Publisher Description

Ron MacLean has been a Saturday night tradition for twenty-five years. Known for his quick wit, arched eyebrows and encyclopedic hockey knowledge, MacLean is the skilled ringmaster of Canada’s most watched weekly program. He has interviewed the greatest players, coaches and personalities of an era. He is a master of seeking the best in substance and entertainment from his guests, as well as from his opinionated and often irascible co-host, Don Cherry, on “Coach’s Corner.”

And he has never written a book—until now. Cornered is packed with inside accounts—some inspiring, many hilarious—from his early days as a part-time radio announcer and weather forecaster in Red Deer, Alberta, to his time hosting Hockey Night in Canada and the Olympics. Perhaps no other journalist has witnessed first-hand more Canadian sports milestones in the past quarter century. From Gretzky to Catriona, Mario to Sale and Pelletier, MacLean has been there with an eye for detail and an appreciation for what makes a great story. This enhanced edition contains additional photos from Ron's personal albums and promotional stills, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of the book, and a video introduction from Ron himself.
