Synopsis: OPEN NET is another inimitable account of an amateur's foibles meeting the world of professional sport.
George Plimpton takes to the ice a goalie for the Boston Bruins, after first signing a document holding the team harmless if he should meet with injury or death as their amateur goaltender. He survives a game against the Philadelphia Flyers relaticely unscathed - and brings back this memorable portrait of the rough-and-tumble world of professional hockey.

From the Back Cover: In Open Net, another of George Plimpton's inimitable accounts of a fearless amateur braving the world of professional sports, Plimpton takes to the ice as goalie for his beloved Boston Bruins. After first signing a release holding the Bruins harmless if he should meet with injury or dearth as their amateur goaltender, he survives a harrowing, seemingly eternal five minutes in an exhibition game against the always-tough Philadelphia Flyers ¿ relatively unscathed. With reflections on hockey greats including Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and Eddie Shore, Open Net is at once a celebration of the thrills and grace of the greatest sport on ice and a probing meditation into the hopes and fears of every man.
