On December 28, 1958, the New York Giants played the Baltimore Colts at Yankee Stadium for the NFL Championship, the first ever NFL game to go into sudden death overtime. The game was televised nationally, a rarity in 1958, and featured players and coaches whose names are among the most well-known in the legend and lore of football: Frank Gifford, Alan Ameche, Sam Huff, Andy Robustelli, Tom Landry, Johnny Unitas, Rosie Grier, and Alex Webster. For the first edition of the book Klein formed chapters around interviews with twelve prominent players, five of whom have since died. The 50th anniversary edition contains new interviews with players left out of the first edition—Frank Gifford, Art Donovan, and Ray Perkins. As well as a "where are they now?" update on all the players mentioned.

In the late spring of 1950, eleven young immigrants' sons, most of them strangers to each other, came together for the love and fun of a game of soccer. They came from Missouri, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New York, from jobs in canneries, brickyards, post offices, classrooms, and bars, to play for their country in the 1950 World Cup, resulting in what has since been called, by scores of sources for more than forty years, the greatest upset victory in the history of American sports. But no one in America at the time paid attention. Their only public honor--roughly twenty minutes' worth--was from a throng of strangers in a Brazilian mining town. Geoffrey Douglas's The Game of Their Lives is the story of the lives of these men: their jobs, wives, sweethearts, neighborhoods, the innocence of their era, the anonymity in which they worked and played. It is the story of heroism, stoicism, and simple unsung grace. Of a time before television, endorsement contracts, movie rights for serial killers, and seven-figure idols who denigrate us all. And ultimately--though it is not a sports story--it is the story of a game, played brilliantly. A single game of soccer, the greater game of life.

In this bestselling timeless classic, Peter Gzowski recounts the 1980-81 season he spent travelling around the NHL circuit with the Edmonton Oilers. These were the days when the young Oilers, led by a teenaged Wayne Gretzky, were poised on the edge of greatness, and about to blaze their way into the record books and the consciousness of a nation. While the story of the early Oilers embodies the book, The Game of Our Lives is much more than a retelling of one season in the life of an NHL team. Unlike any book ever written in the annals of hockey, Gzowski beautifully weaves together the anatomy of a modern NHL team with the magnificent history of the game to create one of the best books about hockey in Canada. Here are the great teams and the great players through the ages—Morenz, Richard, Howe, Orr, Hull—the men whose rare and indefinable genius on the ice exemplified the speed, grit and innovation of the game. The Game of Our Lives is the best book on the Canadian passion for hockey; a wondrously perceptive account of the hold the game has on Canadians. —Jack Granatstein, The National Post

The Game of Life & Relationships is meant for men and women who know how to fall in love, but find it difficult to rise in love and relationships; the powerless, meek and unsuccessful, who continue to be dominated by the powerful, manipulative and arrogant; the rich and famous whose lives are replete with insecurity and unhappiness; individuals who seldom realize the varied facets of appearances and realities, and discerning people who wish to understand the true meaning of wisdom. The Game of Life & Relationships will provide you over 100 invaluable insights that will help you reflect on important aspects of life and relationships: While opposites attract, it is compatibility that preserves. Failure or adversity shapes the eminent. When weak or powerless avoid convincing. Your secrets should be as safe as valuables in a locker. Many rich and famous people have many houses, but not a single home. The two ubiquitous weapons that women use to overpower most men-tears and beauty. Only an enlightened 'master' will be able to successfully guide you through the opposites of life: Fame and ignominy, profit and loss, happiness and desolation, success and failure.

The President of Williams College faces a firestorm for not allowing the women's lacrosse team to postpone exams to attend the playoffs. The University of Michigan loses $2.8 million on athletics despite averaging 110,000 fans at each home football game. Schools across the country struggle with the tradeoffs involved with recruiting athletes and updating facilities for dozens of varsity sports. Does increasing intensification of college sports support or detract from higher education's core mission? James Shulman and William Bowen introduce facts into a terrain overrun by emotions and enduring myths. Using the same database that informed The Shape of the River, the authors analyze data on 90,000 students who attended thirty selective colleges and universities in the 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s. Drawing also on historical research and new information on giving and spending, the authors demonstrate how athletics influence the class composition and campus ethos of selective schools, as well as the messages that these institutions send to prospective students, their parents, and society at large. Shulman and Bowen show that athletic programs raise even more difficult questions of educational policy for small private colleges and highly selective universities than they do for big-time scholarship-granting schools. They discover that today's athletes, more so than their predecessors, enter college less academically well-prepared and with different goals and values than their classmates--differences that lead to different lives. They reveal that gender equity efforts have wrought large, sometimes unanticipated changes. And they show that the alumni appetite for winning teams is not--as schools often assume--insatiable. If a culprit emerges, it is the unquestioned spread of a changed athletic culture through the emulation of highly publicized teams by low-profile sports, of men's programs by women's, and of athletic powerhouses by small colleges. Shulman and Bowen celebrate the benefits of collegiate sports, while identifying the subtle ways in which athletic intensification can pull even prestigious institutions from their missions. By examining how athletes and other graduates view The Game of Life--and how colleges shape society's view of what its rules should be--Bowen and Shulman go far beyond sports. They tell us about higher education today: the ways in which colleges set policies, reinforce or neglect their core mission, and send signals about what matters.

A story with a big heart about a boy, a coach, the game of baseball, and the game of life. "There are teachers with a rare ability to enter a child's mind; it's as if their ability to get there at all gives them the right to stay forever." There was a turning point in Michael Lewis's life, in a baseball game when he was fourteen years old. The irascible and often terrifying Coach Fitz put the ball in his hand with the game on the line and managed to convey such confident trust in Lewis's ability that the boy had no choice but to live up to it. "I didn't have words for it then, but I do now: I am about to show the world, and myself, what I can do." The coach's message was not simply about winning but about self-respect, sacrifice, courage, and endurance. In some ways, and now thirty years later, Lewis still finds himself trying to measure up to what Coach Fitz expected of him.

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.
