There is a pause. The two men idly stare at the proceedings on the street. Some kids are on a corner, all of them wearing Los Angeles Dodger caps. Familiar faces nod as they go to the smoke shop next to Foggie's place. Foggie and Bynoe nod in return. A younger barber works inside the shop. Foggie is thinking about having a little lunch.
Foggie: "You know the sport I like best? Hockey. My wife worked for the Bruins. I'd get tickets. I went to hockey all the time. I know it sounds strange, a black man liking hockey, but that's my game."
It should be noted—for what it's worth—that the Boston Bruins had the first black player in the National Hockey League. His name was Willie O'Ree and he played two games in 1958 and 43 more in '60-61. Foggie, alas, did not cut his hair.
