Joe College autobiography; 1972 and 1973

In September of 1972 Team Canada defeated the Russians and all of Canada was hockey crazy. Mike Sobala and I hitchhiked into Toronto to attend the welcoming festivities at Nathan Philips Square, and though it was bitterly cold, we shouted ourselves hoarse cheering for Paul Henderson and the hockey greats of the era, sans Bobby Hull who was blacklisted from Team Canada for accepting a $1 million payday to jump to the WHA's Winnipeg Jets.

This was also the beginning of my bigger travels, as I arranged a summer trip with Sobala and Brian Bishop, and we hitchhiked to Fort Erie (where we inadvertently camped in the shallow rough of a fairway on a golf course just across the road and down a bit from Fort Erie Racetrack) and Port Dover. Brian Bishop would also visit New Brunswick and PEI with my family one summer, and his twin brother Billy was the guitarist in my first band, and later the soundman for The Oh Nos and Eye Eye.
