Summary: In October 1998, Sourcebooks published We Interrupt This Broadcast -- a book and CD set by Joe Garner that featured the stories and actual broadcasts of the major news events of the twentieth century. Although audio books had been available before, this new "mixed media" approach presented readers with a vitally different opportunity, and they embraced it. Sourcebooks followed this New York Times bestseller with And The Crowd Goes Wild, a collection of memorable moments in sports history that also mixed text with audio and, like its predecessor, made its way to the New York Times bestseller list. In 2000, Sourcebooks published two more mixed media books: And The Fans Roared, a follow-up to And The Crowd Goes Wild; and The Second City, a 40-year recollection of the theater and people that put Chicago comedy on the map. Sourcebooks also put a name to its growing list of mixed media products: Sourcebooks MediaFusion.Sourcebooks MediaFusion books enhance the traditional book experience by integrating multiple media -- text, audio and visuals -- into one lively package. Sourcebooks MediaFusion books have a unique "campfire" quality that invites participation and makes discussion groups an obvious opportunity.Own both And The Fans Roared and And The Crowd Goes Wild in a beautiful leather case. A perfect gift for the ultimate sports fan. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Rezension: Sports calls help us remember the best of times--who can forget the "Music City Miracle" (that's the "immaculate deception" to you, Bills fans)? "Touchdown, Titans! There are no flags on the field! It's a miracle!" They also help us remember the worst of times--such as the day the Vikings' Jim Marshall got a little confused after recovering a fumble. "Marshall is running the wrong way! Marshall is running the wrong way! And he's running it into the end zone the wrong way! Thinks he's scored a touchdown, and he's scored a safety!" Who doesn't grin when they hear Howard Cosell bellowing, "Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!" And who can forget the night Kareem Abdul-Jabbar broke the NBA career scoring record? From Babe Ruth's raspy thank-you in his farewell speech in 1947 to Tiger Woods's resounding victory in the 2000 U.S. Open, And the Fans Roared captures more of history's greatest sports calls.
Similar in format to its sister volume, And the Crowd Goes Wild, And the Fans Roared includes two CDs featuring 43 original sports calls, including Michael Jordan sinking "The Shot," Affirmed winning the Triple Crown, the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding soap opera, Tom Dempsey kicking a 63-yard game-winning field goal, Mike Tyson biting off a chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear, and Walter Payton breaking Jim Brown's career rushing record. The book sets up each event with capsule explanations, accompanied by stock photographs. Narrated by Bob Costas, And the Fans Roared will entertain any sports fan. --M. Stein
