I always envied pals Jim Matheson and Rod Phillips for all the years they had the opportunity to ply their trade covering Wayne Gretzky and those magnificent Edmonton Oilers teams of the 1980s.

On a day that will eventually become a National Holiday in Canada - we celebrate Gretzmas as invented by Citizen Charlie F of Lethbridge and his crew of Oilers Fans.

I wonder what happened to the kids from this picture? The one without the hat went on to be the greatest player the NHL had ever seen, and today somewhere he will be celebrating his 50th birthday.

Happy 50th to the kid in this photo. And thanks. For everything. I wouldn't have believed it unless I was there to see it.

This is Dick Pole - an actual pitcher for the Bo Sox in the 1970s.
Hopefully you are having a good laugh at ol' Dickie Pole's expense right now because there is other - less funny - news to pass along. Ales Hemsky and Jordan Eberle are both bowing out of the All Star Game on account of injuries.
