Friendly Encounters

This is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebs.

Sal is a fellow Aquarian, blogging, hockey fan from Chicago.  Actually, Sal runs several interesting sites, but more on that later.  Today, I am featuring Sal's friendly encounter at the Blackhawks Training Camp Fest in 2010.
Sal met quite a few former and current Blackhawks and the Stanley Cup, too!  His reports can be found on Puck Junk.  There are also quite a few great pictures there.  It looks like Sal had a great time.
As I mentioned, Sal does a few sites.  Along with Puck Junk, Sal also does Sal's Hockey Autographs and his own portfolio site.
He also creates virtual hockey cards on Sal's Custom Hockey Cards.  This site is full of great cards that Sal created for various reasons.  Some cards are for friends.  Some serve to give a player a card that was missed by the card companies of the time.  Others are fun cards created for fictional characters, like the Youngblood cards pictured on the right side.  Peter Zezel, Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze are given cards based on their roles in Youngblood.  Awesome!
I appreciate Sal sharing his stuff here.  I really enjoy his work on all of his sites.  I am sure if you check them out, you'll enjoy them as much as I do.

Hey, thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you like the custom Youngblood cards too. Got a few more on the back burner that I have to finish.

Would love to buy them, how much if you are selling?
