Whalers fans, get your ‘Brass Bonanza’ fix here

Sure they play it once in a while between innings at Fenway Park, but what about those moments of nostalgia when you need to hear the Hartford Whalers victory march right now? Thank the hockey gods for, a nifty site that lets you listen to several versions of the song. For those of us who owned "Brass Bonanza" on a 45-rpm record, there's even the beloved B-side, "highlights" of Bob Neumier's radio call from the night in 1975 when players from the then-New England Whalers and the Minnesota Fighting Saints got into brawl that resulted in the World Hockey Association's record for penalties: 41. It meant a combined total of 217 minutes in the penalty box, where you feel shame. (Yes, that's a "Slapshot" reference.)
