More About You Can't Make This Up by Al Michaels; L. Jon Wertheim
 
 
 
Overview

During the course of his forty-plus-year career, sportscaster Al Michaels has logged more hours on primetime network television than anyone in history, having covered all four major sports championships the Super Bowl, the World Series, the NBA Finals, and the Stanley Cup Final as well as the Olympic Games and the Triple Crown. He has witnessed some of the most memorable events in sports, and in this highly entertaining account, brings them all vividly to life.

Michaels's stories cover unforgettable chapters over the past half century from the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics' "Miracle on Ice" to the earthquake that rocked the 1989 World Series to the drama of what many consider the most exciting Super Bowl ever

Super Bowl XLIII between the Steelers and the Cardinals. Some of the biggest personalities on and off the field are here Pete Rose, Brett Favre, Tommy Lasorda, O. J. Simpson, John Madden, Cris Collinsworth, Tiger Woods, Dennis Miller, Michael Jordan, Howard Cosell, Peyton and Eli Manning, and many more.

From start to finish, Michaels gives us an up-close portrait of an industry that is a vital part of our national culture."
