Summary
"John Schulian takes us back to a time when our greatest athletes stood before us as human beings, not remote gods. In this collection, Schulian paints prose portraits to remind fans of what today's cloistered stars won't share with them. Here, Willie Mays remembers how to smile in dreaded retirement; Muhammad Ali muses about a world that was once his. For every moment of triumph--Joe Montana in the Super Bowl, Marvelous Marvin Hagler over Thomas Hearns--there is another filled with the heartache that Pete Maravich felt when he hung up his basketball shoes
