Cutting Humanities Class

I remember the day well. I was 18 or 19 and was attending Sir John Abbot College in Montreal. The teachers knew it was a big deal, so they just said watch the game. I believe I cut Humanities class. I was one of many, sprawled out over the big common room in the library.They rolled the TV into the common room lobby. There was a lot of tension leading up to the goal and I’ll never forget the cheering once Paul Henderson scored!
