You Mean To Tell Me....

You mean to tell me I grew up playing table hockey with Canadian and Leaf players on my table hockey set when I could have had Blues players? Santa Claus ripped my azz off if so. Please tell me these Blues players were never offered on the public market in the late 1960s. I guess it could have been worse, the set could have came with Blackhawk and Wing players. I'd of run away from home had that happened.

 

This is close to the Munro table hockey set I had although I don't see the automatic puck ejection rod to knock the puck back out after a goal. It had the overhead scoreboard complete with clocks and a red goal light that lit up when you scored.

You faced the puck off by dropping it in a hole on top the scoreboard and the puck zig zagged down and then dropped out the bottom between the center men. It came with two pucks, one regular and one magnetic that would stick to the metal players sticks. We used the regular puck cuz you could zing wrist shots better, sometimes across the kitchen on a deflection. We had to play on the kitchen table since it was the only good flat table in the house.

My cousin had a cheaper set so I would take mine to Iowa when I visited them so we could play on the better set. Many disputed goals with that knucklehead Blackhawks fan. We taped the plastic knobs on the rods so they wouldn't spin when you cranked a shot. We also used Endust to polish the surface and make the puck really zip around.

When the Blues weren't on the air you'd find my friends and me blasting away in the kitchen most nights as long as supper was over.

Who had a table hockey set?
