Description du livre Potomac Books Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A handful of star athletes, along with their promoters and journalists, created America s sports entertainment industry during the 1920s, the Golden Age of American sports. The period had an extraordinary impact, profoundly changing individual sports, establishing the secular religion of sports and sports heroes, and helping bond disparate social and regional sectors of the country. It s when sports became a cornerstone of modern American life. Heroes and Ballyhoo profiles the ten most prominent Golden Age heroes and describes their effect on sports and society. Babe Ruth saved baseball after the Black Sox Scandal. Boxer Jack Dempsey made the sweet science a respectable sport. Red Grange single-handedly set professional football on a path to eventual success. Knute Rockne helped transform college football from a game to a colossal enterprise. Bobby Jones changed golf into a spectator sport, and Walter Hagen sparked the first national interest in professional golf. Bill Tilden put tennis on the front of the sports section. Tennis player Helen Wills Moody joined swimmer Gertrude Ederle in empowering women athletes. Johnny Weissmuller astonished international swimming before becoming Tarzan. The book also explores the ballyhoo artists - sportswriters, promoters, and press agents - who hyped the stars to a receptive public. Simultaneously, the spectators established themselves as the focus of popular sports. The personalities and events of the 1920s thus created today s entertainment conglomerate of heroes, promoters and advertisers, fans, arenas - and money. Sports as a profit center started with the Golden Age s heroes and PR artists, and the public s obsessive interest in sports helped shape America s emerging mass society. Heroes and Ballyhoo tells the story of what was both a symptom and a cause of modern America. N° de réf. du libraire AAJ9781597974127

Description du livre Veloce Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. If you remember off-road stars like the Rickman brothers Vic Eastwood, Lew Coffin, and John Avery, then this is a must-have book for your collection. They re big names who brought the thrills and spills of the golden era of motorcycle sport to a whole generation. For the author, it s a personal trip down memory lane, as he was lucky enough to see many of these men and women at the height of their racing careers. Seventeen of the rider profiles in this book originally appeared over a three-year period in the pages of The Classic Motorcycle magazine, but the profile on the Rickman brothers - two of scrambling s true greats - has never been seen in print before. Accompanied by a totally new set of over 100 stunning photographs, this is a book that will evoke fond memories for all who share the author s love of motorcycle sport in a golden age.

Description du livre Random House Canada, Canada, 2016. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Don Cherry has become a broadcasting legend, garnering millions of fans around the world with his Coach s Corner segment on Hockey Night in Canada. For over a decade, Cherry also hosted the TV show Grapevine, which brought viewers up close and personal with the biggest names in sports. Don was the interviewer and his son, Tim, produced the show. And no one in the sports world, from hockey players to boxers to curlers to umpires, turned down an invitation to appear on it. It was on that show that Don has some of his fondest memories from his many years in the biz, and, at last, in Don Cherry s Sports Heroes, he gives us behind-the-scenes access to some of his most fascinating and revealing interviews with the all-time greats. Don has his signature candidness and sizzling humour in these interviews and stories. In these pages you ll find epic stories about hockey greats Maurice Rocket Richard, Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr and Gordie Howe, to name a few, and since Grapevine TV was the place to be in the sports world, you can revel in some unforgettable stories on players in other fields, too. Don Cherry shares with the world tales that only a true insider could know. You won t be disappointed. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9780385687249
