For today’s Badurday choice we’ll be taking a step away from the men of film and television and talking about the men of hockey. I’ve been a hockey fan for many years. Loved to watch the games on television and in person when I could. I adore The Great One, Gretsky, who said “you miss 100% of the shots you never take” which is a good mantra for writers.
The men of hockey can be really bad. They like to fight on the ice and get stuck in the penalty box on occasion! There is a song called 100 Years by Five for Fighting. That’s the stage name of a singer named Vladimir Ondrasik. He got it for the hockey term. The five minutes for fighting is the longest penalty period in hockey- other than getting sent to the locker room for the duration! Most penalties are for two minutes. You gotta be a real tough fighter to get the five minutes. I was proud of myself for knowing this little tidbit when the guy came on the scene. LOL!
I’ve chosen a couple of still pictures of hockey players, a video of some hot players and a video of 100 Years, the song.
The next 2 weeks on Badurday, we will be having guest posters- I’m excited about what they are going to share. Til then, as Casey Kasem says, “keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.”
