"Tropic of Hockey"

Novel by Dave Bidini.

"Tropic of Hockey-My Search for the Game in Unlikely Places"

Has anyone given this a read yet? I just picked up a copy yesterday and it's a good read [it's somewhat old..from 2001 I believe].

I own it and haven't read it yet, but they made a cbc program out of it...it was pretty interesting.

I have read it twice. It's a very good read, though I could have done with a little less NHL-bashing.

Like someone said above, they made a TV program on CBC out of it. It was pretty interesting.

They showed a Greek team, and if I've heard correctly now the only ice rink in Greece has been closed. Pretty sad actually, especially for a country that isn't that poor.

I found the site....
