Orr is the greatest player I have ever seen play hockey.
That’s what my Dad used to say. I saw him play as a 6 year old kid in the Canada Cup and as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks in 78/79. I think it may have even been his last game. He was on gimped knees by then but he was still one of the best players out there.

The best players I have ever seen are Wayne and Mario. Nobody close to them imho. I think if Eric Lindros has learned to keep his head up he could have been close.

Cherry is a clown and has been for years but the guy is an institution and this was a bullshit reason to fire him. The reality is he should have retired five years ago. Some of the old pricks don’t know when to go away. I’m looking at you Bob Cole, Brian Williams, Tony Parsons.

Vin Scully is the best baseball announcer that ever was. I think he could still call a game in his 90’s. Bob Costas was damn good. Al Michaels. Then you have dorks like Harry Carey who wont leave. The good ones know when to pack it in.

I wear mine for a week or 2 :wink:
You’re supposed to wear it from Nov 1, to Nov 11, 11am where upon you stop what the fuck your doing and stand still for a minute of silence. Then you’re supposed to take it off and go down to the local legion and buy a round.

That’s what you’re supposed to do...

Are there enough Legions in Canada to fit its entire population in at 11:01am November 11th?

Are you sure they didn’t build a new one? That’s what they’ve done North Van, is build a new one in same location or at another when their sites are developed. I think you need to dig further

This.

Yet you see clowns still wearing poppies this weekend. Willie Desjardins wore his until late November one season behind the bench. No common sense at all.

It should be hunting season on anyone wearing poppies after November 11th and on anyone not wearing poppies between nov. 1st snd November 11th. Call it the Poppy Purge. The Canadian Cleanse. The Nation Wide Whitener.

Never worn such a thing. But you can keep rocking that peculiar fantasy of yours if it blows your hair back. Persistent talking about dudes in spandex. :oops: Berryman, your thoughts?

This isn’t what you told the masses at the security guard’s board. It doesn’t jive at all. It’s no fantasy of mine. I think it’s an illness on your part Zukerman. I’m here to help.
