The Great Book of Detroit Sports Lists
Great Book of Detroit Sports Lists by Mike Stone
Book DescriptionSports talk in America has evolved from small-time barroom banter into a major media smorgasbord that runs 24/7 on TV and radio. With hundreds of billions of dollars generated annually by pro and college teams in major markets nationwide, sports fans across the country are more dedicated than ever to their teams. And when it comes to sports talk-especially all-sports radio-its all about entertainment, information, prognostication, analysis, rankings, and endless discussion. Prominent sports-media figures in each of the three target cities-Cleveland, Detroit, and Washington, D. C. -engage in this phenomenon with a compilation of sports lists sure to delight as well as stir up debate within these already-buzzing sports communities. List topics include: * What were the most lopsided trades in local sports history? * Who were the most overrated athletes to play in our town? * What local athlete had the best appearance in TV or film? * What was the most heartbreaking loss in local sports history? * What was the greatest single play in local sports history? * Who are our teams most hated rivals? * Plus dozens of guest lists contributed by famous local sports and entertainment celebrities. Not only does Detroit host major pro sports teams-the Lions (NFL), the Red Wings (NHL), the Tigers (MLB), and the Pistons (NBA)-the area also includes prominent college sports programs such as the University of Michigan. Detroits fans are some of the most educated and fanatical in the country, thanks to the work of long-time commentators Mike Stone and Art Regner.
