Read that Gordie Howe is starting to show mild dementia. Hope it's really not the case. He truly was what hockey ought to be.

He probably gave a few hundred guys dementia, too. Personally I hate "old time hockey". The league will never be accepted until they get the fighting and chippyness out. That cost them many of their great players. I would prefer that it was like Olympic hockey with a lot of skating and skill.

He is getting older. Mild dementia, in all honesty, is expected. He is a legend, but time isn't always kind.
