Meet Igor, get signed copy of "Farewell from Moscow" by Leelanau Sports Guy's World

LSG writes:
Former Red Wing Larionov will be signing copies of his DVD "Farewell from Moscow - The Igor Larionov Farewell Game" from 11:30am to 1 pm. A portion of the proceeds from DVD sales will benefit the Igor Larionov Youth Hockey Charitable Foundation.
According to the official Igor Larionov website:
"Farewell From Moscow: The Igor Larionov Farewell Game" DVD will leave sports fans feeling like they were in Moscow alongside hockey legend, Igor Larionov and a roster of the NHL's finest when he stepped on to the ice for his final game on December 13, 2004.

Touted as one of the greatest sports moments in sports history, Larionov's farewell game was captured in its entirety and has been incorporated as part of the fast-paced, cutting-edge DVD.
Jim Byers of the Toronto Sun describes Igor as both remarkable and a rebel in his article entitled "The art of aging gracefully".
In a career spanning a remarkable 27 years, Igor Larionov did just about everything you can do in hockey. He won Olympic gold medals for the Soviet Union in 1984 and 1988. He won three Stanley Cup rings. He skated with some of the greatest players in history. Next year, he becomes eligible for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

But Larionov is just as well known as a rebel, working with Slava Fetisov and others to break down the barriers that prevented his countrymen from playing in the NHL. He has been called the most politically important athlete of the 20th century.
