Wikipedia Files: Bobby Hull

A few weeks ago, Bobby ‘The Golden Jet’ Hull came into our studios for a live interview with Alison Cuddy and Eight Forty-Eight. He has a new book out about his life in hockey. Hull is arguably the greatest hockey player to ever play for the Chicago Blackhawks.

So when I saw him sitting out in the lobby waiting for his interview, I had to ask him to do a Wikipedia Files. This was one of the more entertaining Wikis ever, just because of the color that Mr. Hull brings to the answers. Although I can’t skate.

Oh yeah, he swears. So don’t get mad at me for playing along. And oh yeah, he let me wear his championship ring. Jealous? Look at the determination in both of our faces. We would kill it on the ice together.
