Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In From the Broadcast Booth, veteran voice of hockey Brian McFarlane gathers a lifetime of his most cherished memories from his years in the game. As the voice of Hockey Night in Canada for 27 years, he was in the backrooms, the dressing rooms, the boardrooms, and of course on-ice and in front of the camera as witness to many of the most exciting events in hockey history, from the birth and demise of the WHA to Gretzky’s 92-goal and 212-point season. These stories, and the larger-than-life personalities who were part of them, are told here for the first time, in McFarlane's trademark colorful, no-holds-barred style.
