Green Bay replay : the Packers' return to glory by Dick Schaap( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1967 Dick Schaap and Jerry Kramer wrote the definitive work on the Vince Lombardi-era Green Bay Packers. Entitled Instant Replay, the book sold two million copies and became the standard by which all other sports books were measured. Now with "Green Bay Replay" Dick Schaap revisits the revitalized Green Bay Packers. "Green Bay Replay" is three compelling stories in one. The first is of one of sports' most heralded franchises, winner of numerous NFL championships, the first two Super Bowls and the second most popular merchandising logo in the NFL. The second is of a town of less than 100,000 that lives and breathes Packers football and has sold out every home game for decades ... even when the Packers went through a slump of longer than 20 years. And the third is of the building of a new dynasty, led by coach Mike Holmgren, quarterback Brett Favre and defensive end Reggie White, culminating in victory at Super Bowl XXXI. Written with unparalleled access to all members of the Packers organization, "Green Bay Replay" is the definitive look at football's most jubilant story -- presented with the warmth and insight that make Dick Schaap a singular sports chronicler

Gay Olympian : the life and death of Dr. Tom Waddell by Tom Waddell( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He was a true Renaissance man - an outstanding college athlete, a first-rate military and civilian doctor, a member of the 1968 U.S. Olympic team, a leader in the American gay community, and the father of a young girl." "This is the story of Tom Waddell, who was born to a working-class family in New Jersey but left his troubled home as a teenager, a time when he began to realize that he might be homosexual. He found refuge in the company of Hazel and Gene Waddell, former vaudevillians who encouraged and embraced him, and at Springfield College, a jock's school where he was the ultimate jock - and where he courted women, despite his instincts to the contrary. After college he went on to medical school, and served in the army as a doctor. While in the service he tried out for and made the Olympic squad and in Mexico City finished sixth in the decathlon, the most difficult track-and-field event. Had he run a little more swiftly, he would have claimed the gold medal." "Tom's life continued to be remarkable thereafter. He was for several years a physician to the Saudi Arabian royal court, he practiced medicine in San Francisco and came out to the world in the pages of People magazine, and in 1982 he organized the Gay Games, which are now a successful quadrennial occasion. Then he decided to father a child with a like-minded lesbian woman, and a year later a beautiful girl was born to them. Not long afterward, Waddell developed AIDS, and he spent several harrowing years battling the disease before his death in 1987."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-five seasons after shattering baseball's sacred standard for career home runs, the game's most overlooked superstar bangs out the kind of celebratory volume his brilliant career deserves. While Hank Aaron is a center-stage contributor throughout this rich testament of words and images, its real power is in the all-star lineup that goes to bat for his achievements--both on and off the field. Names from within and beyond baseball, teammates and opponents alike--Jimmy Carter, Bob Gibson, Warren Spahn, Rachel Robinson, Jesse Jackson, Yogi Berra, Bob Costas, and Willie Mays for starters--all tip their caps to a man of uncanny consistency, persistence, and modesty. He needed all of that, of course, to chase down Babe Ruth
