The Great Book of Cleveland Sports Lists


The Great Book of Cleveland Sports Lists Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sports talk in America has evolved from small-time barroom banter into a major media smorgasbord that runs 24/7 on TV and radio. With hundreds of billions of dollars generated annually by pro and college teams in major markets nationwide, sports fans across the country are more dedicated than ever to their teams. And when it comes to sports talk—especially all-sports radio—it’s all about entertainment, information, prognostication, analysis, rankings, and endless discussion. Prominent sports-media figures in each of the three target cities—Cleveland, Detroit, and Washington, D.C.—engage in this phenomenon with a compilation of sports lists sure to delight as well as stir up debate within these already-buzzing sports communities.

List topics include:

• What were the most lopsided trades in local sports history?

• Who were the most overrated athletes to play in our town?

• What local athlete had the best appearance in TV or film?

• What was the most heartbreaking loss in local sports history?

• What was the greatest single play in local sports history?

• Who are our team’s most hated rivals?

• Plus dozens of “guest” lists contributed by famous local sports and entertainment celebrities.

With franchises in three of the four major pro sports—the Browns (NFL), the Indians (MLB), and the Cavaliers (NBA)—plus a dedicated following of the Ohio State University athletics, Cleveland’s fans are some of the most rabid and knowledgeable in the country, and Bill Livingston and Greg Brinda are the acknowledged authorities on Cleveland-area sports.


About the Author

Bill Livingston has been the senior sports columnist at the Cleveland Plain Dealer since 1984, and he has been twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. He has won over 20 awards in journalism, and his work has appeared in The Sporting News, Sport, Basketball Digest, Cigar Aficionado, and more. He appears regularly on Cleveland TV on Time-Warner’s Plain Dealer Round Table.

Greg Brinda is known as the “Dean of Cleveland Sports Talk.” His 30-year sports-talk career makes him the longest-running radio sports personality in Cleveland. He hosts various time-slots weekly on ESPN 850 WKNR, and Cleveland’s AM 1540 KNR 2. He also hosts game-day radio shows for the Indians, Cavaliers, and Browns. Both authors live outside Cleveland.
