Author's Note: How Zambonis Work

Although vaguely aware that Zamboni was a person, I found myself charmed with the can-do legend of Frank Zamboni. It's rare to find an inventor, manufacturer and businessman who is successful in all ventures, and you can't help appreciating his determination to create the right machine for his own rink. A man who is well-deserving of his doodle.
