Maple Leaf Gardens was a one of the great hockey cathedrals and a memorable experience for a kid in the 1960s. Men in overcoats and hats, smoking and drinking in the frigid stands. The restroom didn't have urinals, so you peed into a long cast iron trough alongside everyone else.I did not realize he began career that early. My dad did his residency at Henry Ford in the mid-'60's & we had season tickets at the Olympia. Horton, Frank Mahavolich, Terry Sawchuk & Dave Keon are the Leafs I remember.
Watching live hockey is an entirely different experience compared to TV - we moved to NY area in the late '60's and I got excited about my new team, the Rangers. No season tickets but my dad reassured me w/ the fact that channel 9 broadcast their games - sadly, I soon discovered that televised hockey (especially 1960's technology on a small b&w set) was not the same thing, at all...
Nothing matched listening to Hockey Night in Canada on the radio. It unified the country as much as anything.Pre-HD televised hockey was ass.
If you turned your head slightly to the left and squinted, you could make out boobs.are you guys saying you've never known the thrill of straining eyeball and mind to perceive soft-core through the veil of snow and scramble ?
Upstate NY.Very cool. I've been in some old farm houses where they'd laid rope between floor boards. What part of the world is your place in?
I'm going to try to quarter saw most of the flooring (grain direction at a right angle to the boards' surfaces), which should result in boards that shrink a lot less. If they're still not dry enough to use next winter, I'll borrow some space in a friend's solar kiln. I hope to do the wood shop floor using green wood in the Korean style. That's a cool way to make a floor.
My older brother took me to see Rage Against the Machine, Gang Starr and At The Drive In there in 99. Hell of a show.Maple Leaf Gardens was a one of the great hockey cathedrals and a memorable experience for a kid in the 1960s. Men in overcoats and hats, smoking and drinking in the frigid stands.

And the place for Game 2 of the Summit Series.
I saw Jethro Tull there in '72, Genesis in '74, Supertramp in '76, Blue Oyster Cult in '78.
Now it's a fucking Loblaws.
The troughs at the Gardens were enameled cast iron so you can imagine what decades of beer piss did to them.My older brother took me to see Rage Against the Machine, Gang Starr and At The Drive In there in 99. Hell of a show.
I got to witness the communal trough washrooms a few years later at Michigan Stadium. It's a, uh, unique experience seeing the steam rising off everyone's urine on a cold gameday.
