Henderson has scored for Canada!

Forty years since Henderson scored the winning goal in Moscow. Forty freaking years!

Yup. The whole school was in the gym watching the game on a teeny tiny black and white Electrohome perched on the stage.

The school buses arrived at the beginning of the third period so we had to leave. After getting off the bus, my brother and I sprinted the 300 yards or so to our house where our Dad, Mom and some family friends were watching the game… made it just a few minutes before that magical moment! I don’t think I ever jumped for joy the way that I did that afternoon when I was 9.

    I was in college then. Sat in a common room watching the game with fifty or so others. When he scored the goal it was bedlam. I still remember it vividly. I don’t think I stopped smiling all the way home.
