[Hockey] Crossing the Line by Derek Sanderson

Just heard the Turk on local radio. He is in HRM today promoting his new book, "Crossing the Line"...

»www.amazon.ca/Crossing-Line-Dere···8&sr=8-1

He will be in Chapters, Bayers Lake this evening for a book signing...

Love the story he told Rick Howe (radio host on News 95.7) on how he suckered punched Jean Beliveau. Apparently John Ferguson went ape shit when he witnessed his Captain being taken advantage of by the Turk... So Fergie confronts Sanderson asking why he did this... Sanderson replies Beliveau refused to sign an autograph for him when he was a 8 years old... Derek claims Fergie then broke up laughing....Derek told Rick Howe that he held a grudge against Beliveau ever since the autograph refusal...

Sounds like an interesting read... Maybe some of you blokes will put this book on your Christmas gift wish list...

Turk was then and is still is the poster boy for paying professional athletes too much money as it ruined him professionally and personally. Good to see him back and using his personal experiences in helping others avoid the road he traveled in life as we should have seen many more years then we did of Turk playing pro hockey.

People often forget it was #16 (Sanderson) who passed the puck to Orr for the Cup wining goal against my Blues in 1970...
