The Great American Sports Page: A Century Of Classic Columns From Ring Lardner To Sally Jenkins

Author(s): John Schulian, editor
Spanning nearly a century, this collection presents columns from more than three dozen masters of the press-box craft. These unforgettable dispatches from World Series, Super Bowls, and title bouts for the ages were written on deadline with passion, spontaneity, humor, and a gift for the memorable phrase. Read day in and day out by a sports-mad public, these columnists became journalistic celebrities in their home cities, their coverage trusted and savored, their opinions hotly debated. Here their writings capture some of sport's most enduring moments and many of its all-time greats. But the best American sportswriters also could write powerfully about lesser-known athletes and to convey the less glamorous and more tragic facets of the games we love.
