Big Hockey Fan in the Family

Here is a picture of Lee at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA a few years ago wearing a Scifinder Scholar t-shirt with the Periodic Table of the Elements.  He may not distinguish himself as a chemistry librarian or a basketball player, but he has quickly become the biggest hockey fan in the Slutsky family.  This afternoon as we visited my Mother in Westbury, Lee insisted that we all watch the NBC game featuring the Philadelphia Flyers against the Chicago Blackhawks.  His grandmother remarked the hockey is boring since all the players do is just skate back and forth.  I remember I became interested in hockey in the early 1960s when I watched the Rangers on Saturday night on WPIX-TV when Win Elliot was the announcer.  I saw my first game hockey game at the old Madison Square Garden at 8th Avenue and 50th Street in late 1963 shortly after the Kennedy assasination.  The Rangers lost that game to the Montreal Canadians 6-2.
