Quote of the day

May 24, 2007

“When you have bacon and eggs for breakfast, the chicken makes a contribution, but the pig makes a commitment”.
– Fred Shero

That’s a quote I read today on the great Edmonton Oilers’ fansite, Lowetide. I can’t remember if I had heard it before or not, but either way I got a kick out of it.

Fred Shero was a defenseman for the New York Rangers during the late 1940’s. He was, however, more successful as a coach. Shero won two Stanley Cups as a coach of the Philidelphia Flyers.

Fred Shero passed away from cancer on November 24th, 1990.
