This year’s Oscars featured many luminaries, most of whom just sat in the audience looking good. But surely there were three empty seats, meant for the Hanson Brothers, supporting players and scene-stealers from the cinematic triumph “Slap Shot.”
A worthy cause and an enjoyable day, though I had to explain to my 9-year-old son that it will be several years before I let him see his new bespectacled heroes in the film that made them famous.
And to those of you at PodCamp Toronto this weekend; I may be missing the fun, but I saw some of the hockey-themed photos on the Flickr streams, and I don’t think any of you can beat Pie McKenzie, John Bucyk, Ken Hodge and the Hasnons. So eat your heart out.
