Keep ’em honest

It should come as no surprise that hockey players are not always truthful, especially when it comes to hounds. Take San Jose’s Mark Bell, for instance.

Last night, as he was headed out for dinner, I asked him to sign three pucks.

“Not right now,” he said, “but I will later. I’ll be back in a few minutes.”

Having heard players utter that line many times before, I didn’t hold my breath. Though I stuck around for another 45 minutes, and snagged a couple autographs from Sharks goalie Vesa Toskala, Bell didn't return by the time I left. I was not surprised.

Earlier today, before we went to the game, I held Bell to his word. My patience paid off.
