Today marks the 90th birthday of NHL legend Scotty Bowman!
With a coaching career that lasted from 1967 to 2002, he holds the record for most wins in NHL history with 1,244 regular season wins and 223 Stanley Cup playoff wins. While coaching in St. Louis, Montreal, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Detroit, he led his teams to a record nine Stanley Cup championships. He is the only NHL coach to lead three teams (Montreal, Pittsburgh and Detroit) to Stanley Cup victories. And that powerhouse Canadiens team of the 70’s won 4 Cups in a row from 1976-79!
So let’s wish Scotty Bowman a good day, eh?
Today is also the 83rd birthday of Francis Thomas Avallone, better known as The Million Eyes of Sumuru star, Frankie Avalon!

Here’s a bit of unexpected trivia: Did you know he is credited as the co-writer of the 1974 Mac Davis hit, “Stop and Smell the Roses”?
I saw him play live in the 80s at my college. I think he was with a band called Xebron.
In this case, I’m giving not only a cheer, but also a “get well soon”.
Oh no, a broken femur is serious. Sadly, at her age, a break like that is often the beginning of the end. Hopefully she recovers.
But she was dancing around to amuse some giant teenagers the last time I saw her!
It always amazes me when people live that long, but he’s also a very cool guy.
Especially when he was close to death last winter!
