The Mechanical Room

In 1972 I was working as a Property Manager for Manulife at Calgary House. We had a radio in the office, and listened to every game but couldn’t get reception for a television. On the last game day, one of our maintenance people went up on the roof, climbed up a little ladder to the parapet wall and hooked a T.V. Antenna to the highest point in the building. He then hooked up a black and white T.V. In the mechanical room. There we sat, most of the Manulife staff, several (selected) tenants and a lot of very big heating, air conditioning and mechanical equipment. We thought we were the smartest guys in town.

We went pretty crazy at the end when Henderson scored that goal.
