The Ottawa Pledge
Posted May 30, 2007
I'm just listening to Chuck Swirsky on the Fan590, and I hear about this pledge that Toronto's Mayor David Miller, Vancouver's Mayor Sam Sullivan, and Calgary's Mayor Dave Bronconnier, is creating to make Leaf fans, Canucks fans, and Flames fans root for the Senators during this Stanley Cup Finals.
This is absolutely ridiculous! If your a fan of the Leafs you are NOT rooting for the Sens not ma... Read More »
When I was first hired by the HHOF last summer, the first question I asked was "Will I be working Induction Night?". Thats where I was told all employees work that night. Since then, that was the one night I was looking forward to. However, Induction night wasn't till November 13th, so I still had 2 and a half months to get my feet wet there.
So as I got more experience at the Hall, I heard all... Read More »
The most frequently question I get when I'm up in the Great Hall with the Cup is:
[quote]Is that the "Real" Stanley Cup or what?[/quote]
So I'm going to answer it here for you because this is a little known fact within the hockey world. The thing is there are 3 official Stanley Cups. There is the original bowl, which Lord Stanley himself bought and donated to hockey back in 1893 for $50. The... Read More »
During my time at the Hockey Hall of Fame, I usually spend at least 2 hours a day upstairs in the Great Hall with the Stanley Cup. On a slow day, I'm usually completely alone with the great trophy. During this time I think to myself "I am really lucky, I'm right now alone with the most prestiges trophy in the world for about an hour."

Best Hockey MemoriesGoing to Maple Leaf Gardens for the first time, knowing nothing about hockey at the time, and realizing who the best player on the ice was, Doug Gilmour.Other than that, any time I'm actually able to go to a Leaf game is an enjoyable event, win or lose.
As a hockey player, I compare to...I never actually was able to play organized hockey, I got into the sport too late. However, if I wanted to picture myself as a hockey player I'd see myself that is fiery like Rocket Richard, has the skills of Wayne Gretzky, has leadership skills like Mark Messier, and has the heart like Steve Yzerman. Even if that isn't me, I just described the ultimate hockey player.
