"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!

"The book was great! It answered a lot of questions I had about minor pro hockey, such as how much they make and what they do in the off season. It also re-enforced my belief that these guys have more heart than NHL players." - Alex, Orlando, FL"

"Thank you for a great read. You should really market your book in every minor league city. The IceBats are the focus, but the same book could have been written about every other minor league team. In my mind, I kept substituting TigerSharks for IceBats, and some of the IB players for TSharks. Same stories. Same memories. You really captured the moment--many moments."
- George, Tallahassee, FL

"Jason, I commend you on a fine read. Your book was refreshingly articulate for a hockey book" - Brad, Caledonia, ONT

"Dear Jason, as a former junior hockey player ( back in Slap Shot days ) and college hockey coach, I can tell you that your book is a masterpiece of story telling about the passion for the game of hockey. Reading your book is far more exciting than watching our home town Montréal les Canadiens of the boring NHL. Keep up the the good writing !"
- Marc, Montréal, PQ

"I bought your book to take to the UK with me. I finished it before I left... I feel that major league sports have left the realm of reality -- your book looks at real-life situations and real-life athletes, leaving me to feel absolutely certain that these guys are just like you and me."
- D.Y., San Angelo, TX

"I have read it twice now. It seems to have turned into a preseason ritual. I
grin every time I see Gunner on the bench and Brett on the ice. Thank you
for the book and an inside glimpse of what really happens in the CHL."
- Andrea, Oklahoma City, OK

"Fantastic book... Having been around minor league hockey for too many years I found it incredibly accurate and great fun to read."
- Jennifer, Phoenix, AZ

"I bought it here in Canada on Boxing Day and have been spellbound by the book until I finished it last night... The only gripe I have with you is that I now have yet one more hockey league to keep my eyes on. NHL, WHL, BCHL and now the CHL!"
- Frank, Victoria, BC

"I just finished Zamboni Rodeo and am writing to say how well you captured the feeling of brotherhood on a hockey team... I've been involved with the game of hockey for over 40 years, both as a player (Jr B) and as a Junior Referee. Your book was one of the best I've ever read about the game I love."

- Mike, Mississauga, Ontario

"My son-in-law has played fo the Muskegon Fury for the last eight years so I have been a bit closer to the players and to the business of minor league hockey than most fans. What a life!! Thanks for giving fans the oppotunity to find out how tough it really is to be a minor league player."
- Rick, Muskegon, MI

"I loved the book, I'm not much of a reader, but I finished it in three days. I would highly recommend it!! (and I'm not even a IceBat fan, go figure!)"
- Cindy, Odessa, TX

"I received my copy in the mail on Friday. Since I had to rush off to the game, I didn't get a chance to start it until Saturday afternoon. I finished it up at 2AM Sunday morning....Super book!!! It's a must read for all CHL/WPHL fans! Oh,heck, for any hockey fan!"
- Carol, Memphis, TN


"The setting and players reminds me so much of Slap Shot...One of the best hockey books I have ever read!!"

- Craig, Ottawa, Ontario

I love Zamboni Rodeo!!! I have read it four times and I am reading it for
the fifth time right now!... I hope there will be many more books to
come!"
- Meredith, Corpus Christi, TX

Your book is just great! Having grown up with the Rochester Americans, I
have witnessed many many seasons of minor league hockey... Your book captures all the moments, both good and bad, that personify what minor
league hockey is all about."
- Greg, Rochester, NY
