Nikolai Petrovich Starostin's Grave
Nikolai Petrovich Starostin's Grave
Nikolai Petrovich Starostin born 26 February 1902, died 17 February 1996 was a Russian footballer and ice hockey player, and founder of Spartak Team of Moscow. The eldest of four brothers, Starostin was born in Presnensky District, Moscow where he enjoyed a comfortable upbringing courtesy of his father's reasonably well paid job as a hunting guide for the Imperial Hunting Society. Football was a minor concern in Russia in this period, but the sport was growing. A Moscow league had been founded in 1910 but this died away in the years following the revolution of 1917. Starostin is said to have welcomed the revolution, though he played no active role in the revolution of 1917. Following the death of his father from typhoid in 1920, Starostin supported his family by playing football in the summer and ice hockey in the winter. In the late 1930s many of Starostin's friends and associates were arrested as part of the Great Purge, including Kosarev. There were also attempts to more closely control sporting matters, including forcing the Semi-final of the 1939 cup to be replayed after Spartak won the first match by a disputed goal. They went on to win the replay, which did not take place until after Spartak had already won the final. On March 20, 1942, Starostin was arrested, along with his three brothers and other fellow players, facing accusations of involvement in a plot to kill Joseph Stalin. Following two years of interrogation in the Lubyanka, the charges were dropped but the Starostins were tried and sentenced to ten years in Siberia anyway, having been found guilty of "lauding bourgeois sport and attempting to drag bourgeois motives into Soviet sport" Stalin died on 5 March 1953. Beria, who had initially been part of the leading group after Stalin's death, was executed later that year. As part of the movement towards "Destalinisation" an amnesty was declared for various political prisoners and this included Starostin. His sentence and those of his brothers were declared illegal, and they were set free. Nikolai was appointed as coach to the Soviet national football team, and in 1955 returned to Spartak as president, a position he maintained until 1992.
Day 90 - Summer Days
Day 90 - Summer Days
Day 90 - Nothing is more relaxing than just chilling on the balcony, cooking up some pork chops. Yes today was a grilling day, the chops come from Costco, which wifeys uncle recommended to wifeys mom, whom recommended it to us. The weather was on our side today, as the clouds rolled in but did not rain, altho I wish it would, there are too many mosquitoes out, altho they were scared off by the rain clouds I think. Sadly they are now out in full force as the clouds have dissipated. Was reading the news today about the oilers training camp. Apparently most of the coaches see nothing wrong if Nugent-Hopkins spends a year in the Minors. Wow, how long has it since the first overall pick played in the minors?? too long, must have been in the 80's, should the oilers have traded the pick for Seguin who can probably be our second line centre? Boston could use a young forward in their system, since I think they will run into cap issues next year, unless they choose to dump some salary, also my boss mentioned that the oilers dropped the bomb, since the jets took someone ranked to be taken in the second round, the oilers should have went up to them, and offered their #19 pick with something for the #7 pick. Ok enough rambling, I guess I am just a hockey nut, it does not help that my boss is a hockey nut too LOL.
