Hockey Hall of Fame Quiz!
I cross-checked out the Hockey Hall of Fame yesterday (for FREE, thanks Phil) and thought I'd offer up a quiz about some of the photos that I took. Winner will receive the latest programme from the Hall! (Wrong answers won't end you up in the Penalty Box.)
Question 1. (1 point) Whose gloves are these?)
Question 2-11. (1 point) Can you name the following players? (Hint: click on the pic to enlarge it to the size of Eddie Shack's nose.)
Question 12. (1 point) What contribution did this young lass make to the sport of kings?
Question 13-30. (2 points) Name as many of the following cups that you can and the reason they are presented. (Bonus point if you can name the most recent recipient.)
Question 31. (1 point)
What contribution did this gentleman make to the world of hockey?
Question 32-33. (1 point) Who won the Gold during the following two Olympic games?
Question 34. (4 points) Who did it, when was it, where was it and what is the significance of the "Lucky Loonie"?
Question 35. (1 point) As you can see, the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup 4 times between 1961 & 1967. How many times have they won the Cup since then?
Question 36. (1 point) What is the significance of 802?
Question 37. (10 bonus points) Add a caption to the following picture:
We have a winner! Mr. Robert "BigBob" Browning of Toronto, Ontario chimed in with answers to all but two of the above. Due to my precarious numbering system, it's hard to tell which two but I think it's the final trophy, #30 (Frank "King" Clancy Memorial Trophy) and #31 on Shoitchi Tomita!

Honourable mention goes out to the only other respondent who answered the final question only with, "Why don't you pick on someone your own size, Mike." Thanks, Iris.
BigBob, your programme is in the mail (though I'll probably just hand it to you on Friday.) (Hmmm. Is there such a thing as a Hockey Otaku? A Hotaku?)
