Howe's It Hangin', Mr. Hockey?
Because we're gonna start niche programming here at Unfair Park -- hey, you ask for something, you'll get it -- here's an answer to a question this sexy Friend of Unfair Park had earlier today concerning the schedule for the NHL All-Star Trading Card and Memorabilia show taking place Saturday and Sunday at NorthPark Center.
Yo, Sam, we placed some calls to Dallas Stars and National Hockey League types and found out that Gordie Howe will be signing autographs at the mall from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday. The league isn't being more specific about who else will be there; they worry that if they advertise some of the old-timers, well, they might not show even if you do. Nonetheless, here's the rest of the more-or-less schedule:
On Saturday from 11 a.m.-noon and 3-4 p.m., NHL alumni will be signing autographs; in between you can sneak a peek at the Stanley Cup. On Sunday, the Cup's making another appearance ("Wow, how exciting," he said in a monotone deadpan), followed by Mr. Hockey from 2-3 p.m. and them more alumni from 3-4 p.m. Then, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Sunday, members of Your Dallas Stars will be on hand to sign your cards or your baby or your breasts or whatever else you have on hand.
Hope that helps, Sam and anyone else who needs to know where Gordie Howe was going to be Sunday. For now, that's really more hockey than I care to write about. --Robert Wilonsky
