Another Hockey Picture

Thanks to Paula H we now have another hockey picture of old guys who were once young... I believe most of these folks were born circa 1850's or so and had to play the sport indoors by candlelight.
I know for a fact that a couple of them shook hands with Queen Victoria personally : ) If you can name the players go right ahead....

The Pope visits Alaska

The Pope took a couple of days off to visit the Rugged Mountains of Alaska
for some sightseeing. He was cruising along the campground in the Pope
Mobile when there was a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods.
A helpless Democrat, wearing sandals, shorts, a "Save the Whales" hat, and
a "To Hell with Bush" T-shirt, was screaming while struggling frantically
and thrashing around trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot
grizzly. As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers came
racing up.

One quickly fired a 44 magnum into the bear's chest. The other two reached
up and pulled the bleeding, semiconscious Democrat from the bear's grasp.
Then using long clubs, the three loggers finished off the bear and two of
them threw it onto the bed of their truck while the other tenderly placed
the injured Democrat in the back seat.

As they prepared to leave, the Pope summoned them to come over. "I give you
my blessing for your brave actions!" he told them. "I heard there was a
bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic Environmental
activists but now I've seen with my own eyes that this is not true."

As the Pope drove off, one of the loggers asked his buddies "Who was that
guy?" "It was the Pope," another replied. "He's in direct contact with
Heaven and has access to all wisdom."

"Well," the logger said, "he may have access to all wisdom but he sure
doesn't know anything about Grizzly bear hunting! By the way, how is the bait
holding up, or do we need to go back to Massachusetts and get another one?

Mongo The Drummer

This reporter has just discovered that Mongo, the beloved Simian of Southern Ontario, has taken on a new endeavor involving his passion for rock & roll. When questioned about his newest adventure the beast answered, "Well, as you know, my lovely wife, Asteroid, has always loved rock music so I just figured I would please her and look into something different for awhile."

Mongo, employed for ages by the city of Windsor Fire & Rescue Services, has always been capable of "reinventing" himself over the years. "I kind of like to fashion myself after Madonna; she's always known how to change her appeal for the next generation. Besides, I just love it when she wears those leopard style kind of makes me homesick in a way", sniffs the Silverback.

When asked what he had in mind with this newest adventure Mongo smiled and stated, "Wow... I had a gig with Phil Collins lately and did an audition with him at his studio. Some guys recorded it into a video... wow, I sure hope it gets some airplay on Much Music... hummmm... that would really provide some new publicity! I just love it when I get the chance to play drums anywhere; it reminds me of the days in the Uganda jungles and the sound of drumbeats far off in the distance."

It is quiet apparent that Mongo certainly loves beating the drums as testified in the short video below. You can almost see the far away look in his eyes as he pounds on the skins and he somewhat resembles Ringo Starr of the Beatles. Maybe it's the hair.

When last seen Mongo was in search of some Ben Gay for his aching shoulders.

Please click on video below to see Mongo's latest rendition of "Something In The Air Tonight" accompanied by non other than Phil Collins.
