A figure in modern media, Down Goes Brown injects a shot of humour directly into the NHL’s funny bone.

Emerging from the blogosphere to the forefront of hockey coverage, Sean McIndoe (aka ‘Down Goes Brown’) employs his perspective developed as an outsider to present a hilarious take on the often flawed history of the league in The Down Goes Brown History of the NHL (Penguin Random House Canada).

In 272 pages, McIndoe (The Athletic) lays bare “the world’s most beautiful sport, the world’s most ridiculous league”, from the impractical to preposterous, deconstructing myths and uncovering mind-wilting gems along the way.

Even if you thought you knew it all, Down Goes Brown has another thing coming, find out more on the latest episode of SportsLit.
