Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
When they're not busy beating deadlines, Newsday sports correspondent David Lennon and Daily News reporter Roger Rubin enjoy sparring a few rounds over important issues that almost every New Yorker can understand: Is George Steinbrenner really an archfiend? Would Namath put Simms in the shadow? Can a true Mets fan root for the Yankees, too? These 50 lively debates by two longtime friends cover baseball, football, basketball, boxing, and the New York Marathon. Raucous fun.
