“Hockey: A Global History” with Andrew Holman
February 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$5.00
Hockey: the coolest game ever. Lace ‘em up tight because we’re going back to the beginning, and we have centuries to go. This fast-paced sport shot out of the shinny ponds of Saskatchewan, sped south to the United States and raced through Europe and Asia to become the worldwide phenomenon it is today. Meet hockey’s organizational visionaries and on-ice stars. Learn how the equipment advanced and the rules evolved. Visit the venues and relive the games. Find out how corporations fired up the game and how the Cold War put it at the crossroads of world politics. The puck stops here in this definitive, end-to-end history of the sport…for hockey fans and historians alike.
