There you go! We went tough on you…harder than a Rocky Thompson left to the kisser.
Favorite moment in Rampage history actually happened in Season 1. Thompson, known more for his fists than his wrists when it comes to hockey, announced early in the season that he wouldn’t shave until he scored a goal. The rugged combination defenseman/forward, current head coach of the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League, and Charles Manson lookalike with his facial hair all over the place, finally scored in March in the first period. When the team returned for the second period, Thompson was completely clean shaven. Rocky said, “I was scaring my kids. My wife wanted it gone.” Teammate Jim Campbell said after the game that Thompson made a beeline to the sink when the team returned to the locker room and started “hacking away on the jungle.”
Final game of the season tonight, have a great summer! Go Rampage!
