Pat Summerall has been in the forefront of sports in America for four decades. Once a kicker for the New York Giants, he was the mainstay of the CBS Sports broadcasting team for 32 years, covering 22 Super Bowls, 26 U.S. Opens, and 28 Masters golf tournaments. Today, he and John Madden form what many believe to be the strongest sportscasting team in history.
In Pat Summerall's Sports in America, he gathers together interviews he's had with the giants of football, baseball, tennis, boxing, and the other top spectator sports in the country. Entertaining, inspiring, and sometimes eye-opening, these pieces provide a revealing look at the sports superstars of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. (In a telling talk, for instance, O.J. Simpson explains the reason he decided to pursue football instead of baseball.) He also includes interviews with top literati, such as George Will, who give readers a fascinating perspective of sports' significance in American life. Numerous photographs round out this irresistible book, making it a must for the shelves of all sports fans.
