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.

Much to my wife's chagrin, I have been laughing out loud to this book. A lot. You see, I usually read DGB at work but now I can read it anywhere from the convenience of my own home.
If you don't know Downgoesbrown and are an hockey fan, you're really missing something and that book will help you bring it back.
Will give you your hockey fix until everything restart on November 23rd
These are just some of the words that come to mind. Wait, I'm writing a review for a book? Who am I talking to? Well, this is embarrassing. I'll give it a shot and here goes nothing.
DOWN GOES BROWN IS THE (<-Super CAPS) FOREMOST AUTHORITY IN HOCKEY-RELATED HUMOUR ON THE PLANET AND SECOND-MOST IN THE GALAXY (TZOGAR THE MALEVOLENT IS STILL NUMBER ONE). BUY THIS BOOK, BUY TWO, BUY ELEVENTY!
Oh, and eat healthy!
