Gordie Howard is a typical Canadian nice guy whose passions in life center on beer and the great game of hockey. Trapped in a job he hates and absolutely witless in love, his greatest joys are found in the bleachers, on the sidelines, or mystified in an armchair. But Gordie’s past mistakes are lurking in the shadows—ready to haunt him. Gordie sees himself as a beer-swilling sports fan who actually salivates when the siren goes off for puck and knows his players’ stats better than he knows the names of his ex-girlfriends. After his latest love interest leaves him, Gordie becomes swept up in the frenzy of the Cup Run of his favorite team. But when new friends enter his life, Gordie begins to question his choices—and his work life takes a surprising turn. Through puck drops, nights with the boys, boring staff meetings, and awkward family dinners, Gordie struggles to find his own version of happiness. In this vivid tale, Gordie must learn to rely on the help from a band of colorful friends, a few bottles of tequila, and eighty-two regular season games in order to conquer his fears and find his true purpose in life.
