Funny Swedish hockey fan story for us old guys. I'm 51. I'm sitting in a bar in Benidorm, Spain. A lovely, quaint little resort town. Nice British style pub. I was in the navy. Have a couple beers and start talking to guy near us. He's from Sweden. I asked him if he was a hockey fan. Was right before Canada Cup in 81. I tell him I'm a Bruins fan. I say don't we have some kid on your team Michael Thelven. He's like yeah, the only Swedish Goon in the SEL at the time. Whenever I saw Thelven play I immediately thought of that guy. Especially, when he broke Stephane Richer's ankle in 88
