I don't chirp him too badly, since I only play shinny with him once or twice a year. But he looks like a real joker out there nonetheless.
I love seeing old vintage gear on the ice. There's a guy that wears the old Messier-style cooper helmet in our league. There's even a guy sporting the old Wayne Gretzky Jofa. (even though it does not even come close to meeting safety standards...)
