Last Thursday, my step-dad took Tyson to the MN Wild Hockey practice and they then got to visit with the team in the locker room after practice. For those of you that know Ty, and his obsession with hockey, you know what an amazing experience this must’ve been for him. I thought he would clam up and get all star struck, but that’s the beauty of the age he’s at, he has NO fear! He talked to the guys and even called them by their first names, just like he’d known them all his life and hung out with them every day!
Here are a few of the highlights from his day!
I think I need to teach Grandpa how to focus his camera 😛
Sporting his new Wild jersey
Heading into the locker room
Hangin with Brent Burns
This is Nik Backstrom, one of the goalies. He and the other goalie gave Ty a signed goalie stick! The thing is HUGE!!!
Josh Harding, the other goalie we have
Here’s one with the giant stick. Good thing it’s staying at Grandma’s house!
Robbie Earl I think? I think he’s a new guy
Sheppard, mommy doesn’t know his first name, so last name will have to do.
He’s so spoiled, isn’t he?
