100 Things Penguins Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die

Triumph Books have included a few hockey teams in their "100 Things . . ." series. In the past I've recommended them as stocking stuffers for fans of the team, but otherwise was kind of indifferent to the series.

So when they announced the Pittsburgh Penguins were included for 2011, I did not get too excited. But that all changed quickly as I realized they selected Rick Buker to write 100 Things Penguins Fans Should Know And Do Before They Die.

Buy The Book - - Chapters -

Buker previously wrote the 700-page encyclopedic Total Penguins, an absolute must have for Penguins fans. There may be no one who better knows the Penguins history than Mr. Buker. So who better to fill up a book of 100 entertaining and educational stories? Heck, he could probably write a second volume!

Penguins history is relived one story at a time. Mario, Sid, Jagr, Ronnie Franchise, Badger Bob, and Sly Syl are all here. So are Demolition Durby, Frank Pietrangelo's save, Les Binkley and, look out Loretta, the incomparable Mike Lange.

Rick Buker has done it again. He has written another book that is simply a must-have for all Pittsburgh Penguins fans. It's a great read, whether you attempt it cover to cover or just picking it up for a couple of stories at a time.
