Looks like there are more
I can't believe that Howie Young got a cover of SI. Must have been a real slow week in sports. Going to have to find one of those for Fathers Day. I was too young to remember his "glory days" here, but my father used to talk about how he was truly insane, on and off of the ice. He apparently made Probert look like an angel, which of course Bob was. He got traded and somewhere along the way got sober. Came back around 67ish(?) and was a really good 2nd pairing D-man for a couple of years. He was a real big hitter, and had decent offensive abilities. He was here for probably 2-3 years, then I think he went to The WHA for 3-4 more years. Don't know what happened to him after hockey. He died around 10 or so years ago. I remember a small article in The News or Free Press when he died. I wonder if SI still has that issue available? If not, I guess I'll have to do a little searching. I'm sure the old man would get a kick out of it, and Fathers Day is just around the corner.
Go to this link, above the cover, there is a link to 'view this issue'. It's all there available online. Not sure if you can order a reprint. You can get reprints of some covers, just not sure about the whole magazine. Reasonably priced too, unless you get a frame. I don't think that cover is available though.http://sportsillustr.../7804/index.htm
