Friendly Encounters

This is a series dedicated to my friends meeting celebs.

I can't believe that a blogging buddy in Calgary got his picture with the Stanley Cup and Jordan Hendry before I did! Oh well, at least I can live vicariously through Kolin!
Kolin is the hockey fan behind Hockey Freaks I and Hockey Freaks II (and actually some other blogs and a YouTube channel). All of his sites are fun and interesting and certainly worth checking out. He has appeared here before, sharing some great hockey photos.
Recently, Kolin met Jordan Hendry, a member of the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks (I love that phrase). Kolin met Hendry without the Cup, but decided to return later to see the trophy. The wait was worth it, as Kolin and his wife Connie were able to pose with Hendry and the Cup. How cool is that?
You can read Kolin's firsthand account here. The whole story and the pictures are awesome. I just appreciate Kolin sharing his experience on Johngy's Beat.
