My 1972 Story

I was working for the TD Bank at the time in London, ON. Since the TD Bank was a sponsor of the event, Head Office urged each branch to contact a local TV Store (hopefully a customer) to see if they would place a TV in the branch to show the games. They also insisted that the TV Store sign a waiver so that the bank would have no responsibility for any damage. (Were they thinking that an irate fan might get mad at the TV?) I made a deal with the women at the bank that I worked with. I would handle all of the customer inquiries at the counter up until game time, then it was there turn while I watched the games. A good arrangement if I do say so myself!
