Description

"A trove of tales--some poignant, even tragic; many hilarious." -- Akron Beacon Journal

Dan Coughlin serves up a second rollicking collection of stories about colorful characters and memorable events from his four decades covering sports for Cleveland TV and newspapers.

Meet the gun-toting fanatics of Morgana Park--once home of "the most intense slow pitch softball league in the world." Sit in on a star-studded night in the legendary Theatrical Restaurant alongside Don King while Coughlin flips a coin for a $500 bar tab with Ted Turner. Ride along on a series of death-defying, top-priority helicopter trips to report on . . . high school football.

Reading Coughlin's stories is like dipping into a bowl of bar nuts--easy to start and hard to stop
