Numbelievable!: The Dramatic Stories Behind the Most Memorable Numbers in Sports History
Sports fans can't seem to get enough of the numbers that matter most to them. They may not have a clue what the quadratic equation is, but they've got batting averages, single-game performances, scoring streaks, and championship seasons burned into their brains for eternity. Numbelievable! is jam-packed with a vast array of stats, tallies, official times, uniform numbers, and world records, and it's guaranteed to satisfy even the most insatiable fan's appetite for numbers. And not just the familiar numbers, like DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak, Chamberlain's 100 points, or Roger Bannister's 3: 59-minute mile. In addition, there are also dozens of jaw-dropping, dominant digits you never knew about and couldn't have guessed. How about Georgia Tech 222, Cumberland 0? Some might even make your stomach growl: world eating champion Koyabashi once devoured 53 1/2 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Take a moment to digest that one. A must-have reference source for avid and casual fans alike, and a fascinating introduction for the simply curious, Numbelievable! does much more than give trivia answers--it delivers the stories behind these numbers and reminds you why they are so special. Whether it's the precipitously plunged mercury at Green Bay's infamous Ice Bowl, the Masterful arrival of Tiger, or the astronomical A-Rod contract--from minus-48 degrees to $252 million--it's all here.
