Bobby Hull & Burton Cummings at Winnipeg Arena shooting CBC special "Portage and Main" in 1979.
The Golden Jet with the Golden Voice.
Burton Cummings said - It was certainly memorable for me to have Bobby Hull thundering down the ice a million miles an hour and letting that blistering slap shot of his go over my head, repeatedly for the cameras...I wasn't allowed to wear a mask, because the viewers wouldn't see it was me. He was in absolute control, of course, but I couldn't help but think what would happen if just ONE of those slap shots "went awry"...memories to store for a lifetime...
