The Habs honor Guy

This most eventful week for me, as a Carbo fan, has resulted in one of the most hilarious photos of Guy I have ever seen.

Per's Dave Stubbs on Twitter:  "I haven't fought in 30 years and I'm stuck in the tie-down strap!" Carbo laughed.

The Montreal Canadiens honored Guy before last night's game, adding his portrait to the Bell Centre's Ring of Honor.  The entire pregame ceremony is available on the Habs' official website here.  Additionally, Guy was mic'd up for the ceremony and video of that is also available here.  Unfortunately, my Ottawa Senators rained on Carbo's parade, beating the Canadiens 2-1.

This has been an incredible week.  Congratulations again, Guy.  It is so very well deserved, and thank you for continuing to be such an inspiration to me.  You are my hero.

Finally, I want to give a special shout-out to my friend Kit for being my Twitter eyes and ears this week and tweeting me all things Carbo.  Thank you so much!

Another of Guy's jerseys hits the auction block

(image source:'s current auction has a Carbo game-worn jersey up for bids.  It is a road Dallas Stars gamer from the 1999-2000 season (the final season of Guy's career).  It is a 1st set jersey and has a lot of game wear.  It comes with a Dallas Stars team letter.

The current bid is $322.10 USD and the auction closes on December 6 at 10:00 PM EDT.  It will be interesting to see what this jersey goes for with Guy now in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

You can find the jersey here

Video of Guy's HHOF acceptance speech, among other things

Guy shows off his HHOF ring next to his plaque.  (Image source:  Twitter/@DallasStars) has posted video of Guy's acceptance speech from last night.  You can find it here.

In addition, Dave Stubbs of spoke to many of Carbo's peers prior to the HHOF induction.  He has posted a round-up of those comments here.

Finally, the HHOF official website has posted many photos of the weekend's festivities.  Those galleries can be found here.

On a personal note, was Guy's HHOF induction worth my 12-year wait?  (Not as long as Guy had to wait, mind you!)  The answer is yes.  Absolutely yes.

Some reading for you all on HHOF Induction Day

A number of articles about Guy have been published prior to his HHOF induction which will be happening tonight.  Here are a few.

More HHOF content will be published in the coming days.  I'm currently in nursing school and am extremely busy with my studies, but I'm taking time out this evening to watch Carbo's induction.  Wouldn't miss it for the world!

A wonderful article about Guy's impending HHOF induction

And we're back!  My domain expired at the end of September but it is now renewed just in time for the HHOF festivities next week.

Dave Stubbs of has written an absolutely fantastic profile of Guy ahead of his HHOF induction.  In it, Carbo reveals that he shed a few tears when he got the call from Lanny McDonald and John Davidson.  He isn't the only one; I cried, too.

The HHOF induction festivities are next week, and I can't wait.  I'm sure Guy can't, either.
