A Moment Of Silence

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Sad news from the world of Canadian broadcasting today - Pat Marsden, Canada's most controversial sports broadcaster passed away at the age of 69, after a battle with lung cancer. Marsden will always be remembered for being outspoken, brash, opinionated and cantankerous - but most of all a regular guy who loved sports and was never awestruck by those he was covering. I am sure that Hazel knows who Pat Marsden is, she probably had the opportunity to bump into the old guy, and probably has a story or two as well.

In other sad news from this past weekend, former Maple Leafs owner Steve Stavro passed away on Sunday. Stavro will have a special place in the hearts of every member of Leaf Nation who remembers what the Maple Leafs were like under Harold Ballard (though we may have been too young to know how bad things really were - I would include Hazel in that group). Stavro rescued a team that had been pretty bad for years and turned the Leafs into a 1st class organization and almost won a Stanley Cup for the city of Toronto.

Short post tonight...Have a good one peeps.

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world...enjoy your weekend.
