Hockey: From Thereby Hangs A Tail


June 16th, 2011 Posted 9:30 am

I’d been in the Metro Arena once, back before the hockey team left town, me and Bernie working on a case involving some crazed fan. Hockey: the strangest game I’ve ever seen, made no sense, plus all the fans turned out to be crazed and we maybe didn’t even end up finding the right one and clearing the case, which hardly ever happens. Also, I got to go on the ice, supposedly a treat. Ice! Once was enough, let me tell you. Plus the players smelled very bad and the puck was none too tasty.

“You’ve got an appearance at the Hudson Public Library?” Admin says.

“Yes,” says Spence.

“Six thirty tonight?”


“That’s Hudson Mass.?”


“The same Mass. where the Boston Bruins have their home?”

“Your point? As you would say.”

“Game seven, Stanley Cup finals, starts at 8.”

“But they don’t drop the puck till about 8:25. So not to worry.”

“Do I worry?”

“It’s your default mode, if you don’t mind me saying.”

The One Book, One Hudson reading program begins tonight at 6:30 with a visit from the author of this summer’s selection. Spencer Quinn, author of “Dog on It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery,’’ will be at the Hudson Public Library to sign books and talk about his writing.

“You don’t know anything about hockey,” Spence says.

“I think the term is derived from the Dutch for hook,” says Admin.

“I’m talking about the game,” Spence says. “Of which you know nothing, and yet you’ve bet a bottle of Highland Park on the Bruins.”


“With your brother Anthony, who lives in Vancouver and knows hockey backwards.”


Knowing things backwards – that comes up from time to time with humans, may even be in The Dog Who Knew Too Much. As for hockey, I once got hold of a puck. That turned out to be a bit of a challenge. And was I at a game once? Is that in Thereby Hangs A Tail? So much happens in life! Wouldn’t have it any other way.
