Growing Up Hockey: The Life and Times of Everyone Who Ever Loved the Game Reviews
This was a very quick read. It was a throughly enjoyable book to read. I wish at some point Brian Kennedy actually played in the NHL. Eventhough he wasn't the greatest player, I believe he would have been just because of his heart and soul. Sometimes, I think that is what is missing from today's game. Sure there are the skill players, the goons, but as Kevin Weekes would say, "those meat and potatoes kinda guys" are what is lacking in the game.
For a girl who grew up south of the Mason-Dixon line, where the nearest ice rink was 45 minutes away, this book was still deeply affecting and gave me a lot of insight into what growing up hockey might've been like had I lived somewhere else. It felt like I was living Kennedy's childhood with him, and I enjoyed every minutes of it.
AMAZING BOOK READ IT OR DIE it was so heartfelt.P.S. I GOT MY MOM TO READ IT
Very worth the time to read. For anyone who loves the game and grew up watching Hockey Night in Canada when it consisted of the few original teams.
