New author Ray Walker steps up to the plate as a sports enthusiast and data expert with this fresh compendium of entertaining and illuminating facts about the Boston Bruins. Though everyone knows the team, even those us who are not hockey aficionados, this well written book flows with facts and trivia that both amaze and entertain. Ray has also written CRAZY SPORTS STORIES, THE ULTIMATE NEW YORK YANKEES TRIVIA BOOK, and THE ULTIMATE DALLAS COWBOYS TRIVIA BOOK, so it becomes readily apparent that not only is his knowledge of hockey keen, but also baseball and football.
In his introductory comments Ray states, ‘Team fandom should be inspirational. Our attachment to our favorite teams should fill us with pride, excitement, loyalty, and a sense of fulfillment in knowing that we are part of a community with many other fans who feel the same way. Boston Bruins fans are no exception. With a long, rich history in the NHL, the Bruins have inspired their supporters for nearly a century with their tradition of colorful players, memorable eras, big moves, and unique moments.’
And with that impetus for learning some of the facts about this team, the session (aka ‘game’) begins. Each chapter – Origins and History, Jerseys & Numbers, Famous Quotes, Catchy Nicknames, The Captain Class, Statistically Speaking, The Trade Market, Goaltender Tidbits, Odds & Ends, Bruins on the Blue Line, Centers of Attention, The Wingers Take Flight, The Heated Rivalries, and The Awards Section – is delivered in the form of quiz questions followed (of course) by quiz answers and embellished by even more trivia in a Did You Know? section.
For knowledgeable fans and those who would like to become knowledgeable, this book is a fine resource. Impress friends and acquaintances with in depth knowledge of the sport of Hockey. Grady Harp, August 20
This is an interesting informative book about the Boston Bruins. For those who want to know more about that team, I would recommend this book to them. Some of the interesting information in this book includes the following information: Although Charles Adams owned the team, General Manager Art Ross, who had been well-known as a player, became the team's public face for its first three decades. Jersey number 89 out of all the Bruins jersey numbers had been worn for the fewest games in Bruins history. The longest stretch the Bruins went without an official captain lasted from 1967 until 1972.
What a cool book. As a life long hockey fan, can you say Bobby Orr, I loved this book. It is easy and fun to read, it brings back all sorts of great memories and really a must have for any Bruins fan! Grab a copy, you will love it!
