Senior Parachute Club
Yesterday, my daughter Kelli emailed me, asking why I didn’t do something useful with my time.
“Like playing hockey and umpiring little league baseball isn’t a good thing?” I asked.  Talking about my “doing something useful” seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.
She is “only thinking of me,” she said and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the fellas.
So, I did and when I got home, I decided to play a prank on her.
I sent her an email saying that I had joined the Senior Parachute Club.  She replied, “Are you nuts?  You’re almost 70-years-old and now you’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”
I told her that I even had a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.  Immediately, she telephoned me and yelled; “Good grief, Dad, where are your glasses?!  This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”
“Oh man, am I in trouble?”  I said; “I signed up and prepaid for five jumps a week!  …THE LINE WENT DEAD.
Life as a Senior Citizen may not be getting any easier, but it can be fun.
FLYERS    3    HAWKS   2
The Flyers play an overall strong game and defeat the formidable Hawks!  Keith Foucher, Ryan O’Rourke and Jeff Morton dent the twine for the Flyers.  Billy Hagen and Marcin Niecalek score for the Hawks.  Both puck stoppers – Bobby Rutkoske of the Flyers and Tommy Gazley of the Hawks with strong games!  This was a penalty free game.
HABS   3    SHARKS   0
“Sugar” John Marchin stands on his proverbial head and sends the Habs to the shutout victory!  Jimmy “Boog” Powell with a two goal game.  Winger Adam Godard with their middle marker.  No Sharks sightings in this game.
WINGS   5    BRUINS   2
Newly married Wings left defenseman Captain Howard Smith blasts a bomb from the point 58 ticks into the game to get the party started for the Wings!  Sub Mike Garlick with the deuce.  Singles for Curt Lesnau and Sammy “The Bull” Bonanno.  Sub goaler Rick ‘Ticker” Chauvin with a very solid game in nets!  Steve Lemieux and sub defenseman “Black” Jack Priaux with the Bruins goals.
FLYERS   2      HABS   0
The Flyers once again play a strong disciplined game for the sweep!  Bobby Rutkoske adds to his burgeoning career shutout total!  As in game one – Keith Foucher and Ryan O’Rourke find the back of the net, as the Flyers are now undefeated in their past three doubleheaders.  No Habs highlights in this penalty free game.
WINGS    6     SHARKS   3
The Wings dominate this contest as sub Mike Garlick records the trick!  Singles for Curt Lesnau, Sammy Bonanno and sub Todd Schurman, as the Wings sweep on the day.  Eddie “The Eagle” Higgins with the hat trick assist.  Doug “Jeff” Beck scores his first of two goals on a 90 footer 25 seconds into the contest.  Bruce Gooel with the Sharks middle marker as they drop a deuce today.  Special mention for Sharks goalie Brian Miller, who saw a ton of shots this game!
HAWKS   2     BRUINS   2
An up and down entertaining contest as both goalies Tommy Gazley of the Hawks and sub Superman of the Bruins put on a show for the one person in attendance.  Billy Hagen and Mark Smyth score for the Hawks, who are winless in their past three games but still enjoy a four point lead atop the standings.  Dr. Keri Topouzian and Dougie Rohel with the Bruins goals, who are winless in their past six games.  John “The Little Ball of Hate” Perini picks up a solo roughing minor penalty.
In the 2003 season, the Detroit Red Wings had a very successful line called “Two Kids and an Old Goat”.
Who comprised that line?
Old Goat – Brett Hull
Two Kids – Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg.
Bonus question!
In 2002, who was the original member of that line that Zetterberg replaced?
Boyd Devereaux.
