Comedian John Hodgman received a very interesting piece of vintage hockey memorabilia for Christmas: A cookbook assembled by the wives of the 1990-91 Hartford Whalers.
Sorry loved ones. @markmcconville just trumped y’all in 2015 with this present I just opened. AND HE HELPED KIDS TO BOOT. Welcome home and happy new year to you all.
Between 1979 and 1997, the team now known to us as the Carolina Hurricanes Brass Bonanza’d it up in the Nutmeg State (and taught us all how bad a head coach Pierre McGuire could be). This cookbook is a cozy look at the team and their families, but it’s also a hockey nostalgia bomb, a warp tunnel to the NHL of old, full of mustaches and tips for juicing lemons.
