Tributes have come pouring in this morning in the wake of news that NHL icon Gordie Howe — “Mr. Hockey” — passed away at the age of 88.

Some great anecdotes in here, including one from Wayne Gretzky about the time he saw Howe meeting with Muhammad Ali.
Oh, and here’s the ESPN commercial Patrick was talking about, when Howe “roughed up” Keith Olbermann.
