Shawminade Catholic School Memory

I was attending Shawminade Catholic School in Toronto. I was in grade 10 at the time. There were about 320 students who watched the game either in the gymnasium or cafeteria. I remember there were 6 Black and white TV’s with rabbit ears on stand across the gym. My team was and still is the Toronto maple Leafs. I also cheered for Bobby Clarke.

I remember a lot of hootin and hollerin when Alan Eagleson crossed the ice in Game 8. Later when Henderson scored we all jumped up and down.

After that they basically let us go and I went downtown to witness the celebrations. At the end of the day I was emotionally burnt out from the day.
