From Neil Stevens at the CP via Yahoo,
One of the most X-rated interviews of a coach ever recorded has finally made its way into print.
Get ready for a four-letter John Brophy barrage in “Tales From The Toronto Maple Leafs” by David Shoalts. The actual recording, made by Lance Hornby after a Toronto loss in Minnesota on Feb. 22, 1988, has been discreetly played for some of his pals over the years, but nobody ever dared to have it published - until Shoalts, like Hornby a Leafs beat writer, waded in with this hilarious look at some of the hijinx associated with the storied franchise during the last 50 years.
Don’t let the kiddies near this book. It is for adults only, and any Leafs fan who doesn’t mind the uncensored truth will love it.
Brophy used what Shoalts terms “the f-bomb” 72 times during the infamous interview way back when.
