Humor In Hockey

Here's a rare and odd find from my personal library:

It is a Philadelphia Flyers-centric book from 1971. Put together by Ed Conrad, writer for the Philadelphia Daily News and The Hockey News at the time, it is essentially a goofy caption book. There's a couple of dozen dark, grainy black & white pictures, mostly of unknown players then and especially now, with a simple caption to go with each. None of them are particularly hilarious. In fact, I would say the cover shot of the gap-toothed goal Doug Favell is about as funny as it gets.
