“You know the angels wanna wear my red pads…”
“Oh I used to be disgusted
And now I try to be amused.
But since their wings have gotten rusted,
You know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.” – Elvis Costello

Well, at least the mystery has been solved in regards to Crow’s red goalie pads.
In an effort to spur the growth of hockey in the United Kingdom, Elvis was allegedly seen in Crawford’s pads at a recent performance in London. It crossed my mind this week that you never hear anything about hockey in the UK. And this is a country that at one time conquered most of the known world. Truly unacceptable.
