The Big Show

From World Sports Headquarters in historic Bristol, Connecticut, comes the book that's more colorful than Dennis Rodman's hair. Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, the former tag-team partners of ESPN's award winning SportsCenter, mark for the ages their most unforgettable moments, which have transformed the art of sports broadcasting -- bringing what People magazine calls their "Letterman-like loopiness and Koppelesque smarts" to the printed page in THE BIG SHOW
Less expensive (and easier to read) than a big-leaguer's autograph, The Big Show gives you the honest, horrifying, yet always entertaining story of two men, three cameras, and highlights run amok, including:

  • How Keith and Dan made The Big Show run slicker than Pat Riley's hair
  • The origins of Dan and Keith's patented phrases
  • Keith and Dan's on-air flubs -- errors that made Bill Buckner's blunder seem minor
  • Dan and Keith's pantheon of all-time greatest athletes (Okay, who picked Coach Reeves from The White Shadow?)
  • And so much more we couldn't -- and wouldn't dare -- mention here!

  • Publisher: Atria Books (April 1, 1998)
