I like the stories which feature him. There hasn't been a new one for a while, though.

HI guys,  just taking a walk through and saw "fall in Canada" , wow ::) it's one of my favourite times with all the colours and you're right,  we complain about the humidity and then the snow  ;D   here in s.Ontario we are not as bad as up north (so my friends tell me all the time) ;D  here's hoping for a good winter with no snow, well you can dream  ;D ;D sixtyniner

  SIXTYNINER,   hi,   lived in Oakville from 83 to 2003, then moved back to the Peg.  Expecting 20c for the next weekend but nighttime temps are dropping off now,2c this morning  but on frost yet.

   When you can relight the christmas lights you did,nt take down after last xmas.

   When the field mice become house mice.

   when a new season full of forlorn hope starts for the Maple Leafs.

Hi Moorsy,

my neighbour is an ex Maple Leaf Goalie, he has won 4 Stanley Cups, the last being '67.  :-[ We told him we were going to send him back to the Leafs, maybe then they would get to the playoffs.  ;D :D ::)   A finer gentleman you could ever wish to meet.

I also love this time of year, especially the colours of the trees as they change, pictures never do it enough justice, as seeing it in person.

   VAL,  are you talking about Johnny Bower???   They beat the Habs that year, the last time they ever won the Stanley Cup.

I must ask him why, or do you think that is not Kosher. :-\  He has hands on him like baseball mitts, I cringe when he shakes hands with me.  ;D

I loved Terry Sawchuk & Guy LaPlante, back then the hockey was enjoyable to watch. Since they brought in all those other teams I lost interest.
Johnny, just signed some memorabilia for my nephews who are up here for a year, to play hockey.  My husband also took pictures of them all together.

  BOWER GOT HURT IN THE WARM-UP FOR GAME THREE.

  A COUPLE OF THINGS PUT ME OFF WATCHING N,H,L. HOCKEY, ONE WAS WHEN THEY STARTED WEARING HELMETS, HOW COULD YOU EVER FORGET GUY LAFLARE GOING DOWN THE WING WITH HIS HAIR STREAMING . THE HELMETS REDUCED THEIR PERSONALITYS.  THE LAST STRAW WAS THE STRIKE.

 I ONLY WATCH THE JUNIOR TEAMS NOW.

Those were the days, it's great to get John started on some stories and pranks they played on each other then. He is a great Ambassador for the game and he works tirelessly for all charities.  They named the little parkette just across the street from me, after him.

  I DONT THINK HE WOULD MIND IF YOU ASKED HIM ABOUT HIS NICKNAME.

  I THINK VACHON WAS THE GOALIE FOR THE HABS IN THAT SERIES BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN GUMP WORSLEY.

 WAS AT THE OLD FORUM IN MONTREAL FOR THE SECOND FROM LAST GAME PLAYED THERE . YOU KNOW THERE WAS NO FLOOR UNDER THE ICE IN THERE,JUST SAND, AND IT WAS ALWAYS FROZEN.

hi moorsy,  does anyone know where messages disapear to, my last one just did when i was using spell check, yes i use it. :idiot2:  i will try and remember what i said so here goes.  i was never into hockey because  i did not have anyone playing in it to relate to, but my boss sponsered "old timers"  i went to see them and it was very cold but great.   the guys in work were all into hockey so it was hard not to get caught up in it.  8)  the time "team canada" was playing i could not wait to get home and watch and really enjoyed it 8)  i am more into soccer and tennis, yes,  i live in burlington so the leaves are on the turn on some of the trees unless the rain turns them all to mush before then but like i say it's better than shovelling ;D ;D wow, this is like a book so i'll end now.  sixtyniner
