If you've had anything to do with hockey over the years, many of these stories feel authentic. There's the endless loyalty to your favorite team, knowing that they just *have* to win the Cup as the Cup belongs in Canada. There's the role of the "protector" on the ice, making sure that the team hotshot isn't harassed and abused by the opponents. There's even the harebrained scheme to "liberate" the Cup from its American place of residence, when really all the guys want is to be able to see it up close. For someone who doesn't follow the game, these stories will not have much resonance. But for those of us who do, these could be taken from our own lives.
The book is short, all of 82 pages, so it won't take you very long to read it from cover to cover. But you'll have more than a few smiles on your face during that time, and a number of you will feel like you're walking down memory lane.
