Jerry Dowling has left an In Memory comment for Keith Ward.

Keith "Moses" Ward lived across the street from me on Reedmere. He was a Glen Hall/Terry Sawchuk wanna be, but actually was more like Monty Reynolds, a Windsor Bulldog backup goalie. We played on the driveway ice pad at my house every night, using a goalie net made of 2x4 wood and burlap netting. We honed out skills. It really helped my stick handling and Keith's puck stopping. I tagged him with that monicker after a boxer named Moses Ward. He was very sarcastic and a wordsmith, especially targeting Danny "Bongo" McLean with his barbs. RIP Moses!

Guess you have to click on this to see it properly. This is John Boehner, the new Speaker of the House, who is from our neighborhood and played golf with us before he became big.

Bengals cheap, useless owner Mike Brown and his hapless coach Marvin Lewis, at the announcement of poor Marvin signing a new contract.
