Item Description...
Outline ReviewSports calls help us remember the best of times--who can forget the "Music City Miracle" (that's the "immaculate deception" to you, Bills fans)? "Touchdown, Titans! There are no flags on the field! It's a miracle!" They also help us remember the worst of times--such as the day the Vikings' Jim Marshall got a little confused after recovering a fumble. "Marshall is running the wrong way! Marshall is running the wrong way! And he's running it into the end zone the wrong way! Thinks he's scored a touchdown, and he's scored a safety!" Who doesn't grin when they hear Howard Cosell bellowing, "Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!" And who can forget the night Kareem Abdul-Jabbar broke the NBA career scoring record? From Babe Ruth's raspy thank-you in his farewell speech in 1947 to Tiger Woods's resounding victory in the 2000 U.S. Open, And the Fans Roared captures more of history's greatest sports calls.

Similar in format to its sister volume, And the Crowd Goes Wild, And the Fans Roared includes two CDs featuring 43 original sports calls, including Michael Jordan sinking "The Shot," Affirmed winning the Triple Crown, the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding soap opera, Tom Dempsey kicking a 63-yard game-winning field goal, Mike Tyson biting off a chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear, and Walter Payton breaking Jim Brown's career rushing record. The book sets up each event with capsule explanations, accompanied by stock photographs. Narrated by Bob Costas, And the Fans Roared will entertain any sports fan. --M. Stein

Reviews - What do our customers think?
some great plays on cd and picture book  Dec 21, 2006
The cds contained are nicely narrated by bob costas and the book has some nice pictures inside. The book covers a wide range of sprorts which should appeal to any sports fan.
JUST A BLAST  Jan 16, 2004
This was fun. Highly recommended. I think the audio CDs, could be a bit long winded, but other than that, it's great, especially the book, which is beautiful and nicely written.
And the Crowd Goes Wild/And the Fans Roared  Dec 19, 2000
It's a good book & great for those who have CD players. BUT it would be great to also offer it on cassette (for those people, like my father, who do not have a CD player, but would LOVE it).
Holy Cow!  Dec 11, 2000
Following up on the one-two punch they delivered in last year's bestselling And the Crowd Goes Wild, Garner and Costas stick to the winning formula: a coffee-table compilation of great moments in sports with a companion two-CD collection of original broadcasts of those events, starring Joe Montana, Mary Lou Retton, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and dozens of other champs.

There are a few muffs -- why use an audio clip from 1956 to illustrate Jackie Robinson's historic 1947 debut with the Dodgers? But there's much more to celebrate, such as Lyell Bremser's call of Johnny Rodgers's 72-yard punt return in Nebraska's 1971 victory over rival Oklahoma: "Holy moly! Man, woman and child, did that put 'em in the aisle!"

A true sports paradise. A great gift combo of book and CD audio delights.

The Best of the Best  Dec 9, 2000
An excellent collection of the most exciting sports moments of the 20th century, and it's a collection that will get more valuable over time. While Garner's writing style might be described as simplistic by some, it is entirely appropriate for the subject matter at hand - sports. Here you don't want ivory-tower verbosity, you want simple direct descriptions, and Garner delivers.

Any sports fan will be captivated by Garners descriptions, and will relive the passion we all experienced with those great events when heroes were still heroes. For the sports fan in your family, there is no better gift.
