Dave Hill is a multitalented man, but a fan for one season — hockey season.
The comedian, essayist, and musician is meh toward his hometown NFL Cleveland Browns, but hockey had him hooked right off the hop. Over his life, it has become a source of perplexment as to why more Americans are not similarly stoked about hockey. In his fourth book, “The Awesome Game: My Incredible, GlobeCrushing Hockey Odyssey,” Hill seeks out hockey wherever he can find it from Nairobi, Kenya to Kemptville, Ont., showing how the game provides an emotional release that you might not find in many other places.
“The Awesome Game” is Hill’s fourth nonfiction book. He also has a 2022 comedy special, “The Pride of Cleveland,” produced by 800-Pound Gorilla Media.
