Editorial Reviews

Throughout his more than 50 years as a sports writer, Stan Isaacs (who passed away in April 2013) developed a reputation as an iconoclast who willfully resisted the conventions of typical sports journalism. In Ten Moments That Shook the Sports World, voice actor Robert Sams puts in a character-filled performance of Isaacs' recollections of the sports moments that changed history. Sams compels listeners with his spirited narration of these epoch-shaping stories, from a first-person account of the very first Super Bowl to the tragedy of the 1972 Munich Olympics, showing why Isaacs is a sports journalism icon who won't easily be forgotten.
