Everybody Seems To Get Older!!

Gordie Howe is 85 years old!!!!

So sad to hear that his memory loss is quite significant and debilitating.

I guess I am a hockey fan, after all. It's just that I like to see skill on the ice, not pointless brawls, broken bones and strapping young men having their brains turned to mush. Gordie Howe was one of those guys with actual skill.

I had the honour and pleasure of watching Gordie and the Red Wings play an exhibition game in Red Deer against the Red Deer Rustlers back in the early 1960's. Several of us teen age girls were hanging over the boards watching the warm up, we started yelling Gordie, Gordie. He and the rest of the team (Terry Sawchuk,Sid Abel,Alex Delvecchio,etc.)came over and signed autographs for us. Awesome player, all the best to Gordie.

"Hockey"? Oh, yeah, that sport that comes between Baseball Season and Football Season. ;-)
