    It does seem to be official that he was doing something that he loved this morning.

    8 posts in a memorial thread for a hockey player. :jj:

    I guess @freds is too busy working on NBA conspiracy theories to give a fuck about Gordie Howe.

    I don't even know who he is.

    I just like pointing out to @freds that no one gives a shit about hockey and wait for him to spin it.

    It's a bummer when a Legend goes.


    When I was with Tim Hortons in 08' I got to meet him. He would come into my Northville store. The first time he came in, I freaked and the staff said he came in at least twice a week. I told him how great it was to meet an icon and a Red Wings legend, he smiled, thanked me and shook my hand. The following few months I was at that store, I saw him over a dozen times and he ALWAYS shook my hand and talked with me for a few minutes.


    He genuinely was a good guy. He lived a long and storied life.

    The local sports station was talking about this all day.
    Countless callers telling their stories of meeting him. He truly was a gentleman and a all around great guy.

    Someone suggested they name the new Red Wings arena after him.
    I think that would be a great idea.

    RIP Mr. Hockey.

    Do you really not know who he is.
    That would be like saying I have no idea who Jerry West is.

    BTW my Nana had season tickets to WVU basketball and tell be stories about watching him play.
    She was also a big Pistons fan and loved the late 80's rivalry with the Lakers.

    This might not be an exact quote but she would say something like "That poor Dennis Rodman, he is so ugly."
