View from Section 26
A fan's look at the minor leagues featuring pro hockey's most unwanted team
View from Section 26 is a collection of off-the-wall stories along with an irreverent look at the characters behind them that make minor-league hockey unique.
Featured is the IHL's Manitoba Moose, a team as unwanted as any in the history of the game and badly neglected by its ownership. Hockey historian Curtis Walker recalls his experiences following a team that slogged through a dreary, yet oddly entertaining existence playing in front of pitifully small, comatose crowds at the Winnipeg Arena.
