Before there was a Wayne Gretzky, before there were a lot of other giants in hockey with real talent, among them there was the Great Gordie Howe. Playing with the Detroit Red Wings & Hartford Whalers for his National Hockey League (NHL) career, "Mister Hockey" played on the ice in several professional leagues in VI different decades, a truly accomplished gentleman. Here he teaches kids to listen to ensure they learn the message they are being taught.
"I always tell kids, you have two eyes & one mouth. Keep two open & one closed. You never learn anything if you are the one talking."
