Hockey Facts

Early yesterday while me and my family were watching TV we ended up watching some hockey. While doing that I quoted the first fact on this list. I thought you dear reader might enjoy some more hockey facts so here they are.

“The Gretzky brothers hold the NHL record for the most goals scored by a set of brothers, with a total of 2861. Of which Wayne scored 2857 and Brent scored 4.”*

The Stanley Cup was created in 1893. It was named for Lord Stanley of Preston, a Canadian Governor General.

The names of twelve women appear on the Stanley Cup. They were either team executives or owners.

Baseball Fact

I found this fact while I was browsing the internet yesterday and I thought my readers would enjoy it. This is because I used to live in Staunton and some of my close family members love baseball.

In 1914, the city of Staunton fielded a team in the Virginia Mountain Baseball League: The Staunton Lunatics.”
