Description


How did the loss of the beloved Browns impact the city of Cleveland? Who is Venuste Niyongabo, and what made was his seemingly insignificant 5000-meters victory in the 1996 Olympics special? Why was the age-discrimination trial of former Notre Dame assistant football coach Joe Moore being called the darkest incident in Fighting Irish history? The answers to poignant questions such as these lie within the pages of BEYOND THE BOX SCORE, a collection of 50 essays investigating sports, their impact on society, and the key individuals who make athletic competition the social phenomenon it is today. BEYOND THE BOX SCORE offers insight, depth, and occasionally even humor while examining all types and levels of sporting competition -- from high school to professional and football to golf.
