History's greatest sports calls from an admittedly scratchy recording of Babe Ruth's memorable World Series home run in 1932 to the dramatic penalty shootout win in the 1999 Women's World Cup.
What baseball fan doesn't get goosebumps when hearing, "The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!" Who--hockey fan or not--doesn't feel a little bit giddy whenever they hear Al Michaels shout, "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!" Who doesn't grin when they hear Univision sportscaster Andres Cantor demonstrate his lung capacity by bellowing, "Gooooaaaal!" And who can forget "The Play" in the Cal vs. Stanford game when the Bears came back to win in the final seconds--bowling over a trombone player in the process? From an admittedly scratchy recording of Babe Ruth's memorable World Series home run in 1932 to the dramatic penalty shootout win in the 1999 Women's World Cup, And the Crowd Goes Wild captures history's greatest sports calls.
The two CDs accompanying this collection feature 47 original sports calls, including Franco Harris making the "Immaculate Reception," Secretariat winning the Triple Crown, Lou Gehrig saying goodbye, Buster Douglas upsetting Mike Tyson, and Mark McGwire beating Roger Maris's single-season home run record. The book sets up each event with capsule explanations, accompanied by stock photographs. Narrated by Bob Costas, And the Crowd Goes Wild will entertain any sports fan. Sunny Delaney
From Publishers Weekly
Following in the footsteps of his own bestselling We Interrupt This Broadcast, radio veteran Garner has put together this gift-perfect compilation of 47 of the most memorable sporting events ever broadcast on radio or TV. This coffee-table-sized volume includes a foreword by Hank Aaron and an afterword by Wayne Gretzky. It also features two accompanying audio CDs that combine sturdy backstory narration of each event by Bob Costas with snippets of the original broadcast. From Babe Ruth's called shot in the 1932 World Series to the U.S. women's 1999 World Cup soccer victory, Garner's collection is a diverse sampling of the century's most significant sporting moments. The book itself benefits from a generous dose of outstanding photographs. The CD set is at once more compelling and more uneven than the text and photos. Some of the events--such as the showdown between Magic Johnson's Michigan State and Larry Bird's Indiana State in the 1979 NCAA basketball finals--were historically important but didn't have any defining, dramatic moments for a sportscaster to sink his teeth into. The best selections combine passionate announcing--Russ Hodges screaming, "The Giants win the pennant!" after Bobby Thomson's homer lifted the Giants over the Dodgers in 1951-- with an improbable outcome--like Billy Mills's miraculous run to victory in the 1964 Olympic 10,000 meters--to create a familiar tingle down the spine.
