Howe Opens Up About His Book and Much More!!
I’m a Pittsburgh native. I’ve grown up there, in the city of “champ-yinz” for the majority of my life. When I had the opportunity to interview the great Mark Howe, I was elated. Yet, while I carried around his book with the image of him in a Flyers uniform, the glares I received from Pittsburghers, also known as “yinzers,” were comparable to those that one would get when only driving the speed limit.
Mark Howe, Gordie Howe’s son, as he continues to identify himself, exposed much of his personal life in this autobiography. Traditionally, an autobiography recounts the achievements and challenges that one individual has encountered. But, this book is more of a “family-ography” written from the perspective of just one person.
Few players have scored as many pre-NHL goals as Joffrey Lupul and remained this far under the radar.
In five years of playing junior hockey, he scored at least 40 goals in four of those years, including a 56-goal outburst. He has always had a knack for scoring and will look to regain the touch after an injury-plagued 2009-10 season. This Edmonton native has one of the strongest wills to become better and certainly has his focus in the right direction.
Ryan Stern from Back Sports Page recently got to talk hockey with Lupul.
