Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385517467, Hardcover)It’s The Big Question in the world of sports: Who’s number one?
Which player? Which coach? Which team? Now, the authors of the acclaimed New York Times bestseller, The Mad Dog 100: The Greatest Sports Arguments of All Time, get down and dirty to tackle the central issue that consumes every sports fan: Which players, teams, venues, and moments would make the top-ten list of all time?
With characteristic candor, explosive energy, and unquestioned expertise, top-rated sports talk radio personality Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo tackles the tough questions head-on and creates his own personal Hall of Fame. But the Mad Dog sets the bar much higher than usual—only ten honorees are inducted in each category—so plenty of all-time greats will find themselves on the outside looking in.
Russo ranks Lou Gehrig, Willie Mays, and Walter Johnson...and one of them doesn’t even make the cut. He ranks Jerry Rice and Dick Butkus and Mean Joe Greene...and try telling one of them he’ll have to pay admission to get into this Hall of Fame. He takes sides and ranks Fenway Park ahead of Yankee Stadium...or will it be the other way around? He names the single greatest sports moment of all time, across all sports...and no, it’s not what you think.
Each enticing chapter is packed full of intriguing facts and sidebars, including tidbits that will surprise even the most seasoned sports fan. The magic of Russo’s analysis is not just an explanation of who makes the cut and who does not--but why. The Mad Dog Hall of Fame is essential reading--the kind of book every sports enthusiast will want to have on hand as a quick reference guide to the best of the best. Russo and St. John have crafted an entertaining, fast-paced, and provocative tour of the world of sports, chock-full of close calls and tough choices designed not to end arguments...but to start them.
