Nope, different Esposito. Tony was the Blackhawks #1 goalie for many many years. Older brother Phil (with the Bruins) held the regular season goals scored record for a number of years, 76 in one season. I think Temu Selanne was the one to finally break it. Tony still holds the record for most shutouts in the regular season with 15 and he did that in his rookie year.

I was airplane crazy as a kid, hence the pilot heros. We had a map of SE Asia at home, and after the news, my dad would go over it with me and we would discuss the day's events. If McNamara had come to our house, the war would have take a different course!
Our neighbor's son was a marine, we sent packages once a month to him filled with food and socks and other things that I could not understand someone wanting, and when he came home, he came over to the house in his class A's to thank us. I don't think Jesus stopping by would have impressed me as much.

Oh, I think alot of us dream of lighting our cigars from his flaming eye sockets, while our buds are sodomizing him with a LAW, IN HELL. Black Sabbath wrote WAR PIGS for him.

How about "anti-heros".....? There's one for sure. In fact, the only negative emotion I felt during my viewing of "Thud pilots" was dreaming of embedding a tomahawk in McNamara's skull. I forgot my hatred of him.

Re: Heroes: Who were yours as a child?

I think it was either Phil or Tony Esposito playing for Boston, when he was smiling for the camera with missing front teeth. Back when goalies caught it in the teeth.

One hero when I was a kid was the TT motorcycle racer Mike Hailwood. Actually later in the early 1980s Mike was in a serious accident in which he knew somebody was not going to make it, he turned the car so he took the hit, saving his daughter's life.

.
That would have been Phil with the missing teeth, but Tony was the goalie and Phil played center. Orr racked up a lot of assists by feeding Phil in the slot (his office).

Phil was also the Founder of the Tampa Bay Lightning - still involved with the team.

Re: Heroes: Who were yours as a child?

My older cousin Lowell Rorrer, My father was a hopeless alcoholic, My cousin was more like a father to me than my actual father. Lowell is the one that got me into cars, taught me about life, convinced me to stay in school and was always there for me. I looked up to him every day. When he died a few years ago I was totally heartbroken.

Re: Heroes: Who were yours as a child?

My hero was my grandpa he was the hardest working, kindest, fairest man I ever knew . He's the reason I turned out OK. He wasn't afraid of hard work or a challenge or anyone and he was only about 5'10'' 170lbs he was an an old school Marine and was proud of it . Everything I know about being a decent husband, father, and, man I learned from him . DAMN I REALLY MISS HIM
