Those Were The Days

What, you say I never played for the Habs?

Then who’s that in the middle of the back row?

59-60 Habs

Yes, I remember it well. Me and Rocket and Doug sticking lit firecrackers in Boom Boom’s pajamas as he slept. Stealing Toe’s fedora and blaming it on Hicke. Putting Ex-Lax in Plante’s hot chocolate. Finding Backstrom’s paycheque and giving it to the Conservative Party.

But for all the hilarious hi-jinks, we still won plenty of games and were on top of the world. And I like to think that as a smallish-yet-shifty right winger, I did my part.

Those were the days, my friends.

Thanks to a great guy, Ed Wolk in Ottawa, for sending me this big surprise – the only known photo of me with the Habs. (I tried to stay out of the limelight).

  1. Legend has it that the smallish-but-shifty right winger not only played great pranks but he also excelled at being friendly with the Habs players’ wives and girlfriends.

  2. Serious question Dennis…

    Do you ever get tired of people coming up to you and saying: “Two minutes for looking so good.”?

  3. Yes Danno. I also get tired of beautiful models trying to get locks of my hair. PS Love that Rocket commercial.
