#9 Turns 87 Tomorrow

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

Last week, he went out with some people close to him, including his son, who is in the Hockey Hall of Fame, for a pastime Howe carried with him from his childhood in Saskatchewan.

He went fishing.

"I was down there last week," said Mark Howe, the director of pro scouting for the Red Wings, whose career as a defenseman put him in the Hall of Fame in Toronto with his father.

"We took him out catfishing a couple of days on a couple of ponds and did some walks and everyday things. Overall, he did pretty well."...

"My brother Murray and I were there last week," Howe said. "I had four days with him. He did pretty well when I was there.

"This week, my brother Marty's down there, and he struggled a little bit more this week. But I guess he's doing a little bit better today."

The story by Kruppa was probably meant for tomorrow, which is Gordie Howe's 87th birthday.
