Fischler Still Working

from Neil Best at Newsday,

It should be noted here that Fischler is 75, has authored more than 90 books on the sport and has been attending pro games in New York since Gretzky was an infant - Walter Gretzky, Wayne’s father.
Yet there he was, all over MSG’s 75-minute postgame. First he worked the crowded locker room with microphone in hand. Later he called the officiating “dreadful” and told a story about Bill Barilko’s Stanley Cup-winning goal for the Maple Leafs in 1951. (He picked it up on the radio from Canada.)
How and why is he still at it? The how is a credit to the paddle handball games that keep him fit. As for why: “I love what I’m doing. My passion for hockey is what it was when Bill Barilko scored that goal in ‘51.”
