The Blunt Bean Counter- One on One with Cujo, Fuhr, Smith or Small

Two months or so ago, I went to our local Mr. Sub with my daughter and was given a contest form for a Mr. Sub Shootout . I asked the Mr. Sub owner what the contest was for and he was not sure. Anyway, I filled out the form and forgot about it. Yesterday I got an email from Mr. Sub because I was one of the 390 winners of the Prize B package.

The Prize B package entitles me to take to the ice at the Air Canada Centre on February 20th and to put my best moves on one of either Grant Fuhr, Sami Jo Small, Curtis Joseph or Billy Smith.

Pretty cool, plus in addition, the shootout will be videotaped, which could be embarrassing. After playing hockey every year of my life, I stopped playing this year due to some injuries I incurred last year. I have not skated or played since last April, so I will be pretty rusty.

However, even as my skating speed has slowed down substantially, I still have the moves (at least in my brain, which may or may not transmit to my hands) and I have a great move already thought out (the old drop the puck through my skates, kick it with the inside of my right skate to the outside of my left skate and go top shelf). Of course I will probably trip over the puck trying this, but we shall see.

I will update my success or failure in a future blog.
