Description:

Your first kiss. The birth of a child. Your first big job. These indelible memories shape our identity. Great sports moments do that too. Join one of America's most prolific sports-history writers and relive fifteen spectacular sports moments that transfixed and inspired a nation. Now, in this compelling fifteen-lecture series, David L. Hudson, Jr., author of numerous books on sports, explores unforgettable sports moments spanning football, baseball, golf, basketball, tennis, soccer, and more. You’ll sit ringside as Muhammad Ali employs the “rope-a-dope” strategy to upset George Foreman in Zaire and cheer as Secretariat wins the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes by an astounding thirty-one lengths. You’ll gasp as Reggie Jackson leads the Yankees to the World Series Championship with three home runs and marvel as Wilt Chamberlain scores 100 points in a single NBA game. You’ll also take in moments of triumph whose significance transcends the realm of sports, such as Jesse Owens’s victory at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, which shattered Adolf Hitler’s noxious myth of Aryan superiority. In this series, Hudson’s talents as an award-winning professor and world-championship boxing judge are put to full effect. Join him as he reanimates your favorite moments in sports history and sheds new light on the men and women who achieved them.
