A captivating collection of short reads for hockey fans centered around the trials, tribulations and joys of growing up ice hockey. Told with wit and wisdom and contrived to verse, this engaging collection is sure to become a hockey fiction cult classic. Written to delight players young and old, parents, coaches, or anyone who has participated in, or experienced the wonderful world of youth hockey in any way. The driving force, power and pace of the fantasy hockey poetry flows through the metered verse, forming an electric undercurrent to the game as seen through the eyes of the players. The short read format lends itself to both the hockey commute and the warm room. As the title implies, the book is divided into three sections: Verses: presented with simplicity for youth reading enjoyment, these offerings span player attributes, attitudes and offer encouragement to young players; Myths: Short metrical stories based on a shred of truth, but spun to yarns, most written in an easy read format. Legends: A hat trick of pulsing hockey entertainment. My Antarctica is the initial adventure of the young hockey Goalie King to a special slumber land. He successfully lures the Buffalo Sabres to a quest for his Frozen Cup against his rollicking Penguins team. No, not those Pens from Pittsburgh... real ones, the Arctic Burrs. A sequel finds the King seeking NHL quality training by bringing his now mature Burrs to Buffalo to engage both the Sabres and the Niagara University Purple Eagles in another dream adventure. A third legend opens the door on a stick-on-stick tale of a small-town teen street hockey tournament contrived to win the local sports bar's paper replica of the Stanley Cup.
