It’s Not Over Till The Fat Scrapbook Sings

I sincerely hope you’re not getting bored with the continuing saga of “The Scrapbook.” I know the players are of long ago, but as many of you already know, it’s a very important thing for me.

The player taking the shot from well out is Bobby Rousseau scoring on a penalty shot. It’s one of my favourite pictures, because Rousseau had the balls to take this long shot and he pulled it off.

At the bottom is a newspaper item I glued in years later because I had an open spot on a page for some reason. It’s a gathering of the clan, retired Canadiens players from the 50’s who had enjoyed five straight Stanley Cups, telling the team of the 80’s to put a stop to the madness in Long Island, where the Islanders were winning 4 Stanley Cups. 

And as I always like to say, you can see previous scrapbook pages by simply going over to “Categories” on the right side and clicking on “The Old Scrapbook.”

  1. That Rosseau penalty shot goal came in his rookie year.

    He was a great scorer, but often underappreciated by the Habs faithful for his reluctance to take a hit and his use of a helmet.

  2. Hi Kevin. I always liked Rousseau because he had so much skill and such a great shot. A fairly skinny guy too. He was the golf pro at course at Ste. Hyacinthe and when I was 14 I spent a month there with a French family on this English-French student exchange, and I went to the golf course hoping to see him. Didn’t happen, though.

  3. Dennis, a scrapbook is made for holding mere scraps of paper. But this book contains priceless golden memories. It’s really the goldenbook.

  4. Ah I am so depressed. This book is too much. I really think you should have this bound and protected. This is gold!
