Overview
If you had to pick the top ten iconic sporting events, what would they be? Jim Gorant asked himself this question, and the answer resulted in a yearlong journey into the heart of sports. From the Kentucky Derby to the Super Bowl, from a day game at Wrigley Field to a fortnight at Wimbledon, from the NCAA Final Four to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, Gorant takes us along for the ride, evoking the best (and sometimes the worst) sports has to offer. He enters the inner sanctum of NASCAR, witnesses Jack Nicklaus teeing off for the last time at the Masters, and takes part in one of college football's biggest rivalries -- Ohio State versus Michigan.
Part adventure, part pilgrimage, Fanatic is a rollicking story of the ultimate sports road trip. Through this transformative journey Jim Gorant learned a little more about what it means to be a fan and a lot more about himself.
