Wayne was quite a skilled player. It is a shame that Dave Hrechkosy didn't work out as planned.
I'm going to have to find this book on the Seals. I was unaware of it. A former seal that became a Blue by the name of Len Frig was a super nice guy. I got to meet him as a kid and get my picture with him.
I'd love to own either the green and gold or the old whatever color those light bluish greenish jerseys are. Those were cool.
