Some of the games described in this unique book involve championships, while others seem ordinary save for extraordinary personal meaning. In each case, it is the legendary 49ers player who singles out the game, the moment in time that to him is the most defining of his professional football career. Each player has his own unique story, but together they weave a tapestry of pro football and 49ers history in San Francisco. In Game of My Life San Francisco 49ers, Roger Craig, Steve Young, and Jerry Rice recount their respective Super Bowl experiences. John Brodie, Garrison Hearst, R. C. Owens, and Frank Gore are just a few of the players, past and present, who also offer their firsthand accounts.

For the city of Cleveland and the fans of the Browns, it’s not just a football team: it’s a way of life. From rabid fan clubs all around the country to fans around Northeast Ohio wearing the colors of the brown and orange, time stops when the Browns take the field each week. The team joined the NFL in 1950 and won a championship in their first year in the league, and went on to win three more, the last of which was 1964 when they shutout the Baltimore Colts 27-0 at Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Since then fans have been waiting, through good years and bad, for the glory to return to the Browns franchise. They have had to endure the harshest of defeats, losing three times to the Denver Broncos in the 1980’s on the doorstep of playing in their first Super Bowl. They also had to live out the nightmare of their franchise being ripped away during the 1995 season, as then owner Art Modell moved them to Baltimore in one of the most shocking moves in NFL history. This book will give you an idea of the fanfare and the love that former players and fans have for the Cleveland Browns. Read as Bernie Kosar, Ozzie Newsome, Don Cockcroft, Eric Metcalf, and other beloved players remember the glory days, with exciting trips to the postseason. You’ll understand after reading this just how much Cleveland loves its football team, and how the players feel the same.

When Bart Starr snuck across the goal line in the withering cold of Lambeau Field to beat the Dallas Cowboys in 1967. "The Ice Bowl" became the greatest game in Green Bay Packers history. Unless, of course, it was the NFC championship win over the Carolina Panthers in 1997 that sent the Packers back to the Super Bowl for the first time in 30 years. Maybe it was that mind-bending 48-47 Monday night win over the Washington Redskins in 1983, or perhaps it was the Western Conference title win over the Baltimore Colts in 1965 on an overtime field goal that Colts players to this day say was no good. It could also have been any one of Green Bay's three Super Bowl wins or the victory over the San Francisco 49ers in 1995 that cemented the Packers as a force in the NFL once again. Maybe it was any one of a number of games against their ancient rivals, the Chicago Bears, or maybe it was as recently as the 2003 NFC playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks or Brett Favre's remarkable performance after his father died. Maybe it wasn't even a Packers victory that earned its way into history. Perhaps that's the beauty of a franchise with such a long and lyrical history as the Packers--so many big games and so many opportunities to pick the ones that really matter. So many years have produced so many games and so many memories. In Chuck Carlson's Game of My Life, former and current players and coaches talk about the best, the most important, the most entertaining, or just the strangest games this franchise has ever played. Some will be obvious choices, but others may tax the memory of even the most stalwart Packers fans. For a franchise steeped in history, tradition, and legend, this book is bound to touchon a game that sits fondly in the hearts of Packers fans everywhere.

Rob Gross is a pop culture junkie whose life had been long guided by his obsessions for the Grateful Dead, Animal House, Godfather II, and the San Diego Chargers. For Rob, college in Western New York is a blissful mélange of malt liquor, bootleg tapes, casual sex, and fraternity "one-piece" parties. Life becomes more challenging when the Dead's Jerry Garcia dies and Rob gets fired from his first post-graduate job that he had grown to despise. Without the benefit of a playbook, and after much trial and tribulation, Rob ultimately finds a career and the woman of his dreams in New York City and learns that settling down isn't the same thing as settling.ADVANCE PRAISE FOR DRUNK ON SUNDAY "You don't have to be a Chargers fan to relate to Ross Warner.

For five years, Psychiatrist David McWhirter and psychologist Andrew Mattison conducted in-depth interviews with male couples whose relationships have lasted from one to thirty-seven years. The study documents how the relationships between two men develop and are sustained. While conducted as an objective study, the book is written in an engagingly anecdotal style. Men talk about their loves, hates, fears, and dreams. They also discuss their family lives, early relationships (in some cases, marriage), hiding one's sexual identity, and coming out.

Rarely does anyone use the term “two-way” in regard to a baseball player. Yet the Los Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani, at the young age of twenty-three, has become the epitome of the term, drawing comparisons to Babe Ruth by baseball pundits everywhere. After being drafted by the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of the Japan Pacific League with the number-one pick in 2012, the eighteen-year-old Ohtani struggled with the bat during his rookie season. However, he had a breakout year in 2014, posting a 2.61 ERA in 24 starts and 179 strikeouts (as well as 10 home runs). By 2017, all thirty Major League Baseball teams had heard about the Japanese phenom and expressed interest in signing him. Ultimately, the Angels offered him the opportunity to compete as a two-way player and the chance to accomplish his professional goals. After a quiet spring training, Ohtani broke out in the first two weeks of the 2018 regular season, becoming just the 14th pitcher in major-league history to strike out 12 batters in one of his first two starts. He also homered in three consecutive games during that stretch. Shohei Ohtani: The Amazing Story of Baseball’s Two-Way Japanese Superstar tells the story of the player from rural Japan who became a two-way star not seen in America since Babe Ruth. With highlights of his best games on the mound and at bat from each month of his rookie season and anecdotes of his life in America, this is the one book that every fan will want.
