Описание: From celebrated author and sports journalist Stephen Brunt comes a beautifully illustrated, elegiac tribute to the Toronto Maple Leafs of yesteryear.
In 2006, Lewis Parker, an artist and illustrator, was disposing of some of his belongings from years before in preparation of a move. He and his friend Dennis Patchett were going through boxes, and anything that was deemed not worth saving was relegated to a roaring fire. As Lewis passed him box after box, Dennis would pitch them in the blaze, one after the other. Suddenly, he caught the words on a file folder: "Leafs 1965." Inside were photo negatives and contact sheets. "I think we should keep these," said Dennis. In the fall of 1965, artist Lewis Parker received a call from Maclean's magazine for a possible gig: accompanying a reporter to Peterborough to cover the Toronto Maple Leafs's preseason training camp. Lewis would spend some time with the team, and shoot stills that would run alongside the magazine piece. Though it was a career departure, he agreed, and the result of his time spent with the Stanley Cup-winning team during the training camp before their last Cup win are within these pages: beautiful, visually arresting photography that captures the comraderie and purity of a time in hockey and Canadian history not seen since. With complete, unfettered access to the team -- many of the players from remote farms in the country, and none with agents -- and GM Punch Imlach, Lewis Parker's photos (which, once the piece was cancelled by Maclean's, were never used) reflect a wistful moment in time before the hockey league changed forever. Accompanied by acclaimed writer Stephen Brunt's essay on the '65 training camp -- based on interviews with team members -- Leafs '65 is the ultimate tribute to the Stanley Cup-winning Toronto Maple Leafs, to a forgotten era of hockey, and to a moment in Canadian history that will resonate with any reader.

Описание: Renowned sportswriter Stephen Brunt reveals how "the Great One," who was bought and sold more than once, decided that the comfortable Canadian city where hockey ruled couldn't compete with the slushy ice of a California franchise. Bobby Orr's career ended prematurely, with tears. Wayne Gretzky's tears, unlike Orr's, announced not an ending but another beginning. Gretzky's Edmonton Oilers had four Stanley Cup victories, but Gretzky may then have had other goals in mind. Beginning with his dad, Walter, and continuing with Nelson Skalbania, Peter Pocklington, Bruce McNall, Jerry Buss -- and with the CBC's Peter Gzowski as chronicler for the eager masses -- the enormity of Gretzky's talent attracted all sorts of people who were after a variety of vicarious thrills.

Описание: In the first ever anthology of its kind, one of Canada's premier sportswriters brings together the best writing on sport in this country, with a strong contemporary flavour. It's all here: classic reports on Canada's great sporting triumphs, from Joe Carter's World Series--winning home run for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993 to the excitement of the back-to-back men's and women's hockey gold medals in Salt Lake City. Stephen Brunt gives an entire section to writers who, unlike those covering other beats, must work tightly by the clock, submitting their stories just as soon as the action for the day is over. But he has also chosen our best writers' more thoughtful pieces on our national obsessions--such as Ed Willes on the WHA's seven tumultuous years and Wayne Johnston on the Original Six--and a good sampling of the great sportswriters such as Trent Frayne, Peter Gzowski and Milt Dunnell. The net effect is an examination of the deep role sport plays in our lives and imaginations, in our sense of self and nationhood. Stephen Brunt has cast his net widely. He includes superb stories of lower profile Canadian sports such as wrestling and horse racing, even Monster Truck battles, and allows space for his own unequalled and unforgettable profiles of Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, as well as his post-mortem on Ben Johnson's fall from grace. Full of triumph and heartbreak, great writing and great passions -- and a few wonderful surprises -- this book will be essential reading for every serious sports fan. Including: - Ian Brown on the stud-horse business - Christie Blatchford on the 2003 Women's Olympic Hockey Gold - Rosie DiManno on the Men's - James Christie on Ben Johnson's 1988 Olympic triumph in Seoul - Michael Faber on Pat Burns - Red Fisher on Lemieux and Gretzky at the 1987 Canada Cup - Trent Frayne on Canadian Open golf champ Ken Green deciding to play Sun City during apartheid - Bruce Grierson on Canada's best squash player - Peter Gzowski on the Oilers with Gretzky - Tom Hawthorn on John Brophy's last brawl - Brian Hutchinson on Owen Hart's widow's revenge - Wayne Johnston on the Montreal Canadiens - Guy Lawson on curling - Allan Maki on the 1989 Hamilton-Saskatchewan Grey Cup - Dave Perkins on the biggest home run in World Series history - Mordecai Richler on snooker's Cliff Thorburn - Steve Simmons on Donovan Bailey - Mike Ulmer on Cujo's charm and more...
