Stadium Games: Fifty Years of Big League Greed and Bush League Boondoggles

Editura: UNIV OF MINNESOTA PR

Anul aparitiei: 2000

From Seattle to Houston to New York, governments and taxpayers are grappling with how to pay for new major league sports facilities. Support for public funding is down -- sports fans feel alienated in the face of team owners' demands, threats to leave, and spiraling player salaries. In Stadium Games, veteran Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Jay Weiner zooms in on Minnesota's fifty-year history with pro sports and the issues contributing to the bid for a new stadium for the Minnesota Twins, along the way providing a big-picture evaluation of national sports economics.Stadium, Games begins with the events leading to the arrival of the Twins and Vikings to the state in 1961 and traces subsequent controversies about professional sports in the region up to the present. Weiner discusses the factors that make Minnesota the poster child for the nation's stadium debates -- the recent departure of the North Stars hockey team, the near departure of the Timberwolves, the strong opposition of taxpayers, and the apparent greed of team owners. In an account full of stories, scandals, and colorful personalities, Weiner reveals the behind-the-scenes deals and inside scoop on what went wrong in the ...

Outside Shooter: A Memoir

Editura: UNIV OF MISSOURI PR

Anul aparitiei: 2003

Philip Raisor was on the losing side in two of the most storied basketball games ever played. He started at guard for the Muncie Central Bearcats, who fell in the 1954 Indiana state final to tiny Milan, the David-over-Goliath event that inspired the movie Hoosiers. On a basketball scholarship to the University of Kansas, he watched his Wilt Chamberlain-led Jayhawks lose the 1957 NCAA championship in triple overtime to North Carolina. In Outside Shooter, Raisor recounts the hard knocks and hard-won triumphs of a basketball odyssey across 1950s America, from Indiana to Kansas to Louisiana, and from adolescence to adulthood. This was an era in which a racially divided society was taking halting steps toward integration, and few places held more tension than the sports arena. Raisor saw firsthand the toll of racism in the inner rage and sorrow of Muncie's star player, John Casterlow, whose life followed a trajectory from playing the legendary Oscar Robertson to a draw--almost--to death in the streets of Detroit at age twenty-three. Later, at Louisiana State University after having transferred from Kansas, Raisor, spurred by the memory of Casterlow, would join in hazardous early ...

Known as the Perfect Prince, John is a proud son and the only male heir of Afonso the African, in 1481 he ascends to the throne of Portugal. A brilliant, fiery, and ruthless man, King John II has learned from his father's mistakes and now knows the future of his small kingdom is not in North Africa, but instead, lies to the east in the Indies-within the riches of the spice trade. In order for his dream to come true, King John II needs astronomers to guide his four ships as well as priests and lawyers-wily men who can win a kingdom with the stroke of a pen or conquer a foreign land with a well-placed clause. Building on the network of his great uncle, Henry the Navigator, King John II sends his ships down the west coast of Africa and his spies across the Red Sea to India. In this tale of adventure on the high seas, men will expertly read the stars, deftly play political and war games, and dare to risk the future of an entire nation for Marco Polo's pot of gold, ultimately causing the rise of a small country onto the world stage.

In 1967, a Boeing 707 filled with United States Marines roars off the Alaskan runway and heads for Vietnam. As Mitchell Rice looks out the plane's window, he wonders if this will be his last glimpse of home. What Rice does not know is that he has just left a normal life behind forever. Twelve thousand miles later, entrenched in the jungles of Vietnam; Rice is assigned to a two-man sniper unit. After North Vietnamese attackers kill his partner, Rice goes on a vengeful killing spree, sending eighty VMAs to their graves. Rice is ultimately injured and airlifted to a hospital where he meets three special women who each try to make him whole once again. Eventually discharged from the Marines, Mitch continues to grapple with the internal demons created by the battlefield atrocities he witnessed. Even as a civilian medical student called upon to execute a short mission during the 1972 Olympic Games, Rice still struggles to find his self-worth. Decades later, after Mitch has developed a medical practice in Oklahoma, he is called back to the military and must perform one final international assignment that threatens to destroy the very life he has worked so hard to recreate.

Editura: IUNIVERSE STAR

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Mary Elizabeth Auman was a teenager living in the rural south during the waning years of the Jazz Age when electricity, the radio, talking movies, and the 1928 Presidential election were the talk of her community. After rescuing her diary from being discarded by his father in the late 1950s, her nephew, William Auman, held on to the written memories for years until recently when, as a tribute to her memory, he decided to share both Mary's insight into the social and academic life she experienced as well as his own historical clarifications. Through her journal entries, Mary presents a portrait of life in a rural southern village, describing many trips with friends to parties, movies, and fairs. While providing vivid accounts of life in the dormitories at coed Elon College and social activities at parties, ball games, and other collegiate events, she also details how she and her classmates rebelled against the taboos of dating, dancing, and smoking-often finding themselves on probation or suspended from school as punishment.
