Here’s Hockey!

Yes, this has nothing to do with Personal Finance or Banking or the like, but I like this video from the NFB. Here’s Hockey talks about an earlier day when kids played hockey without helmets or cages, and we played outside and maybe a more naive time.

I remember playing outside, with my Dad standing there freezing himself solid and then having to listen to me complain about how cold I was after the game was played. The only thing that kept him warm was his cigarette!

I love this clip. It has Jean Beliveau and Dick Irvine, the coach.

Listen to the size of the NHL. It’s a $6M business (how much are the Senators on sale for?). Skates that are LUDICROUSLY expensive at $50 a pair, a simpler time, that is for sure.
