Slap Shot plus 40

The movie "Slap Shot" debuted 40 years ago, and the people of Johnstown celebrated this weekend.
The Hanson Brothers have been there for many years.
We've been back together for over 25 years now. I was coaching in Memphis, and I brought the boys in because we weren't drawing very well in the Central League. Dave was the general manager of the Capital District Islanders, and he wasn't drawing very well. We brought [the Hansons] into Memphis, no long hair, just mustaches, and we sold out the place. Dave did the same thing in Albany, New York. And ... it has been just an unbelievable ride. We've been all over Canada and all over the United States. We've been to Germany four times, London, England, and Dave made a trip to Australia last year.
