Any Whistle-Blowers Out There? The California Golden Seals Want You!


Hello everybody! It appears as if everybody has been stumped by final week’s photograph problem. You could bear in mind I had requested you all to establish the 2 names on the autographed Seals stick. They’re undoubtedly NOT simple names to determine, and you actually should know your Seals historical past. Right here is the stick once more, and the 2 thriller signatures:

Somebody by the title of Alan (sorry, I didn’t catch your final title…) was capable of establish the second signature, which belongs to Bob Lemieux, who performed simply 19 video games in Oakland. However what about that first signature?

OK, I’ll offer you guys a touch… This thriller participant by no means truly performed an official recreation for the Seals, so there’s no use trying him up at or Good luck, everybody!

I lately discovered one other fascinating photograph that I needed to share with you, and hopefully, somebody will have the ability to shed a bit gentle on it. It’s a display screen shot from an outdated TV present known as the Outdated Gray Whistle Take a look at, and it options maybe the one and solely time in human historical past when somebody well-known wore a Golden Seals (knock-off) jersey on nationwide tv.

The man enjoying guitar is the legendary Mick Ronson, and he was the Frank Welker of axe strummers within the Nineteen Seventies, enjoying with everybody from David Bowie to Lou Reed to Elton John to Bob Dylan. If Jesus Christ and Saint Peter had a prog rock band going within the day, he most likely performed with them too. Don’t get me fallacious, I’m an afficionado of all issues basic rock. I’ve bought a more-than-impressive CD assortment that features full discographies of nice bands, bootlegs, uncommon concert events, unlawful Russian variations, and all the things in between, however Mick Ronson’s profession has fully fallen by way of the cracks of my assortment. I actually don’t know a lot about Ronson, so the rationale he’s sporting Seals paraphernalia fully escapes me. Mad props to the dude for exhibiting the Seals some love at a time when each they and the game of hockey had been nearly full afterthoughts to the typical sports activities followers. I imply, it’s not like you would simply go over to Amazon and decide up a type of green-and-gold badboys again within the mid-Nineteen Seventies. If anybody on the market can fill me in on why he’s supporting the Seals on TV, please let me know. And if anybody can inform me why that lit-up man within the top-right nook is karate-kicking that star the place the solar don’t shine, I’d admire that too!

Earlier than closing out immediately’s replace, I invite you to vote for the nominees you’re feeling are most worthy of a spot within the Seals Corridor of Fame, class of 2021. You may click on on the Jotform hyperlink right here to solid your votes. There’s lower than a month left earlier than the voting closes, so for those who haven’t already completed your civic obligation, I urge you to take action now.
