Abstract:

Yes, if it's Tuesday it must be the Knicks versus the Timberwolves! Marv Albert is one of the most popular sports announcers in America, and he's definitely the busiest. But somehow, perhaps on a red-eye between Cleveland and Sacramento, he has found the time to write a book. In this one slim volume Marv has packed dozens of backstage stories from his nearly thirty seasons broadcasting the New York Knicks' basketball games and the New York Rangers' hockey games, plus.

God-knows-how-many road trips doing the NBA, NFL, boxing, and Olympics on NBC, not to mention all those years trying to fit in the 6 o'clock and 11 o'clock sports news on WNBC TV in New York, plus a few stories about his remarkable string of brothers and offspring, one of whom now does play-by-play for every single professional sports team in America. With individual chapters devoted to the highlights of modern sports history - " Life is a Non-Title Bout in Maracaibo,"

"The Fifty-Yard Chair Throw and Other Olympic Events," and of course "A Few Fries Short of a Happy Meal" - keen insights into the complex characters of Marv's colleagues - from the "Fight Doctor" Ferdie Pacheco to Mike "the Czar of the telestrator" Fratello - and a few choice words for every sports star from Michael Jordan to Muhammad Ali (not to mention such luminaries as Bubbles Hawkins and Vampire Johnson), this is a book no serious sports fan will want to miss,

unless he's out mowing the lawn. And as if that's not enough, I'd Love to but I Have a Game features an introduction by David Letterman plus chapter introductions by Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Lewis, Bob Costas, Bill Parcells, and just about anybody else who wanted a chance to insult Marv.
