Hi everyone! It’s Inauguration Day in the U.S. of A. and that means it is, of course, the day that will be forever etched in our children’s and grandchildren’s memory banks as the moment the only man more obsessed with “gold” than Charlie Finley took the oath of the highest office in the country. As you know, old Charlie loved the colour gold so much he dressed all of his sports teams in it. At one time, the Seals, Oakland A’s and ABA basketball footnotes, the Memphis Tams, all wore more gold than in the 45th President’s wildest dreams. Yes, to celebrate the Donald’s love of all things “gold”, we have a couple new things to share that have a Trumpish theme. For those of you who consider the Prez “krazy” we got for you an awesome article about legendary Seals cheerleader Krazy George Henderson, which was published in Goal magazine back in October 1974.
Also, to commemorate the soon-to-be-45-year-old Jaromir Jagr moving into second place on the NHL’s all-time scoring list, we present you with a whole whack of Jagr cards from throughout his career. Having played in the league for the better part of three decades, the poor guy has seen trends come and go, and he has been the victim of several card companies’ misguided attempts at producing cool-looking hockey cards, and now for your viewing pleasure, we present you “Jaromir Jagr: a life in cardboard,” and this expo can be found in the Overexposed wing of the Hockey Hall of Shame.
In case you haven’t got around to it, don’t forget to vote for the player you feel should be inducted into the Seals Hall of Fame in 2017. Profiles of all ten candidates have been added to the 2017 Hall of Fame Nominees page to help you make your decision. You can vote as many times as you want, but only once per device, and you can write in your own choice, if you like. And if you enjoy reading the regular updates to this site, Hall of Shame entries, articles, etc., you can also subscribe to this website by writing down your e-mail address on the right side of this page. I promise you won’t get bombarded with annoying e-mails fourteen times a day, but just one annoying e-mail a week letting you know what’s shaking on the site.
Until next time, stay gold!
