1001 Days in the Bleachers : Quarter Century of Chicago Sports

1001 Days in the Bleachers : Quarter Century of Chicago Sports
$19.95

Loyal sports fans follow their teams through peaks and valleys, but in no other city have fans experienced the highs and lows of Chicagoans in the past generation. This collection of Ted Cox's greatest hits writing "The Sports Section" for the Chicago Reader from 1983 to 2008 constitutes an intimate history of Chicago teams during these years. From the triumphs--the six titles won by the Bulls, the Super Bowl champion 1985 Bears, and the White Sox winning the World Series in 2005--to the regularly occurring collapses of the Cubs, Cox puts his audience on the scene. He evokes the fan's experience with a level of vivid detail now nearly extinct from sports journalism. Cox writes like an ordinary observer who just happens to have excellent seats and easy access to the players and coaches. 1,001 Days in the Bleachers stands not only as a chronicle of Chicago's teams but also as a portrait of the evolution of professional sports and their place in the life of the city.
