He looks a bit...thin? Maybe it's just that I'm used to seeing him in full gear.

Are sales in your store so good that customers are literally climbing the walls?

ok let me answer all of the questions in one response,,

My store is Unique Photo...NJ's Best Camera Store. That dude on the pole behind me is part of a LowePro bag display with a climber wearing a LowePro camera backpack. I am big on merchandising and display and we have some awesome stuff in there.

I am 5'10", 185 and I spend a lot of time on the weights... so you can measure him from there... we definitely have different body types...lol

Zubrus was in to buy a Fuji X-E1 DSLR. He has a remarkable collection of cameras and and even more remarkable knowledge of cameras and photography. Even without looking at his work, he is clearly professional level for sure. He spent about 2 hours in the store playing with everything...Fuji, Nikon, video, monitors...a kid in a candy store. He was very price conscious and comically concerned about getting maximum value for his older stiff, which he has tons. I suggested he trade some of it in but he wanted to maximize return on Ebay,,,lol... which of course isn't true and a bizarre thing for famous people to do.

We have a gourmet coffee bar in the store and I gave him some espresso which he approved highly of. He wanted me to get my salesperson a coffee too but she whipped out a Red Bull and he responded, "I have 2 of those before each game.. gotta get up for it"

While we were pulling his camera I gave him a tour of my Devils Display in my office (He was impressed). We talked about the labor dispute and he really felt the road they are going on, similar to what the NBA did with decertifying the union will work and force the owners, who are being "unfair" to settle. He spoke a bit about Lou and is was very complimentary.

He has a large Epson printer which we talked about its worth because he figured he's going to have to move it after this year since his contract has only one more year and "while I'd love to re-sign with the Devils, you really never know what will happen...I'll be 36 ya know."

"Marion Gaborik scored his 65th, 66th, 67th, and 68th goals of the season tonight.

However, The Rangers were beaten by the Maple Leafs 6-4. Rather than bore you with those highlights, let's enjoy yet another encore presentation of our great MSG documentary, "1994: The Year We Can't Stop Thinking About" " - Warren
