Indeed, this is a true account, as I was there.  The earth shook, and
all watched in amazement.  Although, as I remember it, the younger Duke
did crouch down behind the elder and entice him to fall over him in
a version of the fabled "Three Stooges" maneuver.

The sad part, of course, is that the puck was nowhere near them at the
time.  And even if it had been, empirical evidence suggests that County
rank players from northern climes are more likely to score, although
Dukes make more noise when doing so.
