What fans don't love to relive the good times of their favorite team? Likewise, in a twisted sort of way, what fans can really resist a self-pitying look back on some of those times that tested their allegiance? Those disastrous games, seasons, and plays that made the good times even better? The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly includes the best and worst teams and players of all time, the most clutch performances and performers, the biggest choke jobs and chokers, great comebacks and blown leads, plus overrated and underrated players and coaches. If you're a through-thick-and-thin sports fan, The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly is especially for you. It will remind you of the great times and bring a smile to your face knowing you stuck with the team through the bad times, proving your loyalty. For everyone else, this warts-and-all portrait will provide countless fond memories, goose bumps, and laughs.
Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the Cincinnati Reds documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining--and unsparing--fashion, this book sparkles with Reds highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include "the Big Red Machine" going to the World Series in 1975 and the opening of the Great American Ball Park, as well as the disastrous 1982 season and the infamous Pete Rose gambling scandal. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.
