There is no other stadium like Fenway Park with its wooden seats, manual scoreboard, and the looming green monster; no other history that includes such an infamous trade, a curse, and a penchant for losing critical games; no other group of fans that measure up to the loyal Red Sox Nation. There is simply no other team that compares to the Red Sox.
This revised and updated version of 101 Reasons to Love the Red Sox is filled with reasons to celebrate Boston's best-loved team: the 2004 World Series championship, the beloved B, five World Series titles before 1919, Yawky Way, the legendary Ted Williams, Royal Rooters, the -Impossible Dream- season, Cy Young, and Big Papi. Vintage and modern photos, baseball cards, memorable stories, and sports trivia provide a portrait of the Red Sox from their very beginning to the present. The heart of the players and fans combined with the Red Sox' storied past truly make Fenway Park a field of dreams.
12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady's Fight for Redemption

12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady's Fight for Redemption

$8.99
More Info
The thrilling behind-the-scenes account of how the NFL's most sensational scandal culminated in sports history's greatest comeback, featuring dozens of exclusive interviews with Patriots players -- including Tom Brady himself.

In January 2015, rumors circulated that the New England Patriots -- a team long suspected of abiding by the "if you ain't cheating you ain't trying" philosophy -- had used under-inflated footballs in their playoff victory against the Indianapolis Colts. As evidence began to build, however, a full on NFL investigation was launched, exploding an unsubstantiated rumor into an intense scandal that would lead news coverage for weeks. As shockwaves rippled throughout the NFL system, the very legitimacy of one of the league's most popular teams and their star quarterback began to erode, even as the Patriots and Brady went on to win that year's Super Bowl.

But as the celebrations gave way to the offseason, the investigation only intensified, reopening old wounds between the Patriots' powerful owner, Robert Kraft, and the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell. Brady was devastated and seemingly more nervous in front of a judge that on a game-winning drive.

When the dust settled, Brady would be able to play again - but only after watching the first four games of the 2016 season from his couch. The pressure couldn't have been more intense: Brady's legacy was at stake. If he failed to return to his usual self, all the critics and even the history books would have to put a giant asterisk next to his name, signifying one thing: he was a cheater.

12 is the propulsive story of this gritty comeback. It's a drama that unfolds in the locker room, the court room, and under the brightest lights in all of sports -- the Super Bowl. Now for the first time, readers will have an exclusive look into Tom Brady's experience and the NFL's shocking strangle-hold on their players. With unprecedented access to Brady himself, his teammates, and his lawyers, we will see just how a football legend went up against one of the largest corporations in the world to stage the greatest comeback in NFL history and emerge a god of the gridiron.

An insightful and . . . amusing look at the inner workings of pro football (The New York Times) from the bestselling author of Word Freak

In Word Freak, Stefan Fatsis invaded the insular world of competitive Scrabble players, ultimately achieving an expert-level ranking.

And for three months he became a placekicker for the Denver Broncos. Making the most of unprecedented access to an NFL team and its players, and drawing on his own personal experience, Fatsis with wry candor and hard-won empathy unveils the mind of the modern pro athlete and the workings of a storied sports franchise as no writer has before.

"Diligent, detailed, and overpowering.

More Info
Whitetail rut behavior and the hunting strategies that take it into account have come a long way in the last thirty years. We now know when--almost to the date-whitetails breed in a particular geographic location. We can translate and decipher deer vocalizations and language; have better knowledge of the size of a buck's home range; know why bucks make rubs, and where; and much more.
Still, one thing remains the same: The rut is a time for hope and big dreams--that the biggest buck in the woods will be so transfixed that he'll finally make the mistake that brings him within range.
Here, from some of the most respected and entertaining writers in the business, is an anthology of hunting the rut. Chapters include:
Catching the Early Rut, by Gary Clancy; Hitting the Rut Right, by Greg Miller; S-L-O-W Stalking the Rut, by Bob McNally; Forget About Hunting Scrapes, by John Weiss; Do You Savvy Rut Speak? by John Weiss; The Seven Phases of the Rut, by Curt Wells; EZ Guide to Calling Bucks, by Michael Hanback; Best Stands for the Rut, by Bill Winke; Calling the Rut, by John Weiss; Just a Matter of Time, by Kenn Young; Climb High for Rutting Bucks, by Bob Robb; Sure-Cure for the Post-Rut Blues, by Greg Miller; Early Rubs and How to Hunt Them, by Greg Miller; A Sham in the Deer Woods! by Gary Clancy; Follow Your Does, by Dave Justmann; and more.

More Info
Ben Hoganas former ball shagger recounts firsthand stories of the golf legendaand reveals, for the first time, Hoganas Swing Secret, a source of mystery to golfers for more than fifty years.

Ben Hoganas pro-golf record is legendary. A four-time PGA Player of the Year, he celebrated sixty-three tournament wins and became known as a man of few words and fewer close friends. Most of what we know about Hogan has been based on myth and speculation. Until now.

In the 1960as, though Hoganas competitive career was over, he kept the practice habits that had made him famous and remade modern competitive golf. He hired fifteen-year-old Jody Vasquez to help. Each day, after driving to a remote part of the course at the Shady Oaks Country Club, Hogan would spend hours hitting balls, and Vasquez would retrieve them. There, and over the course of their twenty-year friendship, Hogan taught Jody the mechanics of his famous swing and shared his thoughts on playing, practicing, and course managementaunknowingly revealing much about his character, values, and beliefs, and the events that shaped them.

In "Afternoons with Mr. Hogan," Jody Vasquez shares dozens of stories about Hogan, from the way he practiced, selected his clubs, and interacted with other star players to his little-known humor and generosity. Combining the gentle insight of Tom Kiteas "A Fairway to Heaven" (which recalls Kiteas golf education under Harvey Penick) with the sage perspective of Penickas own "Little Red Book," Vasquezas tribute is funny, poignant, and full of advice for golfers of all levels.
