A few years ago, I was at Karl Alzner and John Carlson’s kids press conference at the Caps Convention. I remember someone asking Alzner what the weirdest thing he ever signed was. A whip, he answered, because who even has a whip.
On Tuesday night, Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby had his own weird autograph moment at the Caps’ annual season-ticket holder party at Six Flags. Hotlby’s thing was cuter than Alzner’s though. Holtby signed a baby.
I don’t know what motivated theses parents. Maybe they were really, really excited about Nicklas Backstrom’s new baby and thought this is how you celebrate. Maybe they got confused when they learned that season tickets would literally cost them their first born. Maybe they want their kid to become a famous goaltender with a nice head of hair.
At least Martin Erat got to sign something other than a photo of Filip Forsberg this year.
