Back in September I posted what proved to be my second most popular blog entry ever - The Top Ten Moustaches In Hockey History.
My top ten quotes from the book Shooting From The Lip was my most popular, by the way.
Well my moustache post has been back in the limelight as of late, thanks to Puck Daddy's feature Pass or Fail: Bringing Back The 'Stache.
In the feature, where they insist on using mustache's American spelling, Sean Leahy links to my little blog, and in doing so says "pray that the picture of Paul MacLean doesn’t give you nightmares for a month."
The picture Leahy refers to is MacLean's 1982-83 O Pee Chee rookie card:
That's quite the picture! Problem is, it is not actually Paul MacLean. The card is actually an error card. Pictured is Larry Hopkins, who played 41 games with the Jets the previous season!
Dun Dun Dunnnnnnh!
I know, it is shameful. I've known this for quite a while now, but I have never corrected it. Until now. Now is the time to do so, and I there is no better way to do that than to learn more about Larry Hopkins the man, the legend, and the moustache.
