Happy Pronovost Day

We're in a festive mood (an icy mood?) over here at the shop. Marcel Pronovost Day is making airwaves courtesy of the CBC and Councillor Percy Hatfield, who's our emissary from the Mayor's Office. There's a cake coming that looks like a Red Wings jersey (and while it never occurred to me to compare the taste of fondant to the taste of wool)—there's a spiffy little write-up in the Windsor Star courtesy of Jim Parker—and of course, we're preparing for a BIG PARTY tonight over at Walkerville Brewery. 

There's also good news for all you devoted-yet-perhaps-through-circumstances-skint hockey fans out there: lots of opportunites forthcoming to win a free copy of A Life in Hockey. Spent all your money on shinpads for the kids? Marcel's autobiography could be yours still. Just do any or all of the following:

1. Enter the Goodreads giveaway via the widget to the left.
2. Email sportsS@windsorstar.com with your name and telephone number. Include "Marcel Pronovost Giveaway" in the subject line.
3. Tune in to AM 800 for the next Spitfires game and listen for your chance to win. 

And, of course, you can turn up to the launch tonight, where you can enter to win $100 in free Biblioasis books. See you there!
