Zamboni Driver by pdulis

Zamboni Driver

The Zamboni cleans the Nathan Philips ice rink with the Toronto old city hall in behind. Funny story about the Maple Leaf's Zamboni driver - the driver for the Toronto Maple Leafs farm team made his NHL dream come true playing as an emergency goalie for the competitors and miraculously won the game for the Canes. A game that will never be forgotten :)
Having the city hall in the background makes this feel like a European city. Nice capture. I'll bet the Zamboni driver would have rather played for his home team. Nice story.

I was thinking it was European too! Great shot - and then improved with the story :-) I'm wondering if the concrete arches serve a purpose - I shall trundle off googlewards.

Nice picture, but what is a Zamboni? It's a very common last name in Northern Italy, but I don't see the connection. fav

@caterina - LOL - thats funny - Zamboni is a brand of machine that smooths the surface of the ice on a rink. Frank Zamboni, the son of Italian immigrants, invented the first ice resurfacing machine in Paramount, California, in 1949. A proud Italian heritage :)
