I <3 Gordie, Part 134

So Gordie Howe is interviewed in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix last week, and he's asked about how his Wings team would do against the current one. A pretty standard question. But it's his response to this question that reminds me why I love Howe:

The SP: Would you put up with Tomas Holmstrom being in your goalie's face all night?

Howe: Nope. He'd be wearing tape on his head. (Laughs)

Don't ever change, Mr. Howe.

(p.s. I have my own story on meeting Gordie Howe. Another day.)
