Tell us some war stories.

Just kidding, welcome to HF, im Mooch, and ill be your guide for the rest of your time here. Feel free to interupt any time and ask questions as this place can confuse new comers quite drastically. Nothing is normal here, in fact we are not normal here. We do however ingage in some very well thought out discussions, like who exactly is the hottest hab player.

He was either trying to catch the puck or bat it away when he directed it into his own net, if I got the story right. I always thought that he was the athlete, not just hockey player, that my father admired the most. I share your Blue Monday pain. I saw it on a portable TV we snuck into the office. The only thing that eased the pain was the firm belief that we would be back every year. Who knew ? I was too young to see the Hunsinger fumble live, but have seen it on film many times. A few years back during one of those CFL historical shows that seem to come on at Grey Cup time, they showed it from a side angle. To me, it seemed clear that he made a decision[ a bad one] to throw the ball forward to avoid a loss. If anything, it should have been called an incomplete pass. It was 50 years ago, but I wonder if there was much dispute over the call. Today, they'd explore 10 camera angles and probably still get it wrong.
Regarding Leswick's goal I'll give you Geoffrion's version in his autobiography written by Stan Fischler:

"Just past the four-minute mark Doug Harvey picked out the puck from a Detroit attack and cleared it behind our net. It made a complete circle and slid out swiftly on the opposite side to Glen Skof of Detroit. He passed it over to Tony Leswick, one of the Red Wings' defensive specialists.

Leswick was on his way back to the bench for a line change and shot the puck at our goal to kill time. He whipped a waist-high drive toward the net. Harvey was standing in front of McNeil and normally would have reached out and caught it. Doug was an excellent ball player but this time the puck was curving in flight just a bit. It hit Harvey's outstretched hand, took a sharp switch and tore into the high left-hand corner of the net past Gerry McNeil.

I was checking Skov in front of the net, Harvey later recalled, and I saw the shot coming. Instinctively I put up my hand and I got a piece of it. But it bounced off behind Gerry who had been prepared to take it on his chest. He had no chance."

About the Chuck Hunsigner fumble, you're right. It should have been called an illegal forward pass and the play blown dead as Hunsigner was a half back. Parker of the Eskimos picked up the ball and ran it back for a TD. The refs called it an incomplete lateral pass or a fumble. The Als were leading by 6 points with barely a minute left to play and the ball was inside the Eskimo's 15 yard line. Hunsigner should have kept the ball. The Als would have kicked a field goal on the next play and with a 9-point lead the Grey Cup would have been in the bag.

I think this is one of the few boards where the majority of posters are not teenagers.

I think the Bruin's board probably is a bit older than this one. At least the regular posters seem to be mainly 27-45.

I've hit the Golden Age!
I turned 16 back in October, got my full license the end of march, and a car a few weeks back.
From listening to you guys I guess it gets better the next few years, then the wheels fall off, and I'm done.

yup, it gets better, I'd say. My personal favourite age was "22" (like mike bossy).

And congrats on your licence!

You're right. Still, it's strange they have no sense of humour over there. I figured most of us are mellow because we were older (except me who's scathing).


I'm going to be attacked now by grapes and wally aren't I...

I find the B's can have fun, though often in a Hab bashing sort of way. I don't see a lot of the lunacy on the others though that we enjoy here.

Yup, that was the year I got hooked. I remember tearing up Ed Giacomin's card the next year as he did his happy dance in the crease as the Rangers were eliminating the Habs(at least I think it was the next year)

Oh yeah what's my age again....41

Old enough to remember John Ferguson doing GM Ken Ullyot a favor. The Canadiens came to Fort Wayne in November 1962 to play our Komets. They beat us 4-1 and I became a Habs fan for life. The Habs also returned in November '64 and beat us 5-1. Still have the programs!!
