"I really got into it," Hawkins said. He's not kidding.

Thirty-five black Angus cattle crossed the border by truck after a brief inspection at Lewiston, near Niagara Falls.

For the Boston Bruins, the Montreal Forum had been a chamber of horrors for 45 years, a place where all dreams were nightmares. The Montreal Canadiens had beaten Boston in 18 playoff series, a streak beginning in 1943 and ending on this date 11 years ago. Ironically, a kid who grew up only a few blocks from the Forum, Steve Kasper, who showed Boston the way out of the jinx. He and teammate Cam Neely scored twice to lead Boston to a 4-1 win, before 18,904 in the Forum, who sat in stony silence.

Robert Wold, the Minneapolis Lakers' public address announcer from 1947 to '49, set out to answer that question last year. Now a consultant for David Kohler's new privately owned Lakers Shrine museum in Laguna Niguel, Wold solicited the help of Bob Berger, the son of Ben Berger, one of the two original owners of the Lakers.
