Promotional Information

Sean McIndoe of Down Goes Brown, one of hockey's favourite 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.

About the Author

The short answer is yes. As for the longer answer, well, that's this book. 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.

Reviews

"In this fun, irreverent, and fact-filled history, McIndoe writes his obsessively detailed memories, combined with his keen sense for the head-shaking absurdities of the league. All this, while acknowledging the love for the game." -The New Classical FM

"McIndoe is definitely in his element writing The Down Goes Brown History of the NHL. . . . McIndoe's well-researched look into hockey history covers lots of topics with his humorous, and sometimes sarcastic, view providing an entertaining look at the NHL and how it came to be. . . . And as interesting as the history chapters are, these sections are fun and funny. . . . If you are looking for an entertaining hockey book you will want to consider The Down Goes Brown History of the NHL!" -NorthBayNipissing.com

"This is the book that Sean McIndoe was born to write, if only because the history of the NHL requires heavy doses of skepticism and sarcasm to prevent nausea. Hilarious, insightful and the only hockey book I've ever read that can balance a perceptive look at the history of fighting with how Harrison Ford indirectly saved the Colorado Avalanche. It's like having a guy at the pub giving you a master class in hockey history, except he's smarter and funnier than your drunk ass will ever be." -Greg Wyshynski, Senior NHL Writer, ESPN

"On a sunny, summer afternoon from my cottage deck, I picked up Sean McIndoe's book and could not put it down until I was done reading it. The Down Goes Brown History of the NHL is a delightful read, of course humorous because it's McIndoe, but impressively informative in finding a way to cram 101 years of NHL hockey into 249 pages. The wonderfully written book is also a reminder that while the NHL is a business, it's also entertainment, and sometimes we need to stop taking ourselves so seriously. We love the game, but let's remember it's just that, a game. McIndoe's historical account entertains and informs all at once." -Pierre LeBrun, TSN Insider and columnist for The Athletic

"Who better to chronicle off-the-wall hockey history than the off-the-wall Down Goes Brown, aka Sean McIndoe." -Bob McKenzie, TSN Insider and author of Hockey Confidential
