, Colin said he wanted one of Adam Hall. Given that both are grinders -- players who place as much emphasis on defense as offense -- it made perfect sense to me.
Earlier tonight, during a break from playing street hockey, Colin had Hall sign his Lightning #18 jersey for him during the Lightning Summer Tour stop in Pinellas Park. Now that it's signed, it's unlikely it'll see any more practices. Skating sessions and Lightning games, however, will be just fine.
