Last week we put the biscuit in the basket with this rare look back at the Dallas Texans
, our first pro hockey team. Which is why Friend of Unfair Park PeterK sends this latest look back
at yet another beloved golden oldie on the auction block: the Dallas Tornado
, three members of which -- from left to right, Bobby Roach, John Stewart and Hans Petter Enger -- are seen here in a December 1967 photo taken in Jakarta, to which the team traveled to take on the Indonesian national team in a Russian-built stadium.
That much I gathered from the back of the photo, which accompanied a July 1968 Sport
magazine story headlined "Deep in the Heart of Rangoon." A little digging finally led me here: to a day-by-day account of the Tornado's 1967-'68 world tour
-- including a stop in Saigon right before the Tet Offensive. Finally
, my book.
