HASH(0x9ba3175c) out of 5 stars Great book for the Blues fan, for any hockey fan. March 2 2015

Love this look behind the scene by one of the St Louis Blues best characters. Bob Plager was the funnyman on the team but always made team for the fans, as I can attest to, as I've been a Blues fan since their first year. And I loved the look into his relationship with his brother, Barclay, when Barc got so sick. It was interesting to see the serious side of Bob Plager. My only problem with this book is that it was too short!

HASH(0xa38eef48) out of 5 stars Entertaining Inside Look at Inaugural Blues History Jan. 26 2014
By M. Berger - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Bob Plager tells stories from a mischievous player's perspective during the first few seasons of the St. Louis Blues expansion team era in the late 1960's. Plager's writing is quirky, vacillating between a first- and second-person perspective that is authentic to how most hockey players speak in real life. Once I got accustomed to his style, the book was really easy reading.

I was born in '73 and grew up in the St. Louis area a Blues fan. This book had a way of being nostalgic for me, despite my not having followed most of the Blues players named in the book during my lifetime. This is not the greatest example of literary writing, nor the most poignant memoir on the planet. But it's an entertaining read for Blues fans who want to connect with the team's early history, and a telling time capsule, revealing how times have changed in sports and in the world. Overall I recommend to any Blues fan or sports history buff.

This is the same bookas the book issued under the title Tales from the St. Louis Blues Bench in 2003. Completely misleading to advertise this book as being newl;y issued in 2013.

HASH(0x9bd3ebb8) out of 5 stars Should be titled Plagers stories from the St.louis locker room Aug. 25 2014
By jim robertson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a St.Louis Blues fan I did like the book overall. I will say what I did not like about the book was all the stories were told by Bob Plager, so don't assume like I did that it would be a series of short stories by a few different players wearing the Bluenote.

I've been wanting this book for a LONG time. Finally secured a copy at a decent price. MAJOR Fan of the Plager brothers. Can't wait to get it autographed by Bobby P.
