"Where is my Messier, a giant hope that fights O.K?"

This is probably a better post during the summer when not much is happening in the hockey world, but a story in the NY Times caught my interest Drama from Ice to Stage, and I wanted to pass it along while the link is still active.  The story features a new play with ice hockey as the backdrop and characters modeled after Mike Modano and Alexander Ovechkin.  It also mentions other hockey-related books, movies, and plays--not a very long list but a few unusual entries make up for the dearth of material.  How about the hockey movie musical that opened the Toronto Film Festival with the very creative title, Score: A Hockey Musical? It stars, of course, Olivia Newton-John, and I have to wonder if she plays the "good" hockey mom while someone who looks like Tina Fey channeling Sarah Palin plays her evil nemesis.  Predictably the movie Slap Shot is mentioned along with the other side of the cerebral spectrum Ken Dryden's hockey memoir The Game.  The title of this post is part of Slam: The Hockey Rock Opera.  (Remember to use a colon in the title if you plan to write a musical about hockey.)  Here's hoping we don't have a long off-season to indulge in all this reading/viewing.
