Hey gang,
This past Friday Wayne Gretzky had a little get together with Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper.
The exchange both behind the rods and at the chat with the audience was a cordial affair.
BUT this exchange believe it or not was the brain child of Mark Sokolski and it was in the works for more then 2 yrs.
I had the pleasure along with John Fayolle in being invited to be a part of Mark's dream meeting.
Although my roll in this event was one of support, I was happy to be there for Mark.
Mark mentioned to me on Saturday that the photo op. Had gone viral on social media.

Very nicely done Mark.

Dave

Thanks Andrew...
the last few days have been pretty crazy too. Great follow up after the Fridy night event. The office of the PM informed me that the table hockey photo has been one of the most widely viewed social media events of the year. If you can imagine, the shot was viewed over 10 million times in the first 24 hours. The controversy around the politics is creating quite the buzz, and that, I figure,. is still great for table hockey! Smile

On the link Andrew posted, I wanted to note that if you flip through the photo deck, you will see 4 of the Soho games made by John Fayolle. A kind word of thanks must go out to him, as he personally brought these in from New York, as the photo shoot was made complete by having these beauties on display. They were used for several hours by the kids hockey team which was in the photo shoot. John had the LA Kings game signed by PM Stephen Harper - and this game is now in the home of Wayne Gretzky!!!
I outfitted the game with 80's Oilers and Kings coleco players.

This was a truly unforgettable evening, which I shared with my kids, who were so excited to be a part of it all. Both Wayne Gretzky and Stephen Harper were great gentlemen, and spoke with my children and I for several minutes... my son got a hockey card autographed. I thought he was gonna pass out...

wow
