God Bless Mess

He just might be the only professional hockey jock since Eddie Giac wearing a Red Wing jersey on the Garden ice who ever made me cry. He came to town and said “I’ll win you a Cup.”

And he did. Sometimes it looked like he dragged that team, kicking and screaming and praying that Richter would keep the door closed, but he finally forced everyone in Long Island who chanted “1940” to just STFU, and absolutely bitch-slapped the Devils in the process.

For me, he’s standing right there with Thurman… he was that good.

And he was a toughie, too. Never took shit, but sweet Baby Jeebus Lord Almighty, could he ever deal it out. Sometimes, I’d see that look on his face, and I’d say to myself, “he’s gonna kill somebody,” and then he’d go into a corner and just crush someone.

I truly believe no one would know Wayne Gretsky’s name if it wasn’t for Mark Messier. That kid would have been dead without Mess.

Legends of Hockey – Induction Showcase – Mark Messier

BTW, that is a freakin’ awesome crew the puckheads are inducting this year.
