Slap Shot ranks as one of the most popular sports movies of all time, and the bespectacled, fighting Hanson Brothers are among the most memorable characters ever spawned by the silver screen. Now, one of the brothers--real-life hockey player Dave Hanson--invites readers onto the movie set and into the rough-and-tumble world of minor-league hockey in this hysterical and highly anticipated autobiography. Follow Hanson's fascinating life from the tough neighborhoods of St. Paul, Minnesota, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania, where he played for the Jets and made hockey's greatest movie (chumming with Paul Newman and getting involved in all kinds of mischief), and on to the NHL, where his boyhood dreams were fulfilled. Hanson's story--filled with both hilarity and adversity--will make you laugh out loud and warm your heart.
