Overview

Joe Tait is like a family friend to three generations of Cleveland sports fans. This book celebrates his Hall-of-Fame broadcasting career with stories from Joe and dozens of fans, media colleagues, and players. He was "the Voice of the Cleveland Cavaliers." But to fans, Joe was also "one of us." Cavs basketball, Indians baseball, or Mount Union football, he made the game come alive, and wasn't afraid to speak his mind--even when it might get him in trouble with the coach or the owner. He inspired a generation of young broadcasters, and phrases he invented became part of the common language of Northeast Ohio sports.These stories will make you feel like you're sharing a personal play-by-play recap with one of the best announcers in all of sports.
