Legions of hockey fans know him as the rough-and-tumble winger who carried the hopes and dreams of Toronto Maple Leafs fans for a decade.
Wendel Clark is also the author of a new book – Bleeding Blue: Giving My All For The Game. And he’ll be our guest on the next edition of the RealAg Bookclub podcast. We’ll ask Clark some obvious questions – what it was like to carry the weight of Leafs Nation, and will the Leafs ever win the Cup – but we’ll also explore his farming roots and what made him the competitive, tough, resilient leader that earned the respect of all hockey fans.
How did growing up on a grain farm near Kelvington, Saskatchewan, prepare him for the life in the NHL? For young hockey players, how does the rural/farm hockey training ground differ from what he sees in urban centres like Toronto? Get your copy of Bleeding Blue and send us your questions for Clark via Twitter, Facebook or email.
The book is widely available at local bookstores and online here or here.
