An unconventional tale as wide-ranging as Deford''s remarkable career, in which he has chronicled the heroes and the characters of just about every sport in nearly every medium, from the 1960s until today.
From the Publisher:
A history of American sportswriting by the Emmy Award-winning Sports Illustrated writer traces the lurid early days of the Police Gazette through the current state of ESPN, providing coverage of such personal topics as his stint with the National Sports Daily, his visit to apartheid South Africa with Arthur Ashe and his recent 1,500th commentary on NPR's Morning Edition.
