MR. HOCKEY TURNS 88
Happy 88th birthday to hockey icon Gordie Howe, who was born on March 31, 1928, in Floral, Saskatchewan.
"Hockey quickly became all I thought about, filling almost every waking hour I wasn't in school. I still feel that joy now when I lace up a pair of skates and step out onto the ice."
The above quote came from Gordie Howe - My Hockey Memories, which was published in 1999.
Howe was looking back to when he received his first pair of blades at the age of five.
