The Third Best Hull…

by Dennis Hull.

I’m reading this book on the plane on my way to work yesterday and couldn’t stop laughing at the exchange below between Dennis Hull and Chicago Blackhawks coach, Billy Reay.

” ‘What happened?’ Billy asked. ‘Did Jarrett get hit in the ankle again?’

‘No Billy, he got hit in the head.’ I replied.

‘Oh good.’ He said.”

The background to this is that Dennis Hull’s friend and teammate Doug Jarrett kept getting hit in the ankle by shots.  This time, however, he got hit in the forehead and was knocked unconscious.

I was laughing, almost out loud, for about five minutes after I read this.
