Autographs received in-person at the Chicago Blackhawks Convention on July 19, 2008.
On the second day of the Chicago Blackhawks Convention, I waited in line to get some autographs. My girlfriend Shellie and I got into line for former 'Hawk and current General Manager Dale Tallon's autograph, but he left several minutes before he was "supposed to". Cliff Koroll came out to replace him at the autograph table. No problem, as I always come to these kinds of things prepared.
Shellie and I each got a hockey card signed. Koroll shook my hand and thanked me for coming. I thanked him, too. But Shellie had a really cool, yet short conversation with Mr. Koroll. The back of the card that she got signed had a little cartoon illustration--as many old hockey cards of the 1970s did. The drawing had a sweating little hockey player with a caption that read "Cliff is one of the NHL's hardest workers." When Shellie pointed this out to him, he laughed, smiled, and told her "That's why I made it into the NHL."
