Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

From the above link:

Unable to get a team in Chicago, Norris bought Olympia Stadium and the Falcons franchise in 1933. He immediately changed the team name to the Red Wings and began building a champion.

With Jack Adams as coach, Norris purchased Scotty Bowman and Syd Howe from the St. Louis Eagles.

The Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in 1936 and were the first American franchise to repeat as champions in 1937.


Um... am I reading this wrong, or was Scotty Bowman purchased when he was 3 years old?

I had no idea. I think it's kind of odd that we have two 'Scotty Bowmans' in Wings' history. Wonder if there is any relation?

I love "Olympia Stadium." As a stadium name, I mean.

That's all I've got.

Don't Toews me, bro!
