Tuesday's Corrie


There was no corrie yesterday, because apparantly the Edmonton Oilers won the Grey Cup - or summit like that.

Jacqueline,

Very funny!

I must speak up in defense of Steve Yzerman - it was a GREAT ceremony, and even though they pre-empted Corrie, I was kind of glad they did, because it was a night in a million. What a great guy. What a class act.

What a tribute to him that they got so many former teammates and coaches to show up. And I cried when Vladimir Konstantinov appeared.

I will miss watching Stevie Y play.

Go Wings!

PS: I will be glad to get back to Corrie tonight though! Double episode!

Double episode!? Who knew? Tks for the info.

I ended up taping a special about Ted Nolan on CBC last night, which while good, was an hour long. I taped for a half hour of Corrie. Yeah...

Watched about a half hour of the Yzerman ceremony.

Loved seeing Gordie Howe. I have a picture of him and mistermac taken at a hockey banquet in the early 60s when mistermac was about 5-years-old.

In the photo Mistermac is so excited to be standing next to the god known as Howe that his eyes are about 8 feet wide with excitement!

I'm a hockey fan and have always admired Steve Y - he is indeed a class act - but an hour and a half???!

As for Ms. Glacia's comment about the Edmonton Oilers winning the Grey Cup - there's more chance of that than the Maple Leafs winning the Stanley Cup ;-)

Back to Corrie - am much looking forward to seeing how Norris gets on with looking for love (or at least some naughty nookie!). And speaking of sports/Corrie - remember how Jim MacDonald used to regularly wear Blue Jays shirts? That was a very nice touch by the Corrie wardrobe folk and would be nice to see them do something like that again - hmmmm, am thinking of Frankie in a Habs shirt for some reason...

When I lived in Windsor I used to pretend to be Stevie Y to finagle a free drink from the dim american girls from across the river.

Now I pretend to be Jack Duckworth.

I am in no way inferring that all american girls are dim. Far from it. Just the ones who believed I was Stevie Y.

For example Michigander Fan seems a delightful damsel.

You can find Maple leafs jerseys for sale in Carnaby Street in London.

I am imagining Frankie out of a Habs shirt for another reason.

The Big Seester said...

Well, an hour and a half was a little long. I was honestly expecting 10-15 minutes, but wow! I cannot believe how many people they got to show up!

Even Bob Probert, God love him.

I grew up on Red Wing Hockey - my dad remembers seeing the Production Line at the old Olympia, so it was really cool to see Gordie, Alex and Terrible Ted.

And Papa, ROTFL!!! "Now I pretend to be Jack Duckworth." HI-larious! And thanks for the compliment - I don't know how delightful I am, but I'm quite sure I would recognize Steve Yzerman if he walked up to me.

Then I would faint, and he would trip over me.

Grin.

Alasdair,

I agree. I'm trying to picture the Grumpy Old Lady that would have Norris, though.

You didn't used to appear on You Can't Do That on Television, did you?

The Leafs cannot be as bad at hockey as the Lions are at football.

Hey Big Seester

Ummmm - nope, have never appeared on that television show. My tv appearances have been restricted to Reach For The Top in the 1970s and a documentary done on my black bear study in Labrador in the early 1990s. I guess the latter could have been called "You Shouldn't Do That on Television"

Papa - glad we at least agree on Frankie and a Habs shirt, although I'd tend to agree with you on your thoughts as well.

Yeah, the Lions are worse than the Leafs. This year.
