About the Author

Rob Simpson is one of the only human beings in the last five years to bridge the rivalry between TSN and Rogers Sportsnet, having done live reporting and play-by-play for both. Simpson co-hosts a national radio talk show on NHL Network radio and used to host NHL Live in New York. He lives in Toronto; find him on Twitter @simmerpuck. John Shannon, a former longtime hockey broadcast executive, is a Sports Emmy Award-winning analyst and a current panelist on Sportsnet's Hockey Central.


"If you've spent any time with Simpson personally, then you know what a hoot he is and how good times always seem to find him. If you haven't had that experience, then read the book . . . it's the next best thing to being there." -- Neil Everett, ESPN Anchor

"For such an annoyingly tall broadcaster, he tells great stories and has written a really fun book." -- James Duthie, TSN anchor and author

"It's as if Simpson invited readers to join him for a beer and then began telling his best stories . . . an entertaining trip through Simpson's world." --

"Whether it's being on Kilimanjaro with Zdeno Chara, the Olympics in Torino, or calling the Northwest League championship series in Portland, there's nothing like being there with Simmer! Something unique always happens and I couldn't wait to read where the next adventure would take me!" -- Sam Rosen, TV voice of the New York Rangers (and NFL football on FOX)

"Spanning the globe, Simmer has been there, done that, and shares these stories with his usual sense of enthusiasm, adventure, and, most importantly, sense of humour." -- Gord Stellick, Sportnet radio, SiriusXM NHL Network (co-host of Stellick & Simmer)

"These are stories we tell of the stuff that happens to us in the course of covering things for you which never make it to print or broadcast but get told and retold in bars when we get together." -- Toronto Star Breakaway Sports Blog
