Remembering Jack Falla. Writer. Teacher. Backyard Rink Builder.

14 Sep

3 years ago, the hockey world lost a legend.

Jack Falla wasn’t just a great writer.

He was a father.  A grandfather.   A husband.  A teacher.  A friend.

He was an inspiration to many sports and hockey journalists (including me!), so it is today that we remember his life, his talent, and his humor.

Check out his books, “Home Ice” and “Open Ice”.  They are ones that every true hockey fan should read.

I was extremely lucky to have been a student of Jack’s while a journalism major at Boston University.  He taught me so much about writing that I am forever grateful.

So, thanks Jack.

We miss you.

One more skate around the rink, eh?

Jack, Captain of the Bacon Street Omni
