Fond Memories

I have very fond memories of the ’72 hockey game between Russia and Canada. Norm and I were watching the game and broke into cheering and screaming when Paul Henderson scored the winning goal. Jamie was just a little over 3 and a 1/2 months old and I had purchased a Russia/Canada hockey pennant which proudly hung on his bedroom wall for many years. I’m sure the pennant is long gone but the memory will last forever of that wonderful goal and game.
