Great to see Dave Hodge in the classic Baby Blue HNIC Jackets on CBC

Here is a nice clip of Dave Hodge guesting on HNIC...

So much history...and good memories...for a kid who used to eat, sleep and breathe hockey...


 


The world would be so good if it weren't for some people...

Great promotion and a worthy cause.  It was like I'd entered a time machine when I turned on the TV.

At the moment. Cherry's jacket is at $11,500.  what i loved about the hodge piece was how they replayed his intro to mclean as a rookie.  mclean has become a cornerstone of hockey.... enthusiasm and encyclopedic memory...and the ability to put up with cherry for so long!

I didn't know hodge as hnic so much... a few years before my time.  to me, he was just a grumpy guy on tsn. i have since come to respect his contributions, but still prefer ron. that bit had generational appeal

I might add... hodge, mclean. then the whole "strombo" experiment is right up there with the glowing puck. for shame.

To see Dave in the 'baby blues' again was absolutely terrific. He was always so great and remained so.  Great cause as mentioned.  It would have been nice if the rest of the classic old sports jackets actually fit the 'wearees' as well as Dave's fit.  Where'd they buy them?  Honest Ed's?  In spite of the cause it looked cheap.

Not to rain on the parade - I was and remain a fan of Dave Hodge - but in case anyone is not familiar with the circumstances under which Ron Maclean inherited Dave Hodge's job on HNIC:

Hodge's last night

My GF and I were talking about that as we watched the show. She was convinced they made the jackets ill-fitting for effect. They might have been polyester even. Hats off to the crew for going along for the ride.
