Item Description...
Outline ReviewWhat 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

Product Description
Fans Wept. The Crowd Cheered. The Announcers Went Wild. You Just Had To Be There. And You Can Be.

In words and images--and on two audio CDs narrated by award-winning sports journalist Bob Costas--And The Crowd Goes Wild brings to life the spine-tingling moments that brought us to our feet.

From bleachers to box seats to living room sofas, devoted fans and casual observers yearn for the thrill of last-minute heroics, underdog victories or the crowning moment of a champion's career.

And The Crowd Goes Wild recounts forty-seven of the most memorable moments in sports and spotlights the photographs that tell the stories. Accompanying the book, two digitally mastered CDs contain over two hours of audio, including the actual calls of the announcers who were just as excited, surprised and awestruck as the fans.

Their words--and the emotional charge in their voices--take you back to the heart-stopping thrill of the event, when an athlete triumphed...and the crowd went wild!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Would be better with video  May 15, 2004
Obviously, some of the "Classic" events of the sporting world are stunning when heard. Before live television, this was all there was. Sportscasters knew how to broadcast with energy and adjectives to paint the picture. For modern events, sportscasters are so unprepared to radio broadcasts, the listener isn't "in the game." This book, though the selections are appropriate, would be better supplimented with a DVD of the sports highlights.
Wild!  Aug 3, 2003
No matter what sport you are interested in, this book will be something you will find interesting. This is a big glossy picture book that tells a brief history story of sports by looking at key moments in sports history in the last 100 years. There are critical moments that will live forever -- when Babe Ruth pointed his finger and called the shot for his homerun, when Lou Gehrig said goodbye forever to game he loved so much, when Secretariat won the third race to take the Triple Crown, when Nadia Comanedi nailed that perfect 10 in Olympic gymnastics, all the way up to when Tiger Woods won the Masters and Mark McGwire passed the Maris home-run record, these are the times. With this book you not only get to read about them and see the pictures, but you get the sounds from the broadcasts, too, on two CDs that are part of this item. With narration by Bob Costas (anyone who watches sports will recognize him) you can relive the moments in sound, color, pictures and words, about as close as you can get to being there. This is a great book, a great gift for any sports fan, and if anyone ever had any doubt about sports being exciting, this book has the moments that will show just how exciting things can get!
great for the old sports fan with stories galore  Dec 4, 2000
Filled with tons of great stories from 1932 to 1999. Filled with your most favorite sports stories. It has 173 pages , not including the intro and foreword by Hank Aaron and the credits. Comes with 2 Audio Cd's, which say the same thing as the book. The audio cd is great background music for formal parties and much more. This is overall a great buy.
More entertaining than "We Interrupt This Broadcast..."  Feb 23, 2000
I enjoyed this set more than the previous title for the mere fact that Bob Costas yaps for far less time than Bill Kurtis on most of the tracks. Costas is, for the most part, concise and sets up very well the moment about to be heard. Bill Kurtis tended to ramble on longer than the news clip on "We Interrupt This Broadcast..."

Overall, I really enjoyed these moments, especially as I am too young to remember over 3/4ths of them =), you can still get a tingle hearing the call on the Cal-Stanford game, Wilt's 100th point, etc.

And The Crowd Goes Wild  Jan 16, 2000
I loved the book. I have two comments though. Eric Heiden's Olympic accomplishments in skating should have been included instead of the Bobby Riggs/Billie Jean King PR stunt. Also on page 49 there is an incorrect photo of the Ice Bowl game between Green Bay and Dallas. The picture of Bart Starr throwing a pass is not from the famed frozen tundra game. If you look at the crowd in the background, no one is wearing -46 degree weather clothing. In fact there is even one guy in the front row with his coat open. This photo also looks like a night game; I believe the Ice Bowl was played during the day. Other than those two things the book was great.
