Feb 24--Time Tunnel--Sept 27 1986

Since I have no autographed items for any of the 19 players with today as their birthdate, lets take a trip back to Saturday Sept 27 1986.

Souvenir program with $1.00 price tag.

The host and presenters welcome messages to fans.

Boston Bruins lineup.

Washington Capitals lineup.

Now, I don't remember actually going to this game and I don't remember where I got the program.I don't remember doing any autograph hounding. I don't remember what I had for lunch yesterday. Most things I have I can put a story to but this eludes me. While trying to find information on this, I saw the exact same program on Kijiji for $40.00.

Now we jump into the Delorean to Feb 2007.

Now I didn't know of this giveaway. I had to go to Pharma Plus to pick up a prescription. While I was waiting I walked around and saw these cards for the taking. I saw. I took. Free is always good. You never know when something will pop up so I'm always on the look out. Not a Messier fan but anything HOCKEY rules. Now some memories are floating back.
I had Portuguese chicken for lunch yesterday.
