i’m not sure if this is the right place for this, so please tell me if it belongs elsewhere. My family, (parents, younger brother, and myself) had gone up to Toronto to pick up some relatives flying in and had stopped at a restaurant to grab a bite before going to the airport to pick up the relatives. As we sat there, a lady and her two kids (young teens, I’m not good with ages) came up to the table and told my brother, “We’re big Maple Leafs fans and my kids wanted your autograph and perhaps a picture with you.” Obviously not big enough fans to recognize my brother, though a large man who plays rec-league hockey, was not the Maple Leaf they thought he was. He tried to explain they had made a mistake, when she said, “No, you are. Why won’t you do this for two of your biggest fans? Wouldn’t it impress your girl here (pointing at me) if you did something nice for the kids?” I stifled a laugh and said, “Go on honey, give them your autograph.” (Not helping, I know, but I’m that kind of a girl, always stirring the pot), so he signed their papers with his real name and posed for a picture with them. the lady looked at the signature and said, “You don’t have to use a fake name, just sign your real one.” My dad couldn’t take it anymore and said, “Lady, the team is in Florida right now. This is my son and he doesn’t play for the Maple Leafs.” She threw the papers down and grabbed her kids and stormed off, muttering how the team just lost two young fans because of him. I asked him later why didn’t he just forge the player’s signature and he said he thought it might help her figure out that he wasn’t who she thought he was. This happened a couple of years ago, so sorry for any inaccuracies in the story.
