I met Gordie Howe at Christmas time 1992, when he was doing an autographing session for my employer, Gartlan, USA. For all the legend about him being a hard guy on the ice, Gordie was the nicest “grandpa” like man I have ever met. That night, Gordie gave me my first hockey lesson, and I have a picture of me trying humorously to check him with an elbow. The next day Gordie signed it with something like “…no way!” That picture is locked away in my home safe…I will post it when I can.

I also had the pleasure of meeting Gordie on a couple of occasions. He asked me to have lunch with him one day after I told him that I was with Bobby Orr @ his celebrity golf tournament a few weeks before. Gordie said his sons worshipped Bobby Orr and asked me to tell him everything about Bobby and his recent knee surgery. I still have the picture on my wall of that great day I had lunch with #9.
