Tales from the Gonzaga Bulldogs Locker Room: A Collection of the Greatest Bulldog Stories Ever Told (Tales from the Team)

Tales from the Gonzaga Bulldogs Locker Room: A

It’s the mom-and-pop store that has become a national franchise. The most renowned player in school history grew up three blocks from the cozy campus, yet the program has grown into a perennial top 25 power with a coast-to-coast following—even if those casual fans still mangle the name. It’s Gonzaga University—"Gon-zag-a"—as in "Zags," the endearment that has overtaken "Bulldogs" as the school’s athletic ID. There are many Bulldogs, but only a few Zags. There are many Zags stories, however, and fans will find the essence of this college basketball phenomenon in Tales from the Gonzaga Bulldogs Locker Room.For readers who only know Gonzaga as the school that launched John Stockton toward the Basketball Hall of Fame and later rewrote the concept of being an NCAA Tournament Cinderella, this anecdotal anthology will fill in the blanks. The book focuses on a variety of names and events, like the "Tall Gaul"—seven-foot-three Frenchman Jean Claude Lefebvre; the year the Zags actually pulled their "sixth man" out of the stands; and Frank Burgess, the future judge who led the nation in scoring. These stories are all a part of the little-known legacy that led to the modern-day heroics of Dan Dickau, Richie Frahm, Blake Stepp, and many others. Fans will meet them all, along with nu...

This Is Your Brain on Sports: The Science of Underdogs, the Value of Rivalry, and What We Can Learn from the T-Shirt Cannon

This Is Your Brain on Sports: The Science

This is Your Brain on Sports is the book for sports fans searching for a deeper understanding of the games they watch and the people who play them.  Sports Illustrated executive editor and bestselling author L. Jon Wertheim teams up with Tufts psychologist Sam Sommers to take readers on a wild ride into the inner world of sports.  Through the prism of behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology, they reveal the hidden influences and surprising cues that inspire and derail us—on the field and in the stands—and by extension, in corporate board rooms, office settings, and our daily lives.  In this irresistible narrative romp, Wertheim and Sommers usher us from professional football to the NBA to Grand Slam tennis, from the psychology of athletes self-handicapping their performance in the boxing ring or the World Series, to an explanation of why even the glimpse of a finish line can lift us beyond ordinary physical limits.  They explore why Tom Brady and other starting NFL quarterbacks all seem to look like fashion models; why fans of teams like the Cubs, Mets, and any franchise from Cleveland love rooting for a loser; why the best players make the worst coaches; why hockey goons (and fans) would rather fight at home than on the road; and why the arena t-shirt cannon ...

The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football

The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time

A Shelf Awareness Best Book of the Year NCAA football is big business. Every Saturday millions of people file into massive stadiums or tune in on television as "athlete-students" give everything they've got to make their team a success. Billions of dollars now flow into the game. But what is the true cost? The players have no share in the oceans of money. And once the lights go down, the glitter doesn't shine so brightly. Filled with mind-blowing details of major NCAA football scandals, with stops at Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Missouri, BYU, LSU, Texas A&M and many more, The System explores and exposes the complex, and perhaps broken, machine that churns behind the glamour of college football. With a New Afterword

Make it Happen

Make it

When I was a high school player in Lyons, New York, Bob Duffy was a nearby legendary player. Later in my life I see why he was so successful in many ways (academic, coaching, business, and, most importantly, philanthropy.) A great instructional read.—Jim Boeheim, Basketball Hall of Famer and head coach of the men's basketball team at Syracuse University Bob Duffy had amazing opportunities during his time as an NBA player, but that’s just one aspect of a longer, inspirational story. It began when Duffy was still a little kid, dreaming of one day playing professional basketball in Madison Square Garden. Despite being told that he wasn’t “college material,” Duffy would prove everyone wrong and not only matriculate at Colgate University but launch several long and successful careers—all made possible by his grit and determination. In Make It Happen!,Duffy and co-author Natalie June Reilly tell the tale of how he went from an unassuming kid in Katonah, New York, to an NBA basketball player, wildly successful businessman, and philanthropist. Duffy had the inner strength and the outer support needed to “make it happen,” and he hopes to inspire you to do the same in your life.

The Boys from Old Florida: Inside Gator Nation

The Boys from Old Florida: Inside Gator

In The Boys from Old Florida, Buddy Martin takes the reader beneath the surface of Florida football as, without bias or sugar coating, he skillfully excavates the truths behind “The Gator Nation.” In this book, Martin, a Florida native, has chronicled the real stories of Gator coaches and players through their own eyes and in their words over a 55-year period since 1950—and not all are valentines. The school asked all but one of the coaches interviewed to leave or move up. Some players became estranged or never really felt appreciated. Yet, others are forever grateful for their experience as Gator players and feel a sense of brotherhood. Liberating moments such as the arrival of Ray Graves come to life through the words of somebody who experienced it firsthand. Martin’s fresh investigations have bolstered his sharp memory of those moments as they unfolded, including Graves’s firing after a fairy tale season with his “Super Sophs.”
