Author Biography

Dave Hanson is best known for playing “Jack,” one of the unforgettable Hanson Brothers in the movie Slap Shot, but he also enjoyed a memorable hockey career that spanned 10 seasons and included stints with three World Hockey Association teams and the NHL's Detroit Red Wings and Minnesota North Stars. Today, he manages the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center in Pittsburgh, where he lives with his wife, Sue (who also appeared in Slap Shot), daughters, Erin and Sara, and son, Christian. Dave also continues to make regular promotional appearances around the country with his fellow Hanson Brothers, Steve and Jeff Carlson. Ross Bernstein is the best-selling author of more than 40 sports books. His work has been featured on CNN and ESPN, and in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. He is also a motivational speaker, sharing the inspirational legacy of the late Herb Brooks, coach of the fabled 1980 gold-medal-winning U.S. Olympic “Miracle on Ice” hockey team, with corporations and groups across the country. Ross and his wife, Sara, have a five-year-old daughter and live in Eagan, Minnesota. Bob Costas is a popular sportscaster who has been on the air for NBC Sports television since the early 1980s.
