Eagleson On Front Page Challenge 1972
Midway throught the 1972 Summit Series, after Team Canada and the Soviets had completed their four games in Canada where Canada recorded one win, one tie, and two losses, organizer and hockey czar Alan Eagleson went on CBC’s Front Page Challenge to talk about the series.
Soon after, Eagleson would hop on a plane and join the Canadian contingent in Moscow, where we know what happened in the days to follow.
I’d never seen this before and just stumbled on it by accident as I was looking for the Front Page Challenge episode in which Bobby Orr was on, which I never found.
If you know the format of FPC, you’ll know that the first part involved the four panelists trying to guest the identity of the mystery guest. Here it jumps right to the part where the panelists talk to the guest. I’ve no idea if any of them guessed Eagleson’s identity or not.
