My silky, knot-tight friendship with Dave Keon: All year lon

Postautor: Angel92 » 9 sty 2018, o 05:34

I'd had a leisurely breakfast of wide-ranging discussion with Dave Keon in October 2016 for a feature story when he was immortalized with a statue on Legends Row at Sterling Shepard Jersey Womens Air Canada Centre. It was a remarkable time for the sparkplug center, his No. 14 jersey retired by the Maple Leafs, the four-time Stanley Cup champion having just been voted the franchise's top player of all time.ObrazekDave and I have spent much more Authentic Ray Bourque Jersey time together this Centennial year at NHL functions in Toronto, Los Angeles, Ottawa and Montreal, seeking each other out. One thing we have in common is our affection for freestyle bow ties, and on New Year's Eve, and most every time we've met since, Dave and I have compared our bows -- Authentic Scottie Upshall Jersey how we knot them, where we shop for them. Generally, we've left his wife, Jane, shaking her head at us.ObrazekDuring the Stanley Cup's Ottawa homecoming event in March, I took a photo of Dave wearing Jason Witten Youth Jersey his St. Patrick's Day-themed bow tie in the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, beside photographer Yousef Karsh's iconic 1941 portrait of glowering bow-tied Winston Churchill.But our relationship found a new place in Montreal on Nov. 18 when I stopped Dave before he was introduced to the Bell Centre crowd for a ceremonial face-off so I could straighten his tie, which had been knocked askew by the Maple Leafs jersey he'd pulled over his head."Bow-tie guys," I said with a smile to Jane as I adjusted her husband's knot, "take care of each other."It's an unlikely bond. On May 2, 1967, on the eve of my 10th birthday, Keon's Maple Leafs beat my Canadiens in Game 6 to win the Stanley Cup. When I asked him at dinner on New Year's Eve almost a half-century later how he felt having destroyed a 10-year-old's birthday, he studied me for a moment, grinned and said, "Pretty good, Brandon Marshall Jersey actually."
