Why I Like Mike!


mike modanors Why I Like Mike!

In the 90’s, I had just been stiffed on my annual charity event by one of the most famous Dallas Cowboys of all time. Guess Who?I’ll give you a hint. On the way back to the station today…I passed through TROY!  Actually he made up for it down the road. On to the happy ending.

I made a phone call to the Dallas Stars trying to find a player in a pinch. I couldn’t believe it when their PR guy called back and said Mike Modano had an interest in our cause and would show up for one hour. Dallas wasn’t a hockey hot-bed at the time but the line around this Pizza Hut, wrapped  around twice. Mike was so gracious and wound up signing autographs for two and a half hours. We raised nearly $10,000 for Children’s Hospital. This would have never been accomplished without Mike Modano. I didn’t have a favorite hockey player at the time but since that day, it’s been #9. Here’s hoping that the Wings sign him and bring him back home soon!!!
