Hockey Books That Would Just Never Sell—Part III, the Finale

Greg CaggianoSenior Writer IJuly 16, 2008

Without further adieu, I present all die-hard hockey fan Bleacher Creatures with the grand finale of my "Hockey Books that Would Just Not Sell" trilogy.

Before I get down to business I just want to thank everyone for their votes over the last two articles especially with Part Two winning article of the day yesterday.

Now I don't want to explain everything for a third time so if you haven't read parts one and two, I would suggest doing so. That way you get the gist of what's going on in this article.

I hope you enjoy the final part of hockey books that would just not sell...

Well, for those of you who can't stand this anymore, it's officially over. For those of you who love it, I'm afraid this is your last chance to take in some laughs and maybe even create some of your own by submitting them in comments.

And maybe, just maybe, with enough motivation, there may be a part four special far into the future.

I had so much fun doing these three articles and I hope you had fun reading them and got a few laughs. If so, I have accomplished my goal. Thanks for reading...
