A Sad Day For Hockey

I was rushing around last night getting ready for my trip to California today where I will hook up with some of my Mastermind Group at the Fitness Business Summit. I had to be on the road at 4:30am to make it to the airport in Detroit with time to spare since you never know what you will run into at the border or with Detroit traffic.

Anyway, I decided to watch a little of the Leafs vs. Sens game before bed (go Leafs GO!) and I heard the sad news – Stompin’ Tom Connors had died at age 77.

If you live or have ever lived in Canada, you will know Stompin’ Tom. If you are from other parts of the world, I am not sure if you know him, but this song below could be a citizenship test for any true Canuck. If you can sing along, you are Canadian, if not – – get OUT!

I remember watching on TV the night they closed the Maple Leaf Gardens and Stompin’ Tom came out to do his thing – complete with his little 18″ square of plywood that he set on the ice for ‘stompin’. A true legend.

I will swing by later in the week with the Q&A I had planned for today, but for now have a listen if you have never heard “The Hockey Song” by Stompin’ Tom – feel free to share you memories of this song below.

Have a great day all.
