^^^ Terrific picture! Love the tube skates, gloves, wooden stick, no helmet. Guess thats his own rink there, and I must say looks beyond charming. Great spot. Havin fun. Freedom.... he'd acquired quite a bit of wealth through the Peanuts & Charlie Brown franchise. At his death a reputed $26M. Its almost a wonder he didnt buy an NHL Franchise back in the day, however, as someone who seriously shunned the limelight, dont think he'd have worn that yoke very comfortably. Cant imagine him rubbing elbows with the likes of a Clarence Campbell, Wirtz or Ballard, any of em' really.... and on the topic of celebrities, didnt Bing Crosby own a piece of the Seals for awhile or was he involved in the failed Seattle bid back in 74 when that city was in fact granted a franchise conditionally?... Canadian born actor Glenn Ford as well, made a play for the Atlanta Flames back in 78/79 however Skalbania doubled up on his group & moved the franchise to Calgary as we know.
