Finally, normally when an NHL legend passes away, we will say rest in peace here and celebrate his career. Well, sorry, I’m not like too much of the hockey world right now and celebrating the career and life of Bobby Hull. Like it or not his career and life are intertwined. He reaped plenty of financial and special benefits due to his hockey career and instead of putting them to good use, he was a raging alcoholic who beat numerous spouses, was openly racist and sympathized with Hitler. In the humble opinion of this puck scribe, it’s time we stop letting our idolization of sports stars blind us from what’s right and wrong. I’m pretty sure a large percent of those celebrating Bobby Hull right now won’t do the same when the wife-beating, racist drunk down the street passes away.
