I Shall Be Released   Leave a comment

The Band

“I Shall Be Released”

They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see my light come shinin’
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say that every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

I see my light come shinin’
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he’s not to blame
All day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed

I see my light come shinin’
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

NHL Hockey Helmets Past and Present   Leave a comment

Very early leather helmets

The first player to regularly wear a helmet for protective purposes was George Owen, who played for the Boston Bruins in 1928–29. The last player to play without a helmet was Craig MacTavish who played his final game during the 1996–97 season for the St. Louis Blues. In 1927, Barney Stanley presented a prototype of a helmet at the NHL’s annual meeting. It was quickly rejected. Other than George Owen a year later, the helmet didn’t appear again until after the infamous Ace Bailey–Eddie Shore incident on December 12, 1933, as a result of which Bailey almost died and Shore suffered a severe head injury. After that, Art Ross engineered a new helmet design and when the Boston Bruins took to the ice in a game against the Ottawa Senators, most of the players donned the new helmet. The next game, though, most of the Bruin players didn’t wear it. Eddie Shore was one of the players who did wear it, though. Shore would wear a helmet for the rest of his career.
