Does anybody remember the film "Slap Shot?" I ran across a Trailer on UTUBE that brought back the Hockey Mania in Boston in the 60's and 70's.
In those days you could always get tickets to the Celtics but the Bruins were always sold out. My cousin was a Gallery God, we always got in along with an ample supply of beer from the packy across the street.
The most interesting thing I saw were the women in the crowd calling for blood during a brawl, common in the old days, reminded me of Rome.
The movie reflected alot of what I saw in those days.
Iron Man, so called because he caught the splash from an RPG during TET and thus recieved a greyish hue and was a Canadian Frog, with a short temper, we used to say he never met a bullet that didn't like him, 7 PH's. The Post got a New TV.
You’ve got some quality nostalgia going on there FRiend!
loved that movie! one of the best sports movies ever!
Ah yes. The Hanson brothers.....
Old Time Hockey, like Eddie Shore.
My cousin worked with the guy that drove the Zambronie at the Garden and left the door open for us. Good times.
Iron Man after getting hit, while Thumbing, by a bunch of Vet Pals on a drinks expedition, breaking his pelvis, six Months in the Hospital, married a women with a missing front tooth, had five kids and looks old like the rest of us. He still looks Grey and can't do a scanner.
I think Joe McGrath was the inspiration for Jerry Jones:
Johnny Upton: I’m gonna flash them, Joe!
Joe McGrath: Aw jeez, son...
Johnny Upton: Yes I am! I’m gonna walk down that stinkin’ aisle, and open this faggot bathrobe and wiggle my -—k at ‘em!
Joe McGrath: You WILL not.
Johhny Upton: Yes I am, Joe, and you know why? Because I want you to have a heart attack and die so that we never have to do this -—t again. You and your f-—in’ fashion shows.
Joe McGrath: It’s good publicity! You boys just haven’t been bringing in the crowds like you used to.
Johnny Upton: I’m telling you, ya cheap bastard, in about 30 seconds everyone in the crowd, with the exception of MY wife is gonna be running for the exits.
*Ten seconds later.......sounds of women screaming.*
No sissified megabucks sports-dorks in the age of the Hanson Brothers, that’s for sure!
“You think they show Speed Racer here?”
"I'M LISTENING TO THE #$#@ING SONG!"
You know the actor playing the ref that Hanson brother is yelling at in that scene? He died just last month: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Block
In the early 90’s I went to a midnight opening screening of “Dick Tracey” (somebody elase bought the tickets). Sitting next to me in the theatre was the guy who played “Killer Kowalski” in Slapshot. We spent the entire movie talking about Slapshot, much to the annoyance of our neighbors. But nobody told us to shut up. Heh.
“Dave’s a Killer!’
“Dave’s a mess.”
It’s one of my all-time favorite movies!!!
Like “Blazing Saddles,” it couldn’t be made today.
