Last night I actually told my friend who is related to him. He hadn't even heard yet. Said he's just been in terrible shape recently. My buddy knows nothing about hockey. You should see the memorabilia he has all signed by Gordie. He was kind enough to get me two photos signed by Gordie, Mark & Marty.
Notice my profile picture. He was very nice when I met him. Sat in my chair!
I drooled looking at his #9 Howe Stanley Cup ring he was wearing. Don't know which one it was for.
