I hope to develop a more effective serve when I go on vacation in November because there won't be any contemporaries for me to take advantage of.
Maurice Richard remains my all time hockey hero but the greatest player I ever saw was Bobby Orr.
Are you really 83? That's awesome. That's the upside of a semi-annonymous board like this. A lot of us might not ever talk about hockey or anything in real life, but here, you can argue, agree, sling insults and mend bridges with people who are from completely different generations.
Also, are there really members under 10? Really would like to know who, I'm curious.
