What Sporting Event Do You Wish Ended Differently? [AUDIO]
Mike Pesca wrote a book that asks the eternal sports question "What If?" We've all watched games and told ourselves and our friends that if this or that happened it would all been different. For me it's the "Tuck Rule" for Goz it's Jeffrey Mayer reaching over the wall at Yankee Stadium. What if Charles Barkley had a championship or if Bill Buckner fields a grounder to first? I'm sure you have your own What If. "Upon Further Review" gives us a look at how different the world would be if What If really happened.
Google Books wrote the following about "Upon Further Review."
"From Mike Pesca, host of the popular Slate podcast The Gist, comes the greatest sports minds imagining how the world would change if a play, trade, injury, or referee's call had just gone the other way.
No announcer ever proclaimed: "Up Rises Frazier!" "Havlicek commits the foul, trying to steal the ball!" or "The Giants Lose the Pennant, The Giants Lose The Pennant!" Such moments are indelibly etched upon the mind of every sports fan. Or rather, they would be, had they happened. Sports are notoriously games of inches, and when we conjure the thought of certain athletes - like Bill Buckner or Scott Norwood - we can't help but apply a mental tape measure to the highlight reels of our minds. Players, coaches, and of course fans, obsess on the play when they ask, "What if?" Upon Further Review is the first book to answer that question."
