A legend is dead. Börje Salming died today – 71 years old. One of our great ones. Celebrated and honored as recently as a few weeks ago in Toronto. So glad he was able to be there and receive the greetings from a whole world. So well deserved!
We have seen him many times cheering on his daughter Bianca competing in track&fields.
I have also seen him quite often close to my work where his Salming Concept Store is – especially a few years back when the store was new and he was there quite often.
They are making a series about his life – with one of the Skarsgård-brothers (Valter) playing Börje. It is still under production so we will have to wait a while for it though.
