Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flamboyant. Pioneering. Opinionated. These words and dozens more have been used over the years to describe Chet Coppock, a true Chicago sports legend. Now, after decades of talking sports in every corner of the city with everyone from Hall of Famers to average fans, Coppock has written the ultimate guide to the most famous-and infamous-people, places, and moments in Chicago sports history. Fat Guys Shouldn't be Dancin' at Halftime is a one-of-a-kind guide through the wild and wacky world of Chicago sports. Fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the city's biggest stars from a man who's seen them all come and go; they'll also be directed to some off-the-beaten-path attractions that every true sports fan should visit. Beginning his broadcasting career announcing New Trier High School football and basketball games on the radio at the age of 17, Coppock has been a fixture on the Chicago sports scene ever since. One of the pioneers of sports-talk radio, Coppock has decades' worth of never-been-told stories on everyone from Mike Ditka to Michael Jordan, and he's visited every major sports venue and shrine around, from the rooftops across from Wrigley Field to the holiday basketball tournament at Proviso West High School. Chicago sports fans pride themselves on knowing the city's players and places, and now they can get the true stories behind the legends with Fat Guys Shouldn't be Dancin' at Halftime.
