Synopsis:

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Heroes Triumphed.
Announcers Went Wild.
And The Fans Roared.
Feel The Thunder Again.

Featuring the riveting stories that bring you back to the moment, acclaimed sports photographs and two audio CDs narrated by award-winning sports journalist Bob Costas, And The Fans Roared delivers more than forty of the most spine-tingling sports moments ever broadcast.

Joe Garner's bestselling book And The Crowd Goes Wild left sports fans clamoring for more of the thrilling events that brought them to the edge of their seats. And The Fans Roared delivers.

In gripping style, And The Fans Roared highlights announcers' surprised, amazed and awestruck calls from every major sports arena--from baseball, football, basketball and the Olympics, to hockey, auto and horse racing, tennis, boxing, cycling and golf.

Accompanying this book, the two audio CDs highlight the exciting moments that brought us to our feet, when heroes reached for the stars, announcers reached for the words to describe them...and the fans roared!

Relive the most electrifying sports moments ever broadcast, including:

September 29, 1954 -- Willie Mays Makes "The Catch"
October 25, 1964 -- Jim Marshall Runs the Wrong Way
January 22, 1973 -- George Foreman Beats Joe Frazier
"Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!"
February 23, 1980 -- Eric Heiden Dominates Winter Olympics
October 7, 1984 -- Walter Payton Breaks Career Rushing Record
"Looking for the record...he's got it!"
September 11, 1985 -- Pete Rose Smacks Hit No. 4,192
"It is pandemonium here at Riverfront Stadium!"
May 7, 1989 -- "The Shot": Michael Jordan Beats Cleveland
March 28, 1992 -- Duke Beats Kentucky on Laettner Buzzer-Beater
October 23, 1993 -- Joe Carter Homer Wins World Series
August 1, 1996 -- Michael Johnson Wins 200 and 400 Gold in Atlanta

Hear each memorable broadcast again--or for the very first time in this New York Times bestseller!

Review:

Sports calls help us remember the best of times--who can forget the "Music City Miracle" (that's the "immaculate deception" to you, Bills fans)? "Touchdown, Titans! There are no flags on the field! It's a miracle!" They also help us remember the worst of times--such as the day the Vikings' Jim Marshall got a little confused after recovering a fumble. "Marshall is running the wrong way! Marshall is running the wrong way! And he's running it into the end zone the wrong way! Thinks he's scored a touchdown, and he's scored a safety!" Who doesn't grin when they hear Howard Cosell bellowing, "Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!" And who can forget the night Kareem Abdul-Jabbar broke the NBA career scoring record? From Babe Ruth's raspy thank-you in his farewell speech in 1947 to Tiger Woods's resounding victory in the 2000 U.S. Open, And the Fans Roared captures more of history's greatest sports calls.

Similar in format to its sister volume, And the Crowd Goes Wild, And the Fans Roared includes two CDs featuring 43 original sports calls, including Michael Jordan sinking "The Shot," Affirmed winning the Triple Crown, the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding soap opera, Tom Dempsey kicking a 63-yard game-winning field goal, Mike Tyson biting off a chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear, and Walter Payton breaking Jim Brown's career rushing record. The book sets up each event with capsule explanations, accompanied by stock photographs. Narrated by Bob Costas, And the Fans Roared will entertain any sports fan. --M. Stein
