“If theScore Media had a Hall of Fame? Who would be in it?” – Sid Seixeiro
With all the discussion and news today regarding the Hockey Hall of Fame, it got Seixeiro thinking about who would they consider would be in the Score Media’s Hall of Fame if one existed. Micallef sounded a little bit hesitant about nominating people because he didn’t want to piss anyone off, but do you think that would stop Sid? Not a chance…“The opinions expressed here are solely those of Sid Seixeiro….well maybe I’ll jump on board. I’ll see how it goes.”, Micallef.
So Tim and Sidizens, Fans of the Score, Score Radio, and Listeners from around the world, meet the First 8 theScore Media’s Hall of Fame Inductees.
