Bob Picken Thread
Sir Robert (aka Bob) Picken is ailing. He's fighting terminal cancer. Many folks across the country have encountered Pick on the ice lanes, the board room or the broadcast booth.
Please feel free to put your thoughts down on Mr. Picken in this thread. I had the pleasure of working with the man in the late 60s, 70s and 80s. He was always a gentleman. Always a pro.
Here's a cherished tidbit that I always used to rub in Bob's face. The FP article from Bob's lone appearance in a Manitoba men's championship final. It was 1963 and Bob suffered an inglorious 17-12 loss to Hersh Lerner and his no-hit squad from Maple Leaf. I'll post another item about Picken, an interview with Paul "Red' Friesen later.
I'm one of the good guys now!
