Summary
One of America's most respected sportscasters?and the play-by-play voice of NBC's Sunday Night Football?gives us a behind-the-curtain look at some of the most thrilling games and fascinating figures in modern sports. No sportscaster has covered more major sporting events than Al Michaels. During the course of his forty-plus-year career, he has logged more hours on live primetime network television than anyone in history, having covered all four major sports championships?the Super Bowl, the World Series, the NBA finals, and the Stanley Cup final?as well as the Olympic Games, the Triple Crown, and many more. He has witnessed firsthand some of the most memorable events in sports, and in this highly personal and entertaining account, he brings them all vividly to life. Michaels's stories cover unforgettable chapters over the past half century?from the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics' "Miracle on Ice" to the earthquake that rocked the 1989 World Series to the drama of what many consider the most exciting Super Bowl ever?Super Bowl XLIII between the Steelers and the Cardinals. Some of the biggest personalities on and off the field are here?Pete Rose, John Wooden, Brett Favre, Tommy Lasorda, O. J. Simpson, John Madden, Cris Collinsworth, Roone Arledge, Bill Parcells, Tiger Woods, Doc Rivers, Dennis Miller, and many, many more. Complementing access with insight, Michaels adds to the stories you thought you knew: Michael Jordan's eyesight; Howard Cosell's prickly, bombastic personality; even Peyton and Eli Manning's sibling rivalry. From start to finish, Al Michaels gives us an up-close portrait of an industry that is?today more than ever?a vital part of our national culture
Summary
An eight-time Emmy Award-winning broadcaster interweaves the story of his life and career with lively tales of major events and engaging figures in modern sports, from the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" finals to the 1989 World Series earthquake
