Q: Mark, (if that is your real name), while leafing through some foggy brain cells that are scattered on the basement floor of my parents house, I recalled an article about the origin of ice hockey. Something about how it was a favorite pastime of slaves in the hot days of summer in the master’s icehouse. Any clue as to what issue this story is from?
A: Well, of course it’s my real name. Why would you think otherwise? Anyway, several people chimed in on this one, but Carol nails it: “Soul on Ice:the Untold story of the Negro Hockey League” by Tony Kisch, in the December 1988 (Playboy Wars) issue.
