Slap Shot Was Released On This Day 42 Years Ago Today


42 years ago, possibly one of the greatest hockey movies came out. For those of you that aren't familiar with the movie here's the synopsis:

"In the small New England town of Charlestown, the local mill is about to lay off 10,000 workers. The town's minor league hockey team, the Charlestown Chiefs, is doing no better. After years of failure, this will be the team's last season. Exasperated player and coach Reggie Dunlop (Paul Newman) letsthe club's recent acquisitions, the Hanson Brothers, play. The brothers' actively violent and thuggish style of play excites the fans. Dunlop retools the team, using violence to draw big crowds."

Caution there is some NSFW stuff in the clip below!
