Minnesota Sports Alamanac by Joel A. Rippel

Book Description

To be hoisted on your teammates' shoulders after a championship win? To nail the perfect serve? To conquer the wilderness with a pack of dogs in the fore? To crush the Packers? To dust off your pompoms and skip onto the field? To take home the trivia trophy from your local sports bar? Whatever your athletic aspiration, 'Minnesota Sports Almanac' is the book for you. Spanning 125 years of feats and follies, this groundbreaking sports bible has it all. Rippel offers the comprehensive history of men's and women's sports from high school and amateur to pro. The North Star State's big four -- football, baseball, basketball, and hockey -- are packed here with just about every sport championed by Minnesota's own, including golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, soccer, tennis, gymnastics, figure skating, dogsledding, curling, luging, snowmobiling, running, bike racing, auto racing, horse racing, hunting, fishing, swimming, water skiing, volleyball, cheerleading, and more.
