Abstract:

America's most visible sports commentator tells the stories of some of the most dramatic moments in American sports and pays tribute to the man who inspired him to pursue his broadcasting dream--his beloved father, now a victim of Alzheimer's disease. Nantz traces his career, from his imaginary studio as a boy to his college days rooming with future PGA Tour golfers to his successful network audition at age 26. In recounting the highlights of more than two thrilling decades with CBS Sports, he recalls the legends of the industry who sparked his imagination and shaped his style. Along the way, readers are treated to an array of memories, including Nantz's special relationship with the former president George H.W. Bush, as well as his friendships with sports royalty. Poignant stories that explore the theme of fathers and sons who have bonded through a common love of sports complete this sparkling narrative.--From publisher description.
