A quirky sports me­moir

Toronto Life - - Culture - by Jay baruchel

Cana­dian ac­tor Jay Baruchel has al­ways been ex­tremely vo­cal about his love for the Mon­treal Cana­di­ens: he proudly sports their team logo in in­ter­views, has ap­peared in promo videos and was once given the ti­tle of hon­ourary cap­tain. In his de­but me­moir, he takes his fan­dom one step fur­ther, weav­ing to­gether his most hi­lar­i­ous and nos­tal­gic sto­ries from his child­hood in Mon­treal and his time spent liv­ing in Oshawa (en­emy ter­ri­tory), where Leafs fans dom­i­nate. Baruchel brings the same heart and hu­mour to his writ­ing that he does to his act­ing, which makes this sports me­moir equal parts en­ter­tain­ing, light­hearted and comedic.
