The 100 Greatest Days in New York Sports Book Excerpt:

New York City sports history, like the city itself, is noisy, confident, and endlessly fascinating. This is the city where Joe Louis struck a blow against the Nazis, where major league baseball was integrated, and where marathons and professional tennis came into their own. The 100 Greatest Days in New York Sports, Updated Edition, recounts New York’s greatest sporting moments, from Jackie Robinson integrating baseball to the Ali-Frazier fight to the New York Giants stunning the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. It covers dramatic sporting events involving the likes of Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali, Serena Williams, Reggie Jackson, Dr. J, Joe Namath, and many more. This updated edition features a new, chronological approach to highlight the remarkable history and development of sports in the city and the nation. It also includes many new moments, an updated ranking, and a single list that incorporates events that took place outside the city but involved New York teams. Pick a sport—baseball, football, basketball, boxing, tennis—and in every case New York has had front-row seats for the sport’s major developments and most memorable events. The 100 Greatest Days in New York Sports illuminates how important sports are to the life of New York and the city’s preeminent place in American sports history. It’s about all the “firsts” that occurred here, the many titles that have been won, and all the drama in between.

Denver Broncos New Updated Edition Book Excerpt:

DIVFor more than half a century, the Denver Broncos have provided countless thrills, and a few spills, for their devoted fans. The full story of the Broncos’ wild ride—from a decade of losing seasons to mighty dynastic heights in the 1990s to the latest resurgence on the gridiron—unfolds in all its guts-and-glory drama in this illustrated history. In Denver Broncos: The Complete Illustrated History, author Jim Saccomano recounts how this charter member of the American Football League struggled through its first seasons before emerging as an elite team in the 1970s, reaching its first Super Bowl in January 1978. The arrival of John Elway in 1983 put the Broncos on the road to dynasty, bringing five Super Bowl appearances and back-to-back championships in the late 1990s. Elway’s move to the front office in 2010 was a big step back to greatness for the organization, further sealed in 2012 with the signing of future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning. To this day, the team’s winning ways draw raucous sellout crowds to Sports Authority Field at Mile High./divDIV/divDIVSaccomano offers a fascinating look at one of football’s most beloved teams, from its early years as Denver’s only major sports franchise, through legendary on-field moments like “The Drive,” to the stars of today. Profiles of star players, season recaps, details of crucial games and plays, and the stories behind the great teams are complemented by hundreds of color and black-and-white images documenting the team’s history, making this the ultimate collection for any true Denver Broncos fan./div

Of Myths and Sticks Book Excerpt:

As engaging as the great game itself, the stories behind the National Hockey League are entertaining, fascinating and, at times, unbelievable. Faux facts emerge from urban legends, conspiracy theories and coincidences, leaving sports fans to debate truth and fiction in the world of hockey trivia. Few are better qualified to both debunk falsehoods and nail down amazing facts than TSN stats archaeologist Kevin Gibson, whose book Of Myths and Sticks blows the whistle on all hockey matters from the mainstream to the obscure. What was the date of the first NHL game? Who scored the first goal and which team won? Did Gordie Howe ever actually have a Gordie Howe hat trick? Gibson offers definitive answers to these fundamental questions, but also contributes fascinating background nobody else thought to ask about, such as game-time weather, contract disputes and the flu epidemic that claimed the lives of two players and cancelled the 1919 Stanley Cup Final. Gibson scores laughs with true facts from between the posts, noting that legendary Canadiens goalie Georges Vezina sired 24 children (“he was known for saves on the ice and scoring off”), and that the Quebec Bulldogs’ shameful record of 4–20 may have been due, in part, to the worst nickname ever for a goaltender (“Holes”). The myth of the Original Six is down-sized to the Original One, as Gibson points out that the Montreal Canadiens is the only team to have been around at the start of the NHL and to have retained their original team name. Other highlights include hall-of-famers, hall-of-shamers and an extensive “On This Date” chapter that highlights 366 trivia-worthy moments from 95 years of hockey history. Combining extensive research, humor and keen curiosity, Of Myths and Sticks is hockey’s version of MythBusters—what’s true, what’s not, and how can we make finding out almost as entertaining as watching the game.

The Edmonton Oilers Book Excerpt:

The Edmonton Oilers have been one of the most successful and exciting hockey teams during the last twenty years. Led in their glory days by Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Paul Coffey, Jari Kurri, Glenn Anderson, and Grant Fuhr, it is not surprising that the Oilers won five Stanley Cups in seven years. This work is a history of the Edmonton Oilers from 1979, the year the team joined the National Hockey League, through the 2000-2001 season. The first part details each of the Oilers’ seasons and provides complete regular and postseason scoring and goal-tending statistics for each season. The second part presents an alphabetical listing of every player to wear an Oilers uniform and his statistics while playing for the team. There are also sections on the Oilers’ seven years in the World Hockey Association before joining the NHL, team transactions, drafts, player awards, team milestones and records, summaries of all five of the Stanley Cup–winning games, and the Sky Reach Center, home of the Oilers.
