Sean McIndoe of Down Goes Brown, one of hockey s favorite and funniest writers, takes aim at the game s most memorable moments especially if they re memorable for the wrong reasons in this warts and all history of the NHL The NHL is, indisputably, weird One moment, you re in awe of the speed, skill, and intensity that define the sport, shaking your head as a player makes an impossible play, or shatters a longstanding record, or sobs into his first Stanley Cup The next, everyone s wearing earmuffs, Mr Rogers has shown up, and guys in yellow raincoats are officiating playoff games while everyone tries to figure out where the league president went That s just life in the NHL, a league that often can t seem to get out of its own way No matter how long you ve been a hockey fan, you know that sinking feeling that maybe, just maybe, some of the people in charge here don t actually know what they re doing And at some point, you ve probably wondered Has it always been this way The short answer is yes As for the longer answer, well, that s this audiobook In this fun, irreverent, and fact filled history, Sean McIndoe relates the flip side to the National Hockey League s storied past His obsessively detailed memory combines with his keen sense for the absurdities that make you shake your head at the league and yet fanatically love the game, allowing you to laugh even when your team is the butt of the joke and as a life long Leafs fan, McIndoe takes the brunt of some of his own best zingers The Down Goes Brown History of the NHL is the weird and wonderful league s story told as only Sean McIndoe can Good book This book is halarious and well written.
