Plot / Summary
When Jim Gorant, a Sports Illustrated staffer and lifelong sports fan, realized that he had never actually attended any of sports most iconic events, he wondered, What kind of sports fan am I, anyway? And if he had to pick the top ten events, what would they be? These questions resulted in a growing obsession, first with determining the events that should make the list and then with actually attending them. What began as a personal challenge quickly evolved into a yearlong journey into the heart of sports in this country by way of its most iconic and beloved events. From the Kentucky Derby to the Super Bowl, from a day game at Wrigley 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 worst) sports has to offer in a style that marries Bill Bryson and John Feinstein.
