Goodbye Gordie

Document (13)

For years your picture hung on my bedroom wall
In my bookcase, your hockey instruction book
On my record stand, the song they wrote about you
In my drawer, your autograph
In my memory, so much
Goal 544, when you busted the Rocket’s mark
I got out my Brownie to record the event on the TV
Goal 600, sitting with my grandfather in the Montreal Forum
The crowd went wild
For the incomparable
Gordie Howe

    What a wonderful tribute to a hockey hero!

  2. Thank you for the Gordie Howe bit. I went to Wikipedia and read everything they had on him. I grew up in Norway, and did some modest skating, but wasn’t aware of any of the stuff in Canada or the States. I am now most humbly enlightened as to the greatness of this man.

    I thought of you when I heard. Nice tribute.
