Description

When Teena Dickerson's new, sensitive, caring, artistic boyfriend, Bruce, transformed into a swearing, beer-swilling hooligan in front of the TV one spring evening, she had to find out the trigger for his unappealing conversion. The new element responsible for the change in her relationship bliss: the Stanley Cup playoffs.
She was thus compelled to understand this strange and powerful force men call “hockey.” In Clueless About Hockey, Teresa illuminates the arcane language of the sport (?butt-ending” and “chippy play?), the rules (icing), and the rituals (octopus throwing). It's all here: the teams, the history, the top players, and the trivia, written with clarity and humour. There are details on women's hockey, too, including Canada's medal-winning Olympic teams. (Who, after all, did better than the men!)
Teena is the first to say, “If you can—t beat—em, join “em.” In doing, she has uncovered within herself a love for the most revered of winter sports. The ultimate guide for any woman new to the game and the traditions that accompany it, Clueless About Hockey will allow you and your guy to enjoy hockey mania together.
