about

Sean McIndoe of Down Goes Brown, one of hockey's favourite and funniest writers, takes aim at the game's most memorable moments--especially if they're memorable for the wrong reasons--in this warts-and-all history of the NHL.

The NHL is, indisputably, weird.

SEAN McINDOE has appeared as a featured hockey columnist for sites including Sportsnet, VICE Sports, ESPN and Grantland. With his sense of humour, strong opinions and in-depth knowledge of the game's history, he has built one of the web's biggest hockey-writing readerships and produces new content throughout the season while making reg...
