- Sep 3, 2005Norm Maracle was always a little on the stout side for a hockey player.
During the playoffs in the last year of the IHL in Cincinnati, people
passed out Krispy Kreme doughnut box tops and held them up any time he
skated in his end. They also had numerous other signs, many of which
he'd point to and laugh...sometimes waving for teqammates to come take a
look. He was always good-natured and never seemed to let it bother
him...even when the same people would talk to him after the games. Even
the other team would try to get at him with taunts and such. I remember
during those same playoffs, they tried to run him. Minutes later, when
Maracle had skated to the bench for water and discussion during a
timeout, he skated back and along the entire home team bench, blew a
kiss all the way down.
