Best of rivals : Joe Montana, Steve Young, and the inside story behind the NFL's greatest quarterback controversy by Adam Lazarus( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Best of Rivals, Adam Lazarus takes readers inside the huddle to deliver the real story behind the greatest quarterback controversy of all time: Joe Montana and Steve Young's battle both on and off the field for the right to lead the San Francisco 49ers. From 1987 to 1992, the two future Hall of Famers spurred each other on to remarkable heights, including three Super Bowl wins and four MVP awards, and elevated the game around them in the process. The two men couldn't have been more different in both personality and playing style, and their rivalry created as much hostility as it did greatness, forcing Montana to prove that he could still compete and Young that he could emerge from his predecessor's shadow. Featuring candid interviews with Montana, Young, Jerry Rice, George Seifert, and many others, Best of Rivals brings to life the story of two sports legends, the golden era of football their rivalry presided over, and the amazing legacy it created

Chasing greatness : Johnny Miller, Arnold Palmer, and the miracle at Oakmont by Adam Lazarus( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1973, a who's who of golf's greats gathered at the Oakmont Country Club for the U.S. Open. Among those favored to win were Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Instead, Johnny Miller--a 26-year-old one-time phenom from San Francisco--astonished the golfing world by edging out the legends and crafting a record-setting 63 to win by a single stroke. Featuring extensive archival and video research and candid interviews with leading golfers of the era, this book captures one of the unlikeliest victories and dramatic sports triumphs of the past half century. Authors Adam Lazarus and Steve Schlossman also chronicle the careers and the lives of six extraordinary figures during golf's modern-day golden era: Miller, Palmer, Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Tom Weiskopf, and John Schlee
Hail to the Redskins : Gibbs, Riggins, the Hogs, and the glory days of D.C.'s football dynasty by Adam Lazarus( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At last, the definitive account of the Redskins' championship decade Based on more than ninety original interviews, here is the rollicking chronicle of the famed Washington Redskins teams of the Joe Gibbs years-one of the most remarkable and unique runs in NFL history. From 1981 to 1992, Gibbs coached the franchise to three Super Bowl victories, making the team the toast of the nation's capital, from the political elite to the inner city, and helping to define one of the sport's legendary eras. Veteran sportswriter Adam Lazarus masterfully charts the Redskins' rise from mediocrity (the franchise had never won a Super Bowl and Gibbs's first year as head coach started with a five-game losing streak that almost cost him his job) to its stretch of four championship games in ten years. What makes their sustained success all the more remarkable, in retrospect, is that unlike the storied championship wins of Joe Montana's 49ers and Tom Brady's Patriots, the Redskins' Super Bowl victories featured a different starting quarterback: Joe Theismann in 1983, the franchise's surprising first championship run; Doug Williams in 1988, a win full of meaning for a majority African American city during a tumultuous era; and Mark Rypien in 1992, capping one of the greatest seasons of all time, one that stands as Gibbs's masterpiece. Hail to the Redskins features an epic roster of saints and sinners: hard-drinking fullback John Riggins; the dominant, blue-collar offensive linemen known as "the Hogs," who became a cultural phenomenon; quarterbacks Williams, the first African American QB to win a Super Bowl, and Theismann, a model-handsome pitchman whose leg was brutally broken by Lawrence Taylor on Monday Night Football; gregarious defensive end Dexter Manley, who would be banned from the league for cocaine abuse; and others including the legendary speedster Darrell Green, record-breaking receiver Art Monk, rags-to-riches QB Rypien, expert general managers and talent evaluators Bobby Beathard and Charley Casserly, aristocratic owner Jack Kent Cooke, and, of course, Gibbs himself, a devout Christian who was also a ruthless competitor and one of the sport's most adaptable and creative coaching minds. A must-read for any fan, Hail to the Redskins builds on Lazarus's interviews with key inside sources to vividly re-create the plays, the players, the fans, and the opponents that shaped this unforgettable football dynasty
The art of building a bunker : a play by Adam Lazarus( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Art of Building a Bunker is a dark, viciously funny story recounting a week in the life of your average Elvis as he endures mandatory workplace sensitivity training. Elvis struggles to meet the demands of Camerson, the sensitivity training leader, and to work with the group that surrounds him without revealing anything about what he really feels or believes. His struggles culminate in a radical oration delivered on the last day of the course to the sensitivity group, workplace colleagues, as well as international luminaries of sensitivity like Nelson Mandela, Geddy Lee, and Malala Yousafzai. Created for Toronto's SummerWorks 2013, Verdecchia explained to Colin Thomas of the Georgia Straight the impulse behind Bunker: "We were just looking around the city and at the culture generally," Verdecchia said - remember that Rob Ford was Toronto's mayor at that time - "and there was a kind of incivility in the air, which I think is still there. It seems like it's permissible to say things that you couldn't say before, like 'Fuck her right in the cunt,' or whatever guys are saying on television." (Verdecchia is referring to the phenomenon that reporter Shauna Hunt very publicly challenged recently.) "There was also this incredible anger on the web, YouTube videos with people ranting about their situations or about Obama - a lot of Americans. They seemed like really disenfranchised folk who were stewing in their anger and fear. And that struck us as really interesting. Adam and I genuinely want to ask about what is permissible." Bunker is to be played by one virtuosic actor."--
