On August 24, 1972 Jean Beliveau was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Beliveau played 20 seasons on the Montreal Canadiens and won the Stanley Cup 10 times. Beliveau was the first player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy for his performance in the 1965 Stanley Cup playoffs. He retired at the end of the 1970-71 NHL season with impressive career highlights, such as being the Canadiens' all-time leader in points and the NHL's all-time leading playoff scorer. He scored 507 goals and had 712 assists for 1,219 points in 1,125 NHL regular season games plus 79 goals and 97 assists for 176 points in 162 playoff games. Wow, did you get all of that?
Beliveau's jersey number 4 was retired on October 9,1971. After retirement, he set up the charitable Jean Beliveau Foundation which was transferred to the Society for Disabled Children in 1993.
We hope you have a happy 33rd birthday Kobe. We really do. But what we really want is for you to work your magic off the court like you do on the court and do something about this NBA lockout. Please. We want to see you on the NBA hardwood floors. These playground / gym highlights are fun and everything but we want to see you under the lights, playing against the other best players in the world. Please.
In the meantime, we'll watch YouTube videos over and over, and we'll hold out hope that we'll see you in October. And again, Happy Birthday Black Mamba.
