From the moment that children start playing competitive sports, they dream of being the hero of a buzzer-beating victory, and this book and accompanying DVD chronicles 50 of the most memorable finishes in sports. Vibrant four-color photos, statistics, quotes, and stories offer fresh details on some of the most famous events in sports history, including “the Play” (Stanford vs. Cal), “the Ice Bowl,” Laettner's Buzzer-Beater, and N.C. State's Men's Basketball title. For those sports fans too young to have seen these famous moments or for those who wish to relive them over and over again, there is a exclusive DVD featuring sports icon Jim McKay, which features a detailed documentary on 20 of the highlights featured in the book.
