From the Back Cover
Praise for Down Goes Brown
"With his pointed playfulness, eye for the absurd, and smart, silly layers of punchlines and punditry, Down Goes Brown is like a puck-loving version of The Daily Show."
Katie Baker, Grantland
"Down Goes Brown is King Lear's fool; you think he's there for comedy, but he's really the smartest guy in the play."
Jeff Marek, Sportsnet
"Down Goes Brown makes me proud as a hockey fan and angry as a comedy writer, because he's so damn clever. Masters mockery like Datsyuk dangles."
Greg Wyshynski, Puck Daddy
"Canadians may be the greatest hockey fans on earth, but we generally lack much??levity when it comes to the national passion. So thank goodness for Sean McIndoe and Down Goes Brown."
Dave Naylor, TSN
Down Goes Brown is a blog dedicated to making fun of the NHL. This book is dedicated to collecting the best from the blog, like "A Transcript of Every Hockey Game Ever Broadcast" and "The NHL's Top Secret Flowchart For Handing Out Suspensions", and adding a bunch of new stuff that you won't find anywhere else, like "The NHL's Hall of Fame Application Form" and a "Brief History of Wayne Gretzky". Our research shows that the more copies you buy, the funnier it gets, so do yourself a favor and pick up several.
