Mr Hockey: The Official Autobiography Of Gordie Howe - Kindle

Found 13th Jun 2016
Mr Hockey himself, Mr Gordie Howe passed away this weekend and i was just looking to buy his Autobiography.

If you don't know who he is and you should, have you seen the Simpsons?, remember that episode With Mr Woodrow? No? Well it was the one where Bart read a Dating Ad from Miss Krabappel, and played a prank on her, he wrote her love letters and Gordie Howe did the Voice over for the prank letters as the Charachter Mr Woodrow, so now you know.

From Amazons Description of the man himself

"Ask Bobby Orr who was the best ever, and he’ll tell you it was Gordie Howe. Ask Wayne Gretzky, and he’ll say the same thing. Big, skilled, mean, and nearly indestructible, Howe dominated the game and the record books for decades. Today he is still known as “Mr. Hockey,” and any bruising forward who can be relied upon to take his team on his shoulders hopes to be compared with the guy who wore number 9 for Detroit for so many years."
But the fact is, there will never be another like Mr. Hockey. Certainly, no one has come close to matching his incredible twenty consecutive seasons among the top five scorers in the NHL. No one has come close to scoring 100 points after the age of forty. It seems impossible that anyone will ever again play for Team Canada against the Russians while sharing the ice with his two sons. What seems even less likely is that another player will suit up as a professional hockey player in six different decades."
even though I am a Pittsburgh Penguins fan, i still have respect for Mr Howe.

Sad indeed, just goes to show how folks are nonplussed when it comes to anything hockey related, even a free book from the best player ever can't get some heat.

Dundee Stars fan.
