"Slap Shot" meets "A Season on the Brink" in this twisted tale of minor league hockey in the place with more pro teams than any place in North America: TEXAS!


Jason  Cohen

Jason Cohen first wrote about the  Austin   Ice Bats for Texas Monthly, where, as a Contributing Editor,  he has also covered the likes of Daniel Johnston, Matthew  McConaughey,  Ricky Williams, Ty and Koy Detmer, Dan Jenkins and Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Born in Allentown, PA and raised in Philadelphia, Cohen is a lifelong Flyers fan who prefers #17 to #88. When it isn't hockey season he enjoys being frustrated by the Philadelphia Phillies, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Penn State Nittany Lions, to say nothing of his alma mater, Northwestern University. He has lived in South Austin since 1990 -- one year after he first visited the city for a Penn State-UT football game (Penn State won).

Cohen has also written about sports, books, movies, TV, comics, sex, politics and metaphysics for such publications as TV Guide, Rolling Stone, Ray Gun, Details, Request, the Austin Chronicle, Option, the Asbury Park Press, Mademoiselle and SPIN. He is the co-author (with Michael Krugman) of the book "Generation Ecch" (Fireside, 1994).

He can't skate.
