Item description for Philly Jocks: The Best Philadelphia Pro Athletes of Our Time by Dave Brown & Jody Mcdonald...

Philly Jocks is the first book about the best athletes from all four of Philadelphia s major sports teams Phillies, Eagles, Sixers, and Flyers. To compile the list, Brown polled 100 people who are knowledgeable about Philadelphia sports including broadcasters from local teams, sportswriters from city and suburban newspapers, sportscasters and anchors from local TV stations, a sports producer, and a sports radio host, Jody McDonald, who wrote the foreword for the book, as well as avid fans and asked them to submit a list of their top 50 Philly athletes over the last 50 years. Each of the 100 chapters featuring a Philadelphia athlete includes a short biography enlivened with insightful, sometimes controversial quotes from the experts and fans who participated in the survey the survey results, the player s year-by-year regular season statistics (the seasons in Philadelphia are highlighted), and major awards won. Sprinkled throughout the book are sidebars in which the survey participants describe memorable Philadelphia games that they attended. Philadelphia is renowned for its loyal, passionate, and knowledgeable sports fans, who love to read, discuss, and argue about the city s professional teams and athletes. The survey results and quotes will stimulate considerable debate among readers. Any Philadelphia sports fan from the diehard who watches every game to the casual fan who occasionally catches a game will find this book easy to read, entertaining, and informative.

Reviews - What do customers think about Philly Jocks: The Best Philadelphia Pro Athletes of Our Time?

A Great Read!  Nov 12, 2007
Mr. Brown has done it again with a very insightful and thoughtful sports read! I would highly recommend this book.
Philly Jocks  Oct 10, 2007
An outstanding debate on the best Philly athletes of the last 50 years. Brown offers up such wide ranging criteria for consideration that you can make the case for a varied list of athletes - and the Philly fans have done just that!

For a non Philadelphia fan/native the book is a great refresher on the careers of some of the lesser known and somewhat forgotten athletes of the city as well. Brown's done a great job of assembling long time local journalists, broadcasters and fans to add their personal anecdotes to the mix as well.

I say this with all due affection but this is a great bathroom reader!
