THE ESSENTIAL BOOK FOR ANY SPORTS FAN, FROM ONE OF THE REIGNING KINGS OF SPORTS TALK RADIO, CHRISTOPHER "MAD DOG" RUSSO Which was the greater achievement, Ted Williams's .406 season or Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak? Who'd be left standing in a battle between Joe Louis and Mohammed Ali? Which NBA team was the greatest of all time--the '66--'67 Celtics? The '71--'72 Lakers? What about the '95--'96 Bulls? Who would dominate the ultimate Pebble Beach showdown--Ben Hogan or Tiger Woods? Who was the most important athlete of the twentieth century? You're a sports fan. You love a good argument and you'll defend your position as fervently as Michael Jordan at crunch time. You'll analyze games and terrible calls, throw out stats to prove a point, and heatedly debate whether a player is an overachiever--or merely overpaid. Now, in his long-awaited and completely original book, Christopher "Mad Dog" Russo sets up and breaks down the one hundred greatest sports arguments of all time. In classic Mad Dog style, each chapter tackles a classic sports debate and takes sides with the clear, step-by-step opinions that have made Russo one of the top radio personalities in the country. The Mad Dog 100 covers it all: from baseball (Who really should go to Cooperstown?), to basketball (Chamberlain, Russell, or Shaq: who's the NBA's most dominant center ever?), to football (Who is the greatest NFL quarterback ever?), to hockey (What are the greatest hockey dynasties of all time?)--and is a catch-all of other crucial modern-day sports questions like: Is instant replay really worth it? What's the true role of performance-enhancing drugs? Are salary caps really necessary? Whether you're reading The Mad Dog 100 or debating these sports arguments with friends, this is the definitive companion for any self-respecting sports fan.
