"Gunslinger tells Brett Favre story for the first time, drawing on more than five hundred interviews, including many from the people closest to Favre. Jeff Pearlman charts an unparalleled journey from his rough rural childhood and lackluster high school football career to landing the last scholarship at Southern Mississippi to a car accident that nearly took his life. Favre clawed back, getting drafted into the NFL by the Atlanta Falcons, then finding his way to Green Bay, where he restored the Packers to greatness and inspired a fan base as passionate as any in the game. Yet he struggled with demons: addiction, infidelity, the loss of his father, and a fraught, painfully prolonged exit from the game he loved, a game he couldn't bear to leave, "--Amazon.com

Football for a buck : the crazy rise and crazier demise of the USFL by Jeff Pearlman( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States Football League--known fondly to millions of sports fans as the USFL--was the last football league to challenge the NFL while causing its owners and executives to collectively shudder. It spanned three seasons, from 1983 to 1985, secured multiple television deals, drew millions of fans, and launched the careers of legends. But then it died beneath the weight of a particularly egotistical and bombastic owner, a New York businessman named Donald J. Trump. The league featured as many as eighteen teams and included such superstars as Steve Young, Jim Kelly, Herschel Walker, Reggie White, Doug Flutie, and Mike Rozier. In Football for a Buck, dogged reporter and biographer Jeff Pearlman draws on more than four hundred interviews to unearth all the salty, untold stories of one of the craziest sports entities ever to have captivated America. From excess drug use to airplane brawls and player-coach punch-outs, to backroom business deals, to some of the most enthralling and revolutionary football ever seen, Pearlman transports readers back in time to this crazy, boozy, audacious, and unforgettable era of the game. He shows how fortunes were made and lost on the backs of professional athletes, and how, even thirty years ago, Trump was a scoundrel and a spoiler"--
The rocket that fell to earth : Roger Clemens and the rage for baseball immortality by Jeff Pearlman( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first biography of Roger Clemens is an account of the rise and fall of one of the greatest modern-day baseball players and arguably the best pitcher of all time. From his obscure youth as a pudgy, unremarkable nobody in suburban Ohio to the mounds of Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium, Roger "Rocket" Clemens is an American icon. His athletic prowess aside, Clemens also embodies a fascinating dichotomy in American culture. To thousands of fans, Clemens is a tobacco-chewing, fastball-throwing legend who walks with the giants of the world. To many others, he is a gun-toting, Republican-voting, steroid-using pedophile who stalked Charlize Theron. Here, sportswriter Jeff Pearlman delivers an exhaustively researched biography that explores who Roger Clemens is; what he means to our country; and how his rise to baseball stardom and fall to personal humiliation speaks volumes about the current state of sport in America.--From publisher description

The bad guys won : [a season of brawling, boozing, bimbo-chasing, and championship baseball with Straw, Doc, Mookie, Nails, the Kid, and the rest of the 1986 Mets, the rowdiest team to put on a New York uniform, and maybe the best] by Jeff Pearlman( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time, twenty-four grown men would play baseball together, eat together, carouse together, and brawl together. Alas, those hard-partying warriors have been replaced by GameBoy-obsessed, laptop-carrying, corporate soldiers who would rather punch a clock than a drinking buddy. But it wasn't always this way ... In The Bad Guys Won, award-winning former Sports Illustrated baseball writer Jeff Pearlman returns to an innocent time when a city worshipped a man named Mookie and the Yankess were the second-best team in New York. So it was in 1986, when the New York Mets -- the last of baseball's live-like-rock-star teams -- won the World Series and captured the hearts (and other select body parts) of fans everywhere. But their greatness on the field was nearly eclipsed by how bad they were off it. Led by the indomitable Keith Hernandez and the young dynamic duo of Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry, along with the gallant Scum Bunch, the Amazin's won 108 regular-season games, while leaving a wide trail of wreckage in their wake -- hotel rooms, charter planes, a bar in Houston, and most famously Bill Buckner and the eternally cursed Boston Red Sox. With an unforgettable cast of characters -- Doc, Straw, the Kid, Nails, Mex, and manager Davey Johnson (as well as innumerable groupies) -- The Bad Guys Won immortalizes baseball's last great wild bunch of explores what could have been, what should have been, and thanks to a tragic dismantling of the club, what never was
