1970s Canadian hockey legend, Hall of Famer, digger in the corners, embodiment of TRUE GRIT, all-around class act Phil Esposito is in Shanghai tonight
, being his living icon self at The Blind Pig
(it's what the Big Bamboo on Nanyang is now). Phil Esposito: One of the all-time greats. First player to score 100 points in a season. Held the most goals in a season until Gretzky came along. Two-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner. Centered on two Stanley Cup teams with Bobby friggin' Orr. It's your boy Phil. In Shanghai. So yeah, he's at The Blind Pig tonight, just hanging out being a generally decent dude and shaking people's hands. Details:
It's 150rmb to get in the place, which includes "hors d'oeuvres" and one drink. Damn, Phil, I know you played 18 seasons but 150rmb entry fee? You got Nicki Minaj guesting on your latest track or something?
