QUOTE (RonD @ 28th Sep 2012, 10:57am) *
Today Paul Henderson had the winning goal in the Canada/Soviet hockey series in 1972, forty years ago. It's the Canadian "where were you when?" moment for Canadians of my generation.



Ron , I remember that game so well , I was at home listening to it on the radio
I was'nt worth a dime , biggrin.gif

The series is in the eighth game and we're down to the wire. Team Canada matches the Soviet Union goal for goal in the first period but they fall to a 5-3 deficit by the second. Then, Phil Esposito scores for Canada! Yvan Cournoyer follows up with another goal.

But will it count? The referees meet and the goal is good. It's a tie game, 5-5 at 12:56 in the third. In the final minutes, Canadian fans nervously puff cigarettes and swill beer. With 34 seconds remaining, Canada crowds the Soviet net and Paul Henderson skates in. Hewitt roars, "Henderson has scored for Canada!" Team Canada captures the series. On this day, according to one fan, "God is Canadian." .........
I think Canada stopped that day but fair to say , the Soviet team
taught Canada a lesson or two in Hockey .

The Day of German Unity (German: Tag der Deutschen Einheit) is the national day of Germany, celebrated on 3 October as a public holiday. It commemorates the anniversary of German reunification in 1990, when the goal of a unity of Germany that originated in the middle of the 19th century, was fulfilled. Therefore, the name addresses neither the re-union or union, but the unity of Germany. The Day of German Unity on October 3 has been a German national holiday since the reunification in 1990, when the German reunification was brought out in full force. The 3rd of October is a legal holiday of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The Day of German Unity is at the same time an anniversary for the re-founding of the five states Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringen.

An alternative choice to commemorate the reunification could have been the day the Berlin Wall came down—November 9, 1989, which coincided with the anniversary of the proclamation of the German Republic in 1918 and the defeat of Hitler's first coup in 1923. However, 9 November was also the anniversary of the first large-scale Nazi-led pogroms against Jews in 1938 (Kristallnacht), so the day was considered inappropriate as a national holiday. Therefore, 3 October 1990, the day of formal reunification, was chosen instead.
