Happy anniversary Paul Henderson and the Goal of the Century

Postby Mookie4ever » Fri Sep 28, 2007 10:13 am

35 years ago today Paul Henderson scored the goal of the century and the Canadians.

In the first ever series between Canada and the USSR, at the height of the Cold War, in Moscow, with one of their managers being restrained by Russian police, Henderson scored with 34 seconds left to give Team Canada the win.

I know that Mookie is old and probably watched that as a senior in high school, but aren't you in college? How would you know it was the greatest moment ever? ;-7

We've been taught as much throughout our lives. A huge moment in Canadian culture. Do you have a problem with me saying that?

And Mookie is 53? I'd always thought he was in his late 30s or early 40s.
