    Best I ever saw was in the old St. Louis Arena. Red Wings went up 4-0 and the place emptied out, meaning I was able to move down from standing room only. Blues stormed back to tie it. Detroit thought they had the winner late but it was disallowed because it was kicked in. My first NHL game in person.

    I have a few superhero ties and sports logo ties that attract attention.

    Jack Brisco and Dory Funk Jr. had some great 60-minute ones back in the 70s.

    They should be lined so as not to cause discomfort. And always use a safeword.
