In hockey only five guys have made the 50 goals in 50 games mark, a combined eight times! Can you name them? I remember all but Richard’s (I was not born yet!), but I remember the other seven.

  • Maurice Richard in 1944/5 in 50 games.
  • Mike Bossy in 1980/1 in 50 games.
  • Wayne Gretzky (THREE TIMES!!!) in 1981/2, 1983/4 and 1984/5 in 39, 42, and 49 games respectively!
  • Mario Lemieux in 1988/9 in 46 games.
  • Brett Hull (TWICE!!) in 1990/1 and 1991/2 in 49 and 50 games respectively.

What does 50 goals in 50 games have to do with me? Well, I am tried to read 50 books in 2011 … I thought I would most likely fail! But hey I figured aim high, hit high. And then I will have a good idea of how much I can actually read while still doing the things that I need to do; be a husband, father, employee, eat, sleep etc.

So here it is, the list of stuff I read in 2011, I was planning on reviewing them as I read … well that just did not happen! Maybe I should read 50 this year and review 100 … OK that would be crazy!
