Why My Wife Thinks I'm an Idiot: The Life and Times of a Sportscaster Dad

From Publishers Weekly
SportsCenter and ESPN Radio mainstay Greenberg wanted to be a journalist, but changed his mind when he was asked, while working at a smalltown newspaper, to interview the mother of a high school valedictorian who had just tragically died. Greenberg moved on to covering sports and never looked back, believing there's nothing better than "investing everything into something that means absolutely nothing." Indeed, his book resembles Seinfeld, with its lightly humorous yet serious renditions of everyday minutiae. Divided into transcripts from some of Greenberg's radio monologues and journal entries about his family life, the book is another entry in the Men Are from Mars... school of sociological observation. Greenberg's viewpoint on the opposite sex essentially involves his subtitle: describing the things he does...

Book Review
"My mom gave a couple of dollars to a woman who was in desperate need of milk for her family. In return, the woman gave my mom a gunnysack full of things, including a pair of skates. My sister Edna grabbed one and I got the other. We went outside and push-glided around an ice pond. When Edna got cold and took her skate off, I put it on my other foot." So begins the story of one of the greatest--and toughest--men to ever play the game of ice hockey, Gordie Howe. Or try Bobby Hull: "We won the Stanley Cup in 1961 when I was 22 years old... but I never did drink out of the Stanley Cup. As the festivities began, I started drinking beer out of the owner's son Mike Wirtz's dirty old felt hat. I got sick as a dog and had to go to bed instead of celebrating that night." For the Love of Hockey collects the...

Book Description
"Maybe it was fitting that the best young player in the game scored the goal in overtime. Everyone always talks about passing the torch. He caught it."--Wayne Gretzky, after his final game, about Jaromir Jagr

He's Gretzky's heir apparent, a formidable skater with powerful stick-handling skills. 28-year-old right-winger Jaromir Jagr--with an Olympic gold medal, two Stanley Cups, and three NHL scoring championships to his credit--has already shown the hockey world that he's the best. Young hockey fans will love hearing how Jagr came to dominate the sport: the trick he used to developed his strong stride (with no fancy equipment!); the earliest games he played; how he gained international fame, and the secrets of his success. Breathtaking photos capture this superstar in action.

Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Nov. 2000
"He's a winner, his book is a winner."

Book Description
His name is William Dickenson Hunter, but to generations of Canadian sports fans he’s known best as Wild Bill. Part showman, salesman, rebel, visionary, and 100 percent lover of the game of hockey, Bill Hunter has been witness to and part of the lore and the history of Canadian sports for over six decades. Bill Hunter formed his first team at age 17, when he toured a baseball club through dust-bowl Saskatchewan.
