oilers autograph session

the yearly autograph session in the mall was this afternoon and as usual the line-ups were long. its the most popular event. good way for the fans and players to interact. i was sooooo close to getting fernando pisani and robert nillson. but one of the event staff people said i couldn't because i wasnt in line (i was on my break at the time). lots of oilers jerseys and player cards signed and alot of happy fans.
