  • 1933 af Mark C. Bodanza Spar 17% E-bog 1933 af Mark C. Bodanza

    In 1933, America was in the midst of the Great Depression. The depth of despair created in the American people earned the panic a singular place in the history of the nations economic turmoil. Football, a uniquely American game, weathered these hard times, adapted, and made some of the pain a little easier to endure. In 1933, author Mark C. Bodanza examines the important role football played in the midst of the nations historic crisis. Bodanza recounts this dramatic year both on and off the field of the professional and college gridirons and analyzes it in the context of the times. He tells the story of a momentous season shared by the high schools of Fitchburg and Leominster, Massachusetts, a rivalry dating back to 1894. In the prior thirty-nine seasons, the teams had played each other forty-nine times. But, 1933 was different; the game had never had such significance. More than ever, Depression-wary Americans needed a reprieve from their cares and concerns. Football provided a welcome relief. Including period photos, 1933 narrates how the sport of footballwhich has created some of the nations most magical moments in sportswas impacted by the Great Depression in a variety of ways, some with lasting consequences.

  • From Behind the Bench af Vinny Pezzimenti Spar 17% E-bog From Behind the Bench af Vinny Pezzimenti

    On a March afternoon in Cleveland, St. Bonaventure battled powerful Kentucky for 40 minutes and two overtimes in the first round of the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Though the Bonnies would lose that day, the moments that accompanied that game provided St. Bonaventure's proud alumni a vast sense of pride. For a men's basketball program that was once considered an elite entity, it was fulfilling return to glory. No one could have envisioned then that St. Bonaventure basketball would endure lowest of lows almost exactly three years later. The St. Bonaventure basketball scandal of 2003 created national headlines and rocked to its core a proud institution. The university president schemed to allow an ineligible player, by NCAA standards, on the court, leading to series of damning events. Victories were forfeited, a team in turmoil quit on its season, several of those involved were fired and the president of the board of trustees, ripped by his role in the sorry state of affairs, committed suicide. As student-managers, we closely witnessed the circumstances that led to the upheaval. We were in the locker room, the coaches offices and on the team bench. We were there for all the corruption, deceit and greed. We were there when an ill-conceived plan came tumbling down in the harshest of manners and St. Bonaventure's lost ways became a punchline across the country.

  • View from the Lake af Mike Yurk Spar 14% E-bog View from the Lake af Mike Yurk

    AView From The Lake is much more then just a book of fishing stories. Yes there are plenty of fish stories but it just as much a book about people and places. There are memories of fishing with a grandfather and father, old and new friends and now a grandson. We travel to waters near and far. We venture to Cozumel for bonefish, Key West for tarpon, and to Canada for walleyes and northern pike. Closer to home we fish for bass and panfish, on the Mississippi River for walleyes, and an ice fishing trip to Lake Of The Woods. There are memories of an island and the adventure of camping there as a young boy, confidence in a favorite bait, the joys of Christmas vacation and the much anticipated arrival of the greatest fishing catalog of all time. The stories also relate the frustration with lawn work during fishing season, the importance of selecting a good fishing hat, and the beauty and memories associated with an old reel. There is a cabin in Minnesota loaded with colorful characters where just being there is more important then catching fish. There is a muskie fishing story from northern Wisconsin that actually begins in Innsbruck, Austria and another story of a mysterious trout stream in North Carolina. There are memories and laughter, lakes and streams and rivers, family and friends, and all the things that make fishing what it is.

    With the prospect of a career-changing opportunity looming, along with a series of other challenges that pop up during the week, Coach Ben Reynolds zeroes in on preparing his Hillmen squad for trying to pull off one of the greatest upsets in his coaching career and a berth in the State Championship game. However Bubba Brown is back--vengeful, desperate, and determined to ruin the man he feels responsible for his demise, Hillsdale High School football coach Ben Reynolds. Jeremy Johnson, once a part-time starter for the Hillmen early in the season, has other goals on his mind, primarily head varsity manager Jennifer Kirby. Yet, his recklessness and audacity create another threat to the squad as they prepare for their ultimate challenge. Running back and linebacker Matt Gerard, a steadying influence both on and off the field for Hillsdale, must choose whats best for him or whats best for his team, as they face a semi-final opponent like no other.

When opportunity beckons, people become judged as to how they respond at that moment. Its no different in Hillsdale, with the chance to be the first team in school history to play for the State Title staring at them right in their faces. How will they respond?

  • Broncos of 1945 af Larry Fullen Spar 17% E-bog Broncos of 1945 af Larry Fullen

    The hardships of the Depression and World War II had taken a toll on the hopes and dreams of Americans everywhere. Central Ohio was no exception. The Ashville High School basketball teams quest for the Ohio Class B state championship in 1945 lifted the hearts and spirits of the residents of the rural communities of Harrison Township in Pickaway County. The Broncos of 1945 describes the experiences of young boys growing up in three neighboring communities who were enjoying the innocence and camaraderie of small-town life while enduring personal sacrifices during the depression era. Playing pickup games of basketball solidified the friendships among these boys through the depression, war, high school, and life beyond. Mentored in the skills of basketball by older brothers, uncles, and cousins; instilled with a competitive spirit through pride of family and community, and inspired by the Bronco basketball tradition of Ashville High School, these boys bonded in their love for the game. They played basketball in the alleys, backyards, and barns regardless of weather or playing conditions. In the sixth grade, new teacher, Lawrence Fullen, a former high school basketball coach at a nearby school, introduced disciplined and team oriented basketball fundamentals to the boys. He built confidence in their abilities and motivates them to give more attention to improving their academics. An unusual turn of events led to Fullen being promoted to high school athletic director in August 1942 and the quest for a state championship begins. The story is authentic. The facts are derived from interviews with players, competitors, students and residents of the communities and documented by stories from newspapers, scrapbooks, and school publications. It is a story of hope. Its a narrative of young boys rising above adversity, beating the odds, and achieving more than societys expectations during a tumultuous time.

    5 C Hero is the inspirational story of Joel Stephens, a truly gifted athlete and devout Christian, who lived the values of Christianity, Courage, Compassion, Character, and Commitment. With the brightest of futures ahead of him, Stephens lost his battle with a rare form of cancer in 1998 at the age of 22. DAloisio, as coach, mentor, and friend, knew Stephens better than most. In this book, he chronicles the record-setting athletic exploits of Joel throughout his high school years as well as his professional career as a baseball player in the Baltimore Orioles organization, and his decision to accept a scholarship to play Division I football for Syracuse University. In many ways, Joels story parallels that of Ernie Davis, the Elmira Express, who was the first African American to win the Heisman Trophy.More important than any athletic achievements, Joels faith and his concern for others are the qualities that define Joel Stephens. DAloisio takes the reader on a painful odyssey as Joel accepts his illness yet valiantly struggles to overcome it. This tragic story is told with humor, intensity, and great warmth. It is remarkable that Stephens touched so many lives in such a short period of time. Even after his death, his legacy continues to grow through the Joel Stephens Foundation and other charitable organizations and events held in his honor.For those who knew Joel, this book will bring them even closer to an old friend; for those who never had the opportunity to meet Joel in person, this book will help you realize what you missed.

  • Unbroken Line af Billy Joe DuPree Spar 17% E-bog Unbroken Line af Billy Joe DuPree

    The Unbroken Line is the riveting story of how truly heartless the business of professional football was and is from the poor pension plans and inadequate medical benefits to the greed of union leadership which the authors argue takes advantage of and turns its back on the very individuals who make the game great. At no time in the annals of sports has the timing of a book been more important. This unique story provides a fascinating inside look at how a group of players and one attorney strategically outwitted the NFL and the Players Union leadership to score an historic and crucial victory for players rights. The year was 1982, a few courageous men stood up to their powerful administrative adversaries when no one else would during the most turbulent time in the history of professional football. What was at stake then and now again in 2010 is the players ability to earn salaries and benefits that are in line with their contributions to their teams. The authors, former Pro Bowl tight end Billy Joe DuPree and highly respected attorney Spencer Kopf, not only reveal the successful plan that began the end of player exploitation, but they also skillfully compare the peril players faced in 1982 to the heart wrenching situations of present-day, retired union members.

The Black family lived in a very modest house right next to the authors father's auto body shop near the railroad tracks in the poorest part of Plainfield, New Jersey and they knew his late father, Nathan. The author first met Mr. Black when he came to Hubbard Junior High School as a teacher and baseball coach and their forty-five year friendship continued until his death in 2002.As his teacher, coach, and mentor until the end of his life, Mr. Black became a trusted friend and mentor. He greatly influenced the authors life, his law practice, and his family. Selzer was given the honor of being the opening speaker at Joe Blacks Memorial Celebration on June 1, 2002. Many of Joes friends, acquaintances, and former colleagues contributed stories for this book; among them are Bill Cosby, Sandy Koufax, Bob Costas, Joe Garagiola, Dusty Baker, Jerry Reinsdorf, Jerry Colangelo and others. John Teets, former CEO of the Greyhound Corporation, talked of Joe Black's progress in advancing to become the first African American executive in the transportation industry. While in this position Joe Black wrote an an inspiring and motivational nationally syndicated column and did radio spots, both called "e;By the Way"e;. Several of these thoughtful columns appear in this book.

  • Go for the Green af Garry Hoyt Spar 15% E-bog Go for the Green af Garry Hoyt

    More than just a book about sailing, Go for the Green is a clarion call to bring sailing out of the doldrums and into an expanded role as a catalyst for the more environmentally sensitive enjoyment of the sea. As a former Coast Guard Officer, active racer, cruiser and yacht designer, author Garry Hoyt combines a lifetime of sailing experience, with a weather eye to uncover the new challenges of global warming and the need for energy independence. His prediction that carbon based fuels will eventually draw the same degree of social scorn that smoking now receives, creates an automatic need for ingenuity in the harnessing of sail and solar power as better alternatives for water based recreation. To encourage readers along that path, Hoyt presents a philosophy and a variety of new design solutions to stimulate more creative design development. He makes his case in a simple, readable style that will interest all those who love the sea.

  • How to Hunt the Nocturnal Buck af Dragan Vujic Spar 14% E-bog How to Hunt the Nocturnal Buck af Dragan Vujic

    The majority of the really big bucks only come out at night. After surviving three or more hunting seasons, these whitetails have learned that it is only safe to venture forth when the cloak of darkness descends. They are the nocturnal bucks. But, just because you do not see them in the diurnal hours, does not mean that they are not around. In fact, all of us have probably walked past within a stone throw of a bedded or hidden nocturnal buck and not noticed him. There are probably huge nocturnal bucks where you hunt. However, you may not have seen them. Having harvested several nocturnal bucks in the last several years, I would like to share some insightful information with you. This book describes in detail where to find nocturnal bucks and how to kill them during the daylight hours. The revealed strategies and tactics will bring you within bow range of a nocturnal buck in the daytime. I have also included a few detailed accounts of the nocturnal bucks that I have arrowed down.

  • T'ai-Chi for Geniuses af Gene Burnett Spar 14% E-bog T'ai-Chi for Geniuses af Gene Burnett

    T'AI-CHI CHUAN is a Chinese martial art based on consciously aligning with the unforced balance of Yin and Yang energies that underlies all things. Whether or not you are interested in martial arts, T'ai-Chi principles of balance can be applied to any life activity to increase performance, efficiency, health and enjoyment. T'AI-CHI FOR GENIUSES is a practice companion, not an instructionaltraining manual. Rather than presuming that the reader is a "e;dummy"e; or "e;complete idiot,"e; author Gene Burnett asserts that there is an inner "e;genius"e; within everyone. This genius is a wellspring of intuitive knowledge vastly more intelligent than our conscious minds. Burnett encourages the reader to listen to this inner genius while he breaks down the often confusing and mysterious T'ai-Chi training into four levels of work: Bone, Muscle, Energy and Spirit. Applying these levels of work to solo form training, partner work, weapons training, and daily life, Burnett shows how you can improve the quality and clarity of your practice, eventually becoming your own teacher and student.
