Shooting from the Lip is full of the off-the-cuff comments that keep millions of fans watching games and avidly reading the sports pages. These wise, sarcastic and hilarious quotes are fresh, frank and all about hockey. For example:

  • You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. (Center Wayne Gretzky)
  • I was kind of hoping it would straighten it out. (Center Rod Brind'Amour, after suffering his fourth broken nose)
  • I'm not dirty, just aggressive.
    Fighter pilots have machine guns. I have only my mask and stick. (Goalie Gerry Cheevers)
  • I don't want to tell you half truths, unless they're completely accurate. (Coach Alain Vigneault)

This new edition is bigger and now features new NHL stars like Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, for a total for more than 350 quotes representing 60 years of hockey. The quotes and quips are enlivened with colorful graphics and photographs of the featured players, coaches and other personalities.

The book covers a wide range of topics, including attitudes, blowouts, coaching and fans, hockey hair, injuries, feuds, penalties, goons, taking shots, and of course winning and losing.

Whether consumed in random nibbles or devoured in one sitting, Shooting from the Lip will entertain hockey fans of all ages.
