Game On: The All-American Race to Make Champions of Our Children
Game On: The All-American Race to Make Champions
A first-of-its-kind investigative book on the least examined and most important topic in sports today.Youth sports isn't just orange slices and all-star trophies anymore. It's 14-year-olds who enter high school with a decade of football experience, 9-year-olds competing for national baseball championships, 5-year-old golfers who shoot par, and toddlers made from sperm donated (for a fee) by elite college athletes. It's a year-round "travel team" in every community--and parents who fear that not making the cut in grade school will cost their kid the chance to play in high school. In short, a landscape in which performance often matters more than participation, all the way down to peewee basketball.Much as Fast Food Nation challenged our eating habits and Silent Spring rewired how we think about the environment, Tom Farrey's Game On will forever change the way we look at this desperate culture besotted by the example of Tiger Woods. An Emmy award-winning reporter, Farrey examines the lives of child athletes and the consequences of sorting the strong from the weak at ever earlier ages: fewer active kids, testier sidelines, rising obesity rates, and U.S. national teams that rarely win world titles.He dives into the world of these games that are played by more than 30 million boys and...

The All Americans
On November 29, 1941, Army played Navy in front of 100,000 fans. Eight days later, the Japanese attacked and the young men who battled each other in that historic game were forced to fight a very different enemy. Author Lars Anderson follows four players―two from Annapolis and two from West Point―in this epic true story, The All Americans.Bill Busik. Growing up in Pasadena, California, Busik was best friends with a young black man named Jackie, who in 1947 would make Major League Baseball history. Busik would have a spectacular sports career himself at the Naval Academy, earning All-American honors as a tailback in 1941. He was serving aboard the U.S.S. Shaw when it was attacked by Japanese dive-bombers in 1943.Hal Kauffman. Together, Busik and Kauffman rode a train across the nation to Annapolis to enroll in the Naval Academy. A backup tailback at Navy, Kauffman would go on to serve aboard the U.S.S. Meredith, which was sunk in 1942. For five days Kauffman struggled to stay alive on a raft, fighting off hallucinations, dehydration, and―most terrifying of all―sharks. Dozens of his crewmates lost their minds; others were eaten by sharks. All the while Kauffman wondered if he'd ever see his friend and teammate again.Henry Romanek. Because he had relatives in Poland, Romanek...

GoSports Regulation Size Solid Wood Cornhole Set - American Flag Design - Includes Two 4' x 2' Boards, 8 Bean Bags, Carrying Case and Game Rules
GoSports Regulation Size Solid Wood Cornhole Set -
Our GoSports Regulation Size American Flag Solid Wood Cornhole Set is built using all wood materials to provide the ultimate cornhole experience. The boards are handcrafted from 100% wood as they do not include any composite materials or plastics. The 4' x 2' size is made to ACA regulations. The top surface is 1/2" varnished cabinet-grade plywood (ACA regulation), that provides the perfect amount of slide. The frames are handcrafted from solid pine, featuring mitered corner joints which are far superior to the shoddy construction of the 'homemade style' sets that simply have 2x4s sloppily nailed together. The wooden legs are retractable and are held in place by robust 3/8" galvanized steel bolts with wing nuts. One of the greatest features of the GoSports set is we were able to engineer the weight of each set down to a manageable 38 pounds for the 4' x 2' without sacrificing gameplay. Compare that to the traditional 'homemade style' sets that weigh in at a backbreaking 60+ pounds! This weight savings means you will actually want to bring your cornhole game with you where ever you go. The set includes 8 regulation size all-weather cornhole bags which measure 6" x 6" and weigh 1 pound each and a robust carrying case. The bean bags are filled with recycled plastic pellets, but unlik...

GoSports Cornhole PRO Regulation Size Bean Bag Toss Game Set | American Flag Design
GoSports Cornhole PRO Regulation Size Bean Bag Toss
The GoSports Aluminum Frame Cornhole game was designed to provide for a superior Cornhole experience by maximizing durability, portability and game quality. The 4' x 2' boards are full regulation size for authentic gameplay, but they can fold in half to make them extremely portable. How are the GoSports Cornhole games different? Aluminum Frame Construction: Very sturdy, yet lightweight – much better quality than steel, foam board or other mystery materials. 8 All-Weather Duck Cloth Bags – these bags are the real deal - not the cheap sand filled bags other companies use that feel like bricks. Our boards are also unique in that they fold in half for easy portability / storage, but this does not affect gameplay in any way. All the bags can be stored inside the folded boards when not in use. Choose from our classic black design, the red and blue design, or play into the night with our LED light-up model. Manufacturer's Note: We stand behind our products 100%, so if you have any quality issues, please contact us so we can fix the problem right away. Thank you for choosing GoSports.

The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics
The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and
The #1 New York Times–bestselling story about American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany and now the inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36'.”For readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.
