Hi everyone! Yes, it’s true, after a long hiatus, there finally is a brand new induction to the Hockey Hall of Shame this week. I have been collecting ideas for future inductions for a while, but haven’t had the time to actually write anything because of my busy home, work, and book promotion schedule, but I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel, which means I should be able to get back to doing what I love most: mocking stupid, stupid things that have flown under the radar for lo so many years. This week, Golden Seals Hockey presents the 1990 Team Canada World Women’s Hockey Championship uniforms, quite possibly the most insultingly awful uniforms in sports history. I always remembered seeing the odd clip of this tournament on sports shows featuring great goals, and thinking how putrid these uniforms looked. They just didn’t say ANYTHING about Canada, and you’ll see why this week.
Also new this week is another Overexposed beauty, this time featuring Minnesota North Star Claude Larose, and a little connection to a notorious California Golden Seals owner. Hint: it’s the dude who came up with the “Golden Seals” moniker.
Don’t forget to cast your votes for the 2018 Seals Hall of Fame. The survey is on the right side of the screen, and you can vote up to three times per device.
Thanks again to everyone who has gone out and bought a copy of my book. If you haven’t done so already, please leave some feedback somewhere on the Interweb, whether it is on Amazon, Library Thing, Goodreads, or some other site. Feedback will only drive up sales, and will get me one step closer to getting that Porsche or maybe a speedboat if I have some change leftover.
Until next time, stay gold!
