George Plimpton takes to the ice with the Boston Bruins in this memorable portrait of the rough-and-tumble world of professional ice hockey After forays into American football, golf and the world of professional boxing, George Plimpton accepts his riskiest assignment yet- taking to the ice as goalie for his beloved National Hockey League team, the Boston Bruins. Signing a release holding the Bruins blameless if he should meet with injury or worse, his initiation into the league's toughest tribe begins. But when the Bruins find themselves up against the equally fearsome Philadelphia Flyers, a mere five minutes in the rink can seem an eternity. Told with Plimpton's characteristic humour and insight, Open Net is at once a celebration of the thrills and grace of the greatest sport on ice, and a probing meditation into the hopes and fears of every man.
