Today Gordie Howe
celebrates his 78th birthday! His teamates called him 'Popeye' because of his huge forearms and for me he was always bigger than life. How about some words of wisdom from Gordie?
-All hockey players are bilingual. They know English and profanity.
-You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave - win or lose.
-You've got to love what you're doing. If you love it, you can overcome any handicap or the soreness or all the aches and pains, and continue to play for a long, long time.
, via NHL.com, Doc Emrick pays tribute
(will open wmp audio) to Gordie in his weekly audio review.
