After our WOHL game tonite, Mike Paola asked if anyone remembered the name Lou Angotti. Given the age of the guys in the room, most did. I immediately remembered him as a Minnesota North Star (a team he never played for) while most of the others nailed him correctly as a Black Hawk for most of his NHL years. Sadly I have no hockey card memory of Lou. A quick google search shows he also played the 1962-63 season here in the KW area with the KW Tigers before moving on to the Rochester Americans. Who knew?
There was also a bit of banter about some other players and old teams that came and went until we stumbled on one we couldn’t solve in the room via consensus – when did the Kansas City Scouts enter the league? As luck would have it, and as the song “2 outta 3 ain’t bad” suggests, I also had a card for that – 1974!
