Feb 28--Hockey Night in Brantford

Nothing for the 23 players who have today as their birthdate.

So I'm thinking ahead to Hockey Night in Brantford on Aug 15 2012 to raise funds for the United Way.

Maybe ROY??? Adam Henrique will be there. I got last years Calder winner Jeff Skinner at the Memorial Cup. 
Today is Trade Deadline Day. This has somehow become must see TV, internet, radio and just about every media platform. Each station seems to have a zillion experts who will try to break any trade story and then dissect it to death. And yes. I'll be keeping up to date to see what my Leafs will do. A number one goalie? A top six forward?  A tumble from the top eight playoff teams (a 1-7-1 record), several players in slumps, a pending roster shakeup and the usual fan and media pressure has unsettled the dressing room.
Saturday’s pre-game ceremony against the Capitals celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1962 Stanley Cup champions, the first of 3 in a row. I was a mere lad of 10 and thought this would go on forever. Maybe we should sign some of these guys up for this years stretch run.

Back in the day, I used to take my youngest daughter to card shows and stores. She used to have good luck picking up some inserts and some of the better cards. We were out Sunday and went to a dollar store for some things. They had some packs of 11/12 Score so I had her pick me out a pack.

So I got a base card of Trevor Gillies and the Gold Rush parallel. Well, odds of 1:36. Too bad it wasn't somebody else but still....

Labeled an outcast by his brainy family, a bouncer overcomes long odds to lead a team of under performing misfits to semi-pro hockey glory, beating the crap out of everything that stands in his way.

Slapshot, Youngblood, Happy Gilmore.......

Violence in hockey?  Probably won't pay to see this at  the theatre but maybe rent when it comes out on video.
