Dean, being a family man busy with the obligations of a variety of business ventures, still finds his happiest times involved in his passion for coaching and administration of hockey in a small Northern Ontario town. He is not daunted by the conflicts and disagreements that occur over the way he coaches or the way organizations are run. He finds an ally in a young striving singer who comes to town and joins him in his businesses and hockey ventures. Together they bring out the best in their young students and, believe it or not, in their opponents.
“I found it highly entertaining. I really enjoyed the book. Tells behind the scenes of coaching minor hockey. Blue enjoyed it too.”
“Filane’s blood and gut story from Northern Ontario of a Northern Ontario lad trying to get into the cruel, real world of hockey is a true-to-life good read.”

About the Author
He is an entrepreneur who manages to crowd a singing career and coach hockey teams into the already hectic schedule of his two motels and service station.
An accomplished singer, he has four albums to his credit and, at the time of this writing, is working on his fifth. For many years now, people in the area have come to know Cosimo through his regular appearances on telethons to raise money for worthwhile charities.
Throughout his life, he has been fascinated with hockey and spent the last several years coaching teams in the minor league. This book is a result of that experience with some of the events taking place in the book based on real events, while others are the product of a creative imagination. The result is a story that is intended to entertain and reveal some of the problems that a coach faces.
