Blues' azul-tinged ursine avenger participated, appropriately enough, in yesterday's No Pants Metrolink Ride. Louie finally in his element. More pictures here, via Riverfront Times: http://www.riverfronttimes.com/slideshow/no-pants-metrolink-ride-2013-38611763/#7

Lil help on IDing this Blues player from the Blues Hockey School in 1971 at Winterland. Some have offered Craig Cameron but others say the ears are not big enough. Larger rez image here. Anyone? Thanks. Also if you can add any names to the pic. So far we have James Wehrenbrecht with the pads on and Kevin Whitworth (the big guy in the back row) his dad Jim Whitworth was a coach at Winterland and in the St. Louis Amatuer HHOF. http://www.stlamhhof.com/2010/JamesWhitworth/index.html
1971decal from Blues Hockey School at Winterland from Larry L. in our Winterland group. From Larry: "Barc gave that to me at one of the two day clinics he used to run. Barc was my neighbor for ten years and sometimes he would come to the tennis courts where we played hockey as kids. The first guy to ever lift my stick from behind. I gave him the same look that kids gave me when I did it to them." From Rob M.: "I attended the Blues hockey school at Winterland in the summer of 1971. It was either a 2 or 4 week session, I don't remember which. I remember that Barclay Plager was there every day and pretty much ran the show. He was a great guy and got along great with the kids. I remember Red Berensen, Bob Plager and Ernie Wakely showing up for a few days. There was a kid named Corky who was unanimously believed to be the best player. Once I got obnoxious and stole the puck from Red Berensen, just so I could say that I did it. Some days, they would show an instructional film on a movie projector on different aspects of hockey...passing, defense, etc. One day the movie was about checking. When they demonstrated a hip check, a big cheer went up. When the movie was over, we insisted that Barclay run the whole film backwards and he did it. He was great with that kind of thing...he wanted to give us good instruction and he wanted it to be fun. I remember Barclay once gave us a lecture against using curved sticks. He said all the great players, like Red Berensen and Gordie Howe, all used straight sticks. "
From Herm B. in our Winterland Facebook group: "The original St. Louis Blues Hockey School held at Winterland Ice Arena. This is from 1967. I attended both summers of 1967 and 1968. Pictured St. Louis Blues Instructors were: Red Berenson, Noel Picard, Bill McCreary and Jimmie Roberts. Barclay Plager was also an instructor (but not in this photo). I remember waiting to get on the ice and watching Noel and Barclay standing at opposing blue lines taking slap-shots at each other. Red Berenson and Ron Koblick (Corky Koblick's dad) became very good friends (Mr. Koblick was also the man who drafted me to the Comets). In the summer of 1977, Red and Mr. Koblick produced the "Red Berenson Hockey School" and I worked at the school for the two weeks it was open. Bruce Affleck was also an instructor with Red. Great memories from Winterland!" =============================================== If anyone recognizes anyone we're looking to put some names to these faces. Thanks.
