2019 Weekly Picks Winner
Hate to be a downer here and shouldn't speak ill of the departed, but I couldn't stand listening to Johnny Pierson. I loved Fred Cusick, Bob Wilson, Don Earle, etc. But I could not stand Johnny Pierson. He disliked the fights and would often reminisce about when he played with Don" Mary" McKenney.
He definitely a skilled player but I never thought he fit the Bruins. They were a tough hard hitting team and he was as tough as Peggy Fleming. I much preferred Dave Shea and Derek Sanderson (big time homer) and other color commentators.
I named my son Derek, after guess who???
Back in those days went to "Bachelor's 3" in Boston. Sat down at a table, got an expensive drink, we were seated close to a table that was occupied by Bill Wirtz ( Chicago Black Hawks Owner) and about 10 of his friends. He bought the 4 of us a drink.. he finished his and looked at me as though it was my round, shortly thereafter we walked out. Like I was gonna buy 10 incredibly expensive drinks because it was my turn, forgettaboutit.
