Now friends...here's a real laugher! What ever got into my head (and onto my head) to get an Afro? And, why did I do it during Christian Sportscene '79? We invited several sports celebrities to Peterborough over the course of 4 or 5 days.
Andre Thornton and Rick Waits of the Cleveland Indians came to town for a luncheon at the Rock Haven. Rick sang, accompanied by me, and Andre gave a challenging message. Andre had lost his wife in a tragic car accident in 1977.
Later in the week Andre Dawson (Expos) flew in from Montreal and Alvis Woods from the Blue Jays joined us in our booths at Peterborough Square.
Mike Crombeen of the St. Louis Blues and ex-Pete, Randy Johnston also joined us.
In this picture my good friend Stephen Smith and Al Woods (Blue Jays) joined me in the booth!
Please don't laugh too much! THANKS!
