Hockey Inside/Out has a fantastic eight minute clip of a 1932 Montreal-Toronto game, with Foster Hewitt doing the play-by-play and Howie Morenz showing why he was called the Babe Ruth of Hockey. Big Charlie Conacher, as smooth and as rugged as can be, was the Leaf marksman.
I’m tremendously grateful to see this. I love the old stuff with an unwavering passion, and this clip is magical. Thank you, Hockey Inside/Out gang.
The ad you see at the top is one I clipped from a 1940 newspaper I found. I’ll take two of your best 75 cent tickets please.
And happy Labour Day. I’m off to work shortly, because somebody has to.
