The Malik Report

According to the Financial Post’s Eric Lam, Red Wings legend Gordie Howe made an appearance at the “Prospects and Developers Association of Canada‘s” convention in Toronto earlier this afternoon, and Howe’s son and co-business manager, Marty Howe, had this to say about his father’s continued participation in promotional appearances:
“He loves being in public, dealing with people. This is what keeps him going,” Marty Howe said. “Ever since my mom passed away, these things are more important than ever to keep him in the public and keep his mind off things he shouldn’t be thinking about. He really enjoys being out here, and when people talk to him they realize how genuine he is.”
Marty Howe is the older brother of Mark Howe, and played with the Boston Bruins and Hartford Whalers of the NHL. In total, Gordie Howe spent more than two hours signing free autographs and posing for photos.
“We started off with a stack of 300 photos and it looks like we’re just about out,” Marty Howe said.
