from Bob Duff of the Wndsor Star,
“Our second night in Kandahar, they took us over to see the spy planes,” Probert said. “We were in the one of the rooms getting briefed on the spy planes and all of a sudden the sirens start going off.”
“They came in an escorted us right to the bomb shelter. The bunker, they called it.”
While there, Probert looked around at his fellow retired NHLers and spied Dan Daoust, Mike Pelyk, Lou Franceschetti, Dave Hutchison, Dave (Tiger) Williams and Kevin Maguire, all of them former Toronto Maple Leafs and decided to add a little levity to a tense situation.
“I said, ‘Apparently, they found out the Maple Leafs were here,’” Probert said. “That didn’t go over too well.”
