Publisher's Summary

Steve Dangle’s incredible odyssey, from self-starting Leafs lover to sports-media star.

How do you turn ranting about hockey into a career? Steve “Dangle” Glynn is a YouTuber, podcaster, and sports personality from Toronto who managed to turn a 16-second online rant about the Maple Leafs into a career in sports media. From video blogging in his parents’ house at 19 to yelling on televisions across Canada at 28, Dangle has been involved with some of the most important sports companies in the country. 

In between tales of Steve’s adventures, both online and off, This Team Is Ruining My Life is also a kind of how-to (or how-not-to) guide: in an ever-evolving media landscape, sometimes, you have to get creative to find the job you want. This is Steve Dangle and his accidentally-on-purpose journey through sports media so far.

What the critics say

“Folks always say to me, ‘When Coach’s Corner is on, no one in our house is allowed to talk.’ I reply, ‘Neither am I.’ Now I find myself hushing my own household when Steve is on. Steve says he’s taken a page from us, but I know it’s novel. Enjoy.” (Ron MacLean, Coach’s Corner)

“A wonderful look at the rickety ladder to success in sports media and how one can invent their own way of climbing it. Revel in Steve’s journey from irritated Leafs fan yelling into a webcam to irritated Leafs fan yelling into much more expensive cameras.” (Greg Wyshynski, senior NHL writer, ESPN) 

“A hilarious, inspiring account of how a kid who could barely skate managed to navigate a turbulent period in the Canadian media industry to become one of the most unique voices in our sport.” (Chris Johnston, senior hockey writer, Sportsnet)

This book is improving my life and I loved it!

Love the Leafs and love that Steve voices all that we feel, the highs, lows and frustration. This is a feel good book that gave us an insight into the inner workings of the LFR king.

Thanks Steve!

Steve Dangle introduced me to hockey this September and, thanks to his podcast, I've been able to listen to him (and his screaming) every day since.
For those who have a similar adoration for Steve as I do, "This Team is Ruining my Life" will make you further appreciate this YouTuber turned high-profile hockey media member. For those who will be introduced to Steve through this book, welcome to the world of a truly great guy who knows his hockey good.

I'm sorry, Steve, but I had to. Hope you don't mind the joking jab in the review. - An inspired fan

perfect narration for a wonderful book

I read this book before I got to listen, but this performance made the book even better. I don't think anyone can tell Steve's stories as well as he can. He's one of the most passionate people out there, which is kind of the basis of the stories (hello, guy who yells into a camera). You can hear his happiness with good stories, the frustration with others. You can hear his love anytime he talks about SL. It's the perfect narration for a wonderful book.

Steve tells his life story (so far)

Steve’s memoir is already lively just on the page, but due to it being narrated by the man itself it makes it all the more authentic. The story will make you laugh, cry, and want to hug this man for all that he has been through.
