Remembering Tim Horton Reviews
This book is a collection of articles concerning Tim Horton. Very complimentary of the man and player, the articles definitely give you a feel for the time and play of Tim Horton.
To today's young hockey players and fans, the name Tim Horton elicits thoughts of coffee and donuts; to an older generation of fans, the name Tim Horton brings memories of one of the greatest defenseman ever to play the sport.
Tim Horton's will forever be known as a place for a tasty treat, but all future Hockey generations should also know just why this man's name was so essential to the creation of a donut empire. He was admired and respected, and if he was playing today he would be exactly the kind of player the NHL would hitch it's marketing wagon to. Skill, size, and heart...what youthful Hockey hopeful wouldn't want to be like Tim? This series has been a magical flashback for fans and I sincerely hope they pick more colorful characters to allow us a look into their locker room.
This is a great book for those interested in hockey behind the scenes. It is very interesting to read stories told by people such as Punch Imlach etc. about Tim Horton off the ice, in the dressing room and family man. This book is not only for those hockey fans of the 6 team days, but modern day hockey fanatics as well.
