Good Guys, These Ducks

As I've previously mentioned in this space, the monitoring of the Contact Us emails we get can be an experience that is at times bewildering, sometimes frustrating, but oftentimes inspiring. We got another good one just today:

My husband and I went to the Monday (3/31) game against the Winnipeg Jets. It was an amazing comeback and it was one of the best games we've ever experienced at the Honda Center.

The next day, we managed to catch the Ducks practice at Anaheim Ice. We were also able to grab some pictures and autographs from some of the players.

I just wanted to say, how awesome and nice the players are. They didn't deny any autographs or pictures. Even though it's after practice and they probably just want to go home, they were welcoming of the fans.

One player that stood out was Tim Jackman. He was friendly to the fans and I had no idea he was a funny guy. As my husband was counting down "1,2,3" to take a picture of us, Tim was like "Ducks!" and it made us giggle. And he has such a charming smile!

It might not be a big deal to the players, but as a fan it meant a lot to me. It was priceless and not only did they make my day, they made my entire year! I was extremely happy and giddy. I was also happy for my husband who managed to get Getzy's autograph on his Getzy jersey, because he's been wanting it for years. He was happy for me that I got my Hiller autograph. :)

I want to say thank you to the Ducks players and the organization for being so awesome to the fans and bringing smiles to our faces.

I am extremely proud to be a Ducks fan.

Thank you again.

Forever a Ducks fan,

Rie Sly
