How much do North Americans, Russians or Finns know about cricket? Three-fifths of five-eights, right? And that's exactly how much Ozzies know about ice hockey. But a tiny number of dedicated Ozzie fanatics have established a foothold for ice hockey in their Land of Sun 'n Surf. Albeit a slippery one! Join The Mob - the bumbling South Australian under-18 team in their chaotic quest to win the coveted national trophy at the big tourney in Sydney in the early 1990s. Sympathize with their suffering oldies whose misfortune in life is to have a son (or daughter) inflicted with ice hockey mania, rather than a love for normal Ozzie sports, such as cricket or footy. Join The Mob's reluctant team manager, Normie, a mid-life ex-flower child, in his search for ice hockey's yin. Be one of Normie's readers and discover the relevance of Ozzie slang and poetry to hockey. By the time you've finished reading this best seller, yer'll wanna meet this hockey mob who are considered nongs in their own sunburnt country and yer'll just have to jump the next plane heading Down Under!
