    Good story. I think that's the first time that I've seen a story where a T.C. woman taught someone to skate and her name was not Diane Ness.

    Sue truly was great with her students, and certainly deserved her celebrity moment. After moving away I fell out-of-touch with her, but to the best of my knowledge she didn't make teaching skating a career. So she wouldn't have been in "competition" with more noteworthy instructors.

    The story has to date back to the 1950's as Orr joined the Bruins for the 1966–67 season. I think he knew how to skate by then!

    Well, if we're splitting hairs, "taught Bobby Orr how to teach skating" would be more accurate. But from a literary perspective, I thought my punch line had more punch.

It doesn’t feel good after the fact to have countered a posted outrage with my own vituperation. What’s done is done, but I need to clear the air a bit.

    I'll add a celebrity story to the list that's already here although this did not happen to me. It happened to a Realtor from Kenora that I know. He told me the story about 20 years ago or so and it occurred 2 or 3 years before that.

    Winter, who knows?...25-30 below?, he's out on his snowmobile on Lake of the Woods heading home with night falling, as I recall. Off in the distance he noticed another snowmobile and although their paths weren't going to cross or pass each other the distance between them decreased to the point that he noticed that there was a couple on the other snowmobile and that they were trying to flag him down, waving their arms trying to get his attention. He altered course and headed over to them. When he got to them he asked them what the problem was and how he could help. They told him that they were staying at cottage on the lake (possibly on an island) and that they had gone out on the snowmobile and were wanting to head back but had gotten disoriented and were lost. They had no idea where they were.

    He asked them where they were staying. They tried to explain, in vain. He then asked them who the owner was of the cottage that they were staying at and they told him. Turned out the Realtor knew the owner (might have been one of his clients), he told them so and that he knew where the cottage was. The couple asked him for directions. He told them that he could give them directions but that it was complicated due to all the islands and that the safest solution was for them to follow him back to the cottage where they were staying...he had the time and was willing to do that for them.

    So, off the two snowmobiles went.

    When they arrived at their destination the couple, out of gratitude, invited the Realtor in to the cottage for some hot chocolate. He accepted their invitation.

    When they got inside and the head gear came off he realized that the couple whom he had just rescued from a freezing night on Lake of the Woods was Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.

    At the time they were apparently contemplating buying a cottage on LOW and that was one of the reasons that they were staying there at the time...checking things out.

    Turns out they ended up buying in the Gravenhurst lakes district north of Toronto.

    He's got a story to tell his grandchildren.

    You're good.

    Although I did have to modify one of my posts as a result. You can't have a transition sentence when there's nothing to transition from!

    The thread now reads just fine. All is well.

    Fahrenheit or Centigrade?

    Great story; thanks for posting.

    lol I completely missed that. I think you caught me hanging out with my ego. You’re right about Harvard. TBD the next few weeks, big time!

    Already "covered" by FHF, which is exactly what I missed.

    It’s all good! Appreciated and understood your comment. We all have our less than our best moments, or at least I do. Bottom line is this the best source of women’s hockey talk on the web that I am aware of, and it’s also a welcoming, respectful community. Can’t beat it.

    Since this is the poll thread, some observations:
    Lakers deserve some votes, even if not yet ranked, as they sit at 7-2-1.
    Minnesota is surely the new number 1.
    Gotta respect OSU’s win over Minnesota, and sweep of Bemidji on the road. Not sure having Clarkson ranked very far ahead of OSU makes sense. As others have alluded to - the upcoming UMD OSU series should be great.

    I was wondering if you missed the link... The quality on those remastered Who videos is really good.

    Had to share this story;
    I was talking to a former player a while back about crazy stuff that goes on and he gave me this gem;
    Leading up to the 1984 Olympics the team played a bunch of exhibition games. They were in Alaska
    when they received their stipend. Different players do different things with their money like we all think they would. There was one particular player, that I will not name, (but I’m sure you could figure it out by looking at the roster) that went a bit too far.
    The team had breakfast the next morning and the player did not show up. Players and coaches started asking each other where he was. They checked his room…nothing. Called the hospitals in case he was injured overnight…nothing. They then called the police and found him locked up.

    When some players went to bail him out he told them what had happened.
    He ended up with 2 hookers in a hotel room. They rolled him, taking his money and running. When he finally figured it out he was ****ed. He ran out in the street looking for them in his underwear…just as a police car rolled up to him.
    They squashed it once they knew who he was. He never got the money back.
    I will not confirm nor deny any name.

    Re: USCHO Poster Poll: '19-'20

    I wasn’t going to say anything else but apparently this thread is no longer about the team ranking, so I will, I am finding it ironic that my words were found offensive by someone who posts a story about a hockey player I guess she thinks highly of, yet if you were to Google his name the word “rape” and just to make sure it isn’t fake news “Minnesota supreme court” that will direct you to their website you will find out he makes Donald Trump look like a feminist.
    But then, like Bill Clinton and every other liberal politician caught with his pants down, she’ll probably make excuses for him.
