To our WWII vets thanks, today is Pearl Harbor Day.
I thought with today also being the anniversary of Gordie Howe scoring his 1000th career goal (December 7, 1977 at Birmingham vs. the Bulls) and the fact that a lot of us are missing hockey that this might be an approprate way to head into the weekend.
I know I have some hockey lovers amongst the viewers and when I shoot a hockey game I love to watch the goalie as there tends to be lots of action in and around the net.
With that in mind here are a bunch of goalie shots.
