1973 - 1974
AUTHORS' COMMENT: "'Well', someone said to me somewhere along the way, 'the men of Gelngarry are hardly typical are they?' Sure they are. Ralph Connor found the same type crawling all over the West. More recently, a bunch just like them took to the rink in the Canada-Soviet Russia hockey series.
"Grace and style we've always lacked. This country is no Camelot. But Camelot didn't work - neither Arthur's nor JFK's.
"Glengarry worked. Canada worked. Putting together a bunch of overly vain, under-conditioned hockey players in a hurry worked - once they realized they were playing for something more than bucks or headlines. Macdonald Bhain would understand why Jean Paul Parise - one of the most gentlemanly players in the NHL - lifted his stick to an official or why a kid from Kingston would disgrace himself on TV with an ugly gesture to no one in particular.
"The men of Glengarry were sloppy, wild, unpredictable and at times, uncontrollable. So was Team Canada..... So is a loving heart."
