Cooperalls, brown pads and goal-scoring goalies
Attention must be paid when a two-decade-old clip of your hometown team's goalie scoring a goal resurfaces. Especially if you were one of the very few there when the Kingston Canadians' Chris Clifford did the deed in January 1987, since you were there as a birthday treat, getting to go to a hockey game on a school night.
Like Doug Jeffries at CKWS-TV put it: "All 1,200 fans in attendance roared their approval. It's something you don't see very often."
Kinger would say, "What's that? The Kingston OHL team actually admitting there are only 1,200 fans at their games?"
