    Derek Sanderson thought he had a relapse when he woke up and turned the TV on and Ask The Manager was on....He was in Winnipeg.

    TV38 to this day is seen on most Canadian cable outlets

    Ha! Bless you, Fens.

    Remember the time that guy called in after a Sox game, and opined that Lou Gorman must be a "very good dancer"? (Not strictly ATM, but hey.) Or, Sean reading a viewer letter referring to "the dopey bald guy"? Great good fun.

    It wasn't on for very long but I remember a sports round table hosted by Upton Bell, he had Boston tv sports & print reporters on and they would discuss the local teams. I really enjoyed it.

    Sports Beat, I believe (replete with dinky opening theme music). I enjoyed its modest charms, too.

    If HF had existed in 1971 - How do you think the board would have reacted to losing a Bruins telecast to a moon launch ( BTW Bobby scored his 100th goal that day - lost forever )

    In addition to being a Bruins fanatic I'm also a space freak so either way I would have been good with it. Actually a slight edge to the launch- there were far fewer of them than hockey games!

    Slight correction Fen, THE Don Awrey :DD

    He was my favorite player when I was a kid. Then Milbury came along and wore his number :whatever:

    Ed Note: Any further 60s/70s pix of this quality, please to post.

    Also, if you've never seen it, there was a great book, simply titled "Hockey," with fab pix from that era. The cover features a prone Bobby Hull, nose literally on the ice, while an "inset" inside (sic) shows how the unhappy altercation developed. Unhappy for the Golden Jet.

    Just an amazing photo. The lighting & angles for photography in that day was incredible and the Garden looks amazing in the background. The Day scoreboard was almost as synonymous with the Garden in its last quarter-century as the second balcony gallery (when did the word "HOME" get replaced with "BOSTON" on the scoreboard?).

Whatever umbrage is i took it and tore around the streets looking for a phone booth to correct him. After that failure i came home and listened to The Ventures and "Nutty" . Hang on Sloopy THAT'S THE REAL MCCOY! Bomp,bomp bass,rat-a-tat drums,tinge of keyboard and that twang surf guitar! Now to find me a phone booth!

    Look at how small goalies look compared to today- wow!

    I miss hearing this song, after all these years. The NESN one is meh.

    Seeing Dallas Smith brings back comical moments for me. As a kid, I used to confuse him and Rick Smith- I don't know why, because they look nothing alike. :laugh:

    Fenway, you know what would make this thread complete? Peter the Puck! I never knew that Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees was one of the voices for Peter the Puck. He was my favorite Monkee. :Dhttps://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2013/06/08/nhl-mascot-peter-puck-has-left-rink/ix7mlHJHpHmRM6mZzLgqaP/story.html
