Friday Morning Skate: Plimpton!


Last night I went to see the documentary, Plimpton! It's about George Plimpton, who did a lot of what's called "participatory journalism." He famously played goalie for the Boston Bruins in a preseason game in the 80s. Mike Milbury was in the video, and it's the first time I've seen Milbury on a screen talking where I didn't want him to just go away. Milbury was "designated stick thrower" in that preseason game, making sure that George saw a penalty shot in his brief stint in net. Reggie "The Riverton Rifle" Leach took the penalty shot and Plimpton stuffed him.

Two takeaways from that: 1) The Flyers suck, and 2) it was a really fun documentary and y'all should see it if you get a chance.

Anyhow, happy Friday. What's on tap?
