Photo For A Special Visitor


Here is a picture I found of Gerry Cheever who used to be a pin up poster for one of my visitors. An anonymous visitor from Cormac McCarthy book club left some cool comments in this post the other day: about hockey in Detroit. Thanks "Penelope" and here is a pic for you of your ol hockey hero.

Some of my hockey heros include Matt Sundin, Doug Gilmore, Daryll Sittler, Wendell Clark, Mark Messier, Stan Smyl, Harold Sneptis, Ptrik Sundstrom, Theron Fleury, Robert Reichel, Pavel Bure, Rocket Richard, Booby Orr.

Any other hockey fans out there? Who are your favourite players? (Um actually...I know Canuck Hockey Girl is a fan...and this is kinda weird...she interviewed me on her blog this week. It was a lot of fun to answer her questions. To read this interview, please click on the yellow text...)

I used to be a huge Montreal fan in the 90s, but have let it go in recent years. I haven't followed hockey closely in over a decade. I still root for the Habs, though, when push comes to shove.

I am not a hockey fan. But we do watch football.

Cheever! That's from back in the day when Don Awrey played and I had the biggest crush on him! Cool!

There are so many teams and so many games, the whole business has been watered down. My brother, Salvelinas Fontinalis used to say somthing like, "Gretzky's the only guy who tries all season". Tune into a hockey game halfway through the NHL season. Remember what you saw (if you didn't nod off). Then tune in during the playoffs. It hardly looks like the same game.

I enjoy playoff hockey a lot. I don't care much about who wins or loses, although sometimes I'll pick a team to cheer for, usually the underdog.

Omg, Candy!
You're the BEST! It's enough to send my pubescent-era hormones soaring again! This is a fantastic pic. Of course, looks and grit like that could only come from Canada..I think he was born in Ontario. Thanks!
