      Yup – Gordie “Elbows” Howe; and this was before they wore helmuts

    • Clausewitz

      At least he knew how to protect himself along the boards as opposed to the fools today who turn their backs to a check in the attempt to draw a major penalty. I’m old, so I was taught how to approach the boards with your elbows up so that no one could run you from behind without paying the penalty.

    Mr. Howe was the epitome of all that was right in sports. A glaring contrast to Mo Ali who was the epitome of all that has become wrong in sports.

      watched part of the funeral.. it was disgusting .. an election ad for Hillary…shameless

      • Clausewitz

        Yea, Ali’s funeral was just one long commercial for Muslim supremacy and the kick off to lets get the lying bitch elected tour. I was never a fan of Ali, but he still deserved something a little better than that goat rodeo.

          CBC was gushing over Ali’s spiritual journey, a precious muslim…. they invited a muslim-rapper and an Imam to speak of Ali the muslim saint….. Howe , however had no spirituality to speak of .

    88 years, pretty good innings for anybody plus his recognition as an elder statesman for hockey in his later years, a life well lived.
