So long Boom Boom
Most of the readers of this blog will equate me as a Canucks fan, Vancouver being my new home. My orignial home, however, est ma ville, Montreal. For hockey, I am conflicted on one game per season, Vancouver vs. Montreal, and in the rare occasion that Vancouver may play Montreal in the Cup final.
As such, being a Habs fan, I am saddened to hear of the passing of Bernard "Boom Boom" Geoffrion. He was the second player to score 50 goals in a season (teammate Maurice "Rocket" Richard being the first), won six Stanley Cups avec les Habitents, and amassed 393 goals, 429 assists, and 689 penalty minutes in 883 games. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972.
My condolences go to his family and friends, Montreal alumni, and the faithful fans of the Habs. Keep his spirit alive.
To you from failing hands we throw the torch. Be yours to hold it high.
