Start your day with an adrenaline rush of sports glory. Each page celebrates astounding plays, dramatic upsets, fierce rivalries, and record-breaking feats of pure athleticism from a wide range of sports. A breakdown of the longest ever pro baseball game, a 33-inning marathon featuring future Hall of Famers Cal Ripken Jr. and Wade Boggs in 1981. An eccentric tidbit about Fred McLaughlin, the NHL owner who hired a stranger he met on the train to coach his team. A thrilling account of Joe Montana’s heroic touchdown to give the 49ers a Super Bowl win over the Bengals in the last minute. Plus trivia, droll words, and quotes, like this one from Arnold Palmer: "I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game—it’s called an eraser." A perfect gift for sports lovers of all kinds.
