Quote of the Year

The Hockey News had an interesting article on Bruce Bennet, Getty Images Director of Photography and Hockey Imagery, which contained, hands down, the quote of the year. Of course, the quote was from some time in the early 70's but nonetheless, it stands the test of time.

Embarrassing Career Memory: "Got hit by Carol Vadnais, also at Madison Square Garden. As I rolled around the floor of the penalty box trying to catch my breath, looking up at that distinctive MSG ceiling, two heads popped over the boards looking down on me. Linesman Leon Stickle said, ‘Hey Bruce, the girl in the front row wants to know if your date is still on tonight.’ Linesman Ray Scapinello said, ‘Try to fart. If you can fart it means you’re OK.’ "
Words to live by Ray, words to live by.
