“The soccer goalkeeper invited my son and me to a party. It was the father, son and the goalie host”

"The hockey/soccer goalkeeper invited my son and me to a party. It was the father, son and the goalie host”—a spoonerism of “father, son and the holy ghost”—began as a hockey joke in 1963. The joke has been told with several different phrasings.


Wikipedia: Trinity
The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (Latin: Trinitas, lit. ‘triad’, from Latin: trinus “threefold") holds that God is one God, but three coeternal consubstantial persons or hypostases—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit—as “one God in three Divine Persons”. The three Persons are distinct, yet are one “substance, essence or nature” (homoousios). In this context, a “nature” is what one is, whereas a “person” is who one is.

WORST JOKE OF THE WEEK
Jacques Plante of the Montreal Canadiens has his own TV show in Montreal and in a recent show his guests were the father-son broadcast team of Foster and Bill Hewitt. The show was billed as The Father, The Son and The Goalie Host.
(Jacques Plante played hockey for the Montreal Canadiens from 1953 to 1963.—ed.)

Then I read the note from a colleague a second time, and got it. It said:

“Here’s a news item for you. Toronto goal tender Johnny Bower had Foster Hewitt and his boy Bill, the Maple Leaf broadcast-telecast team, to a private dinner the other night. Just the three of them, father, son and goalie host.”

The San Jose Sharks hockey team recently sponsored a father/son night as part of the festivities, there was a drawing, and one of the prizes was a dinner for the winning father and son with the Sharks’ goalie, Arturs Irbe.  Well, the winning group went out to eat, and it must have been something to see-the father, the son, and the goalie host.

The Gourmet Dinner

Anaheim Mighty Duck super star, Teemu Selanne, had never had his father see him play professional hockey. He was thrilled to have his father visit him recently to watch him play. In honor of the occasion, his good friend, Mikkail Shtalenkov, arranged a special banquet at the renowned local Scandinavian restaurant, Gustav Anders, where noted chef, Anders Strandberg, prepared a gourmet dinner of the Selanne’s favorite Finnish dishes. In addition to the entire Mighty Ducts team and staff, Disney and Orange County dignitaries attended with the entire tab being picked up by the Duck goalie. It was a huge success. The Orange County Register reported the next day that it was certainly a dinner worthy of ... the father, the son and the goalie host.  (By Stan Kegel)

A goalkeeper hosted a celebratory dinner at his house after his team won the league championship.
Before dinner, he asked the coach to say grace. The coach concluded his prayer by saying, “We ask that you bless this food in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the goalie host.”
