EA st Lake Golf Club (Images of Sports)
₱ 2,291.00
Galleon

East Lake Golf Club was heralded as “one of the finest in the United States” when its first holes were completed in 1907. Bobby Jones called East Lake his home course, as did Alexa Stirling, Watts Gunn, and Charlie Yates. It flourished in the early 1900s as the Atlanta Athletic Club’s country club. However, as Atlanta’s population shifted to the northern suburbs, East Lake suffered, and in the mid-1960s the AAC sold the property and moved to Johns Creek. In the 1990s, developer Tom Cousins stepped in to restore East Lake. Today, the historical East Lake Golf Club is again considered among the finest courses in the United States and is host to tournament play. The motto adopted at its rebirth rings true: “Golf with a Purpose.”

gu ided Muscles For Winning Sports
₱ 2,717.00
Galleon

DOWNSIDE TO PRESENT FITNESS ELIMINATED Aerobics, sports and exercise has an unknown disastrous downside. It is the tension from most muscles in your body. Everyone contracts all muscles against each other to create movement, when only a few do the movement. Others resist it, and also cut off blood flow and breathing. Experts advice made you worse. Guided MusclesSM form, based on narrowed down physical laws, has you relaxing most of your muscles immediately after learning them. You can start walking and running faster, have greater sports swing speed, aim better, and lift greater loads. All with greater circulation and respiration. Better than credentials, here’s an immediately convincing example: Dropping your feet consistently at the same spot, is the only thing that keeps you in place with the frame of the treadmill. Not a push with muscles. Drop your feet more to the rear, and your speed increase to bump you into the front of the treadmill. Drop your feet more to the front, and your speed decreases to send you off the back of the treadmill. Your legs act as vaulting poles when you just land and stand still while the hip rests on it and gets vaulted straight ahead by momentum and gravity. Everything in this book works immediately like this example, others never do.

WINNER OF THE 2017 ISHA'S SKADE AWARD Relive the exciting early days of skiing when Snoqualmie Pass was the epicenter of the sport. Ski jumping tournaments attracted world-class competitors to Cle Elum, Beaver Lake on the Summit and the Milwaukee Ski Bowl. The Mountaineers' twenty-mile race from Snoqualmie to Stampede Pass, dubbed "the world's longest and hardest race," was a pinnacle of cross-country skiing. Alpine skiing began in private ski clubs and expanded in 1934 with the country's first municipal ski area, known as the Seattle Municipal Ski Park. And the sport peaked when the Milwaukee Ski Bowl at Hyak opened in 1938. With train access, a modern ski lodge, an overhead cable lift and free ski lessons from the Seattle Times , the Ski Bowl revolutionized local skiing. Lawyer and local ski historian John W. Lundin follows the historic tracks through the genesis of American skiing.

Arriving by train to Phoenicia, New York, in the mid-1930s, downhill skiers first discovered the snowy trails of Simpson Ski Slope. Soon after, many Borscht Belt hotels were offering skiing and skating as ways to fill rooms during cold winter months when crowds thinned. In the high central Catskills, where abundant snowfall was a big draw, many abandoned rooming houses were commandeered to serve as base lodges for fledgling ski areas. In addition to farming and logging, skiing became an important industry to the area. People found steady employment in dozens of new areas sprouting all over the mountains. Downhill skiing is just part of the region’s history. Ski jumping, racing, ski clubs, fashion, and colorful personalities were all part of the experience.

Canterbury, Firestone and other great courses in the area have been the site of a host of major PGA and amateur championships. All the great players from the past century-plus have walked the fairways of Northeast Ohio, including Hagen, Snead, Palmer, Nicklaus, Woods, and even Bobby Jones and Harry Vardon.

Rising Above: Inspiring Women in Sports
₱ 1,352.00
Galleon

Behold the power of women! These are the inspirational real-life stories of female superstar athletes Serena and Venus Williams, Simone Biles, Carli Lloyd, and more -- role models all. For sports fans, aspiring athletes and readers of sports biographies. Growing up in a crime-plagued, gang-infested neighborhood, Venus and Serena Williams were led to believe their environment was not a place where dreams could come true. It took a relentless determination, a burning desire to be the best, and a willingness to conquer racial barriers for them to emerge as tennis legends. Simone Biles was raised by a single mother with addiction issues, forcing her grandparents to intervene. But Simone soon discovered balance beams and gymnastics mats, setting her on a path toward Olympic greatness. Carli Lloyd, meanwhile, believed her youth soccer career was really starting to take off, only to be cut from her team. Instead of quitting the sport she loved, Carli rebuilt her confidence from the ground up, ultimately becoming one of the leaders on the World Cup Champion US Women's Soccer team. The athletes featured in this book met earth-shaking challenges head on, and through hard work and perseverance, went on to conquer the sports world. This collection of mini biographies, complete with first-hand content drawn from interviews, is a source of inspiration and self-empowerment for kids and sports fans of all ages. Also included in the book: Wilma Rudolph (track and field), Mo'ne Davis (Little League baseball), Swin Cash (basketball), Elena Delle Donne (basketball), Bethany Hamilton (surfing), Ronda Rousey (mixed martial arts), and Kerri Strug (gymnastics). Praise for Rising Above: Inspiring Women in Sports : "An inspiring, empowering collection of true stories of perseverance and resolve." -- Kirkus Reviews "This is a good choice for libraries where biographies about current newsmakers are in demand." -- School Library Connection "What will inspire athletes of any ability or gender is how these women turned to help when needed and learned to accept themselves inside and out." -- Booklist "A varied and inspiring collection of sports biographies." -- School Library Journal

The Meaning Of Sports
₱ 1,790.00
Galleon

In The Meaning of Sports , Michael Mandelbaum, a sports fan who is also one of the nation's preeminent foreign policy thinkers, examines America's century-long love affair with team sports. In keeping with his reputation for writing about big ideas in an illuminating and graceful way, he shows how sports respond to deep human needs; describes the ways in which baseball, football and basketball became national institutions and how they reached their present forms; and covers the evolution of rules, the rise and fall of the most successful teams, and the historical significance of the most famous and influential figures such as Babe Ruth, Vince Lombardi, and Michael Jordan. Whether he is writing about baseball as the agrarian game, football as similar to warfare, basketball as the embodiment of post-industrial society, or the moral havoc created by baseball's designated hitter rule, Mandelbaum applies the full force of his learning and wit to subjects about which so many Americans care passionately: the games they played in their youth and continue to follow as adults. By offering a fresh and unconventional perspective on these games, The Meaning of Sports makes for fascinating and rewarding reading both for fans and newcomers.

Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race (Images of Sports)
₱ 1,751.00
Galleon

The Yukon Quest is more than just a sled dog race. It was the dream of two Fairbanksans―a recreational musher and an amateur historian―who conceived of a race closer to the roots of Alaskan dog sledding. The Yukon Quest is a 1,000-mile slog through trails used only for this race that cross mountains, rivers, and lakes in some of the harshest weather on the planet. It celebrates the history of the dogs that carried freight and delivered mail, dogs that many times over saved lives before the advent of aviation and snowmachines made them obsolete. The inaugural Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race of 1984 was a great success with the wholehearted support of the Fairbanks community, and it has become a much-anticipated annual event ever since.

For sled dog–racing fans worldwide, the most important calendar day is the first Saturday in March, when teams convene for the start of mushing’s Superbowl―the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race®. Every year, as it has since 1973, this ultimate challenge begins in the state’s most populated city, Anchorage, and then dives into the Alaska Bush on a historic trail that wends over mountain ranges, along frozen rivers, and onto the Bering Sea ice. The finish line lies 1,000-plus miles away in Nome, beneath a giant, burled archway. There, dogs and their drivers are greeted by masses of locals, vacationing fans, officials, media, and other mushers who intimately know what that team has just endured. To simply finish is the goal for entrants; to win is the accomplishment of a rare few. Indeed, more people have climbed Mount Everest than have finished the Iditarod®.

Navy Football: Return to Glory (Sports)
₱ 1,714.00

Navy football holds a unique place in college athletics as one of the oldest and most prestigious programs the game has ever known. During the 1950s and 1960s, the Midshipmen were nationally recognized by the major bowl games they played and Heisman Trophy-winning players Joe Bellino and Roger Staubach. Although the program struggled mightily to maintain relevancy in subsequent years, Athletic Director Chet Gladchuk kick-started the renaissance of Navy football by hiring Coach Paul Johnson in 2001. The team's current coach, Ken Niumatalolo, once fired by the academy in the dining room of a McDonald's in 1998, returned to become the winningest coach in school history. Author T.C. Cameron charts the story of Navy football and steers readers through the reemergence of an iconic program representing our nation's finest.

He's spoken out against war, helped Oklahoma prisoners write poetry and rallied against police brutality...But, Thomas says he's not alone: that social issues dominate what athletes talk about behind closed doors." -- Tulsa World "Etan confronts our collective challenges and reminds us that life is not just a game, but demands a constant struggle for justice." -- Amy Goodman, Democracy Now Featuring interviews by former NBA player Etan Thomas with over fifty athletes, executives, media figures, and more--and interwoven with essays and critiques by Thomas-- We Matter shares the personal tales and opinions of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell, Dwyane Wade, Russell Westbrook, Steve Kerr, Oscar Robertson, Mark Cuban, Michael Bennett, Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose, Swin Cash, Alonzo Mourning, Chris Webber, Jemele Hill, Anquan Boldin, Jamal Crawford, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson, Shannon Sharpe, James Blake, John Carlos, Laila Ali, Michael Eric Dyson, Joakim Noah, Eric Reid, Adam Silver, Soledad O'Brien, John Wall, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Bradley Beal, Tamika Catchings, Curtis Conway, Harry Edwards, Chris Hayes, Chamique Holdsclaw, Scoop Jackson, Bomani Johnes, Shaun King, Jimmy King, Ted Leonsis, Thabo Sefolosha, Ilyasah Shabazz, Torrey Smith, Kenny Smith, Michael Smith, David West, Michael Wilbon, Jahvaris Fulton (brother of Trayvon Martin), Emerald Snipes (daughter of Eric Garner), Allysza Castile (sister of Philando Castile), Valerie Castile (mother of Philando Castile), and Dr. Tiffany Crutcher (sister of Terence Crutcher).

Backboard (Eric Lewis Sports)

Eric Lewis and his football/basketball teammates get little rest between their championship season on the gridiron and the beginning of basketball season. But they would have it no other way. One challenge accomplished and another one on the horizon. The hoops team is full of returning starters which bodes well for the Comets. After a heart breaking defeat in the State Final a year ago the veteran Crater team is ready to take the final step and win their third State title in a row, following the baseball and football championship seasons. With last year's leading scorer now playing in college it will be Eric's task to pick up the scoring slack. He is surrounded by three other returning starters; the twin forwards, Thomas and Toby Hart-Zoller and point guard Luke Alwood. The new starter is 6' 7" junior center Robby Cowan. Three other letter winners will provide needed depth, and they will be bolstered by two promising sophomore athletes. Many people feel this squad might well be better than last season's runner-up group. Rumor has it Coach Edwards might be in his last season after a long and very successful career. If true, the entire team and fan base would like nothing better than to send him into retirement with a state championship.

Good Game: Christianity and the Culture of Sports
₱ 3,162.00
Galleon

In recent years the United States has seen an influx of Christian athletes and coaches into big-time sports, as well as a heightened importance placed on sports in church programs and enormous platforms for intercollegiate sports at Christian schools and colleges. However, as Shirl Hoffman critiques, a Christian vision of sport remains merely superficial―replete with prayers before free throws and praises after touchdowns but offering little if any alternative vision from the secular sports culture. Far from being the kind of life-affirming, faith-affirming events that they could be, games played in Christian college gymnasiums, for example, too often end up as mockeries of the faith statements given prominence in their mission statements. Here, in this thoughtful, narrative-driven exploration, Hoffman retells numerous fascinating stories from the world of ancient and contemporary sports and draws on the history of the Christian tradition as he seeks to answer the question "What would it mean to think Christianly about sport?"

If there is a place where the ghosts of baseball players come at night to relive their glory days, it is Warren Ballpark in the old copper-mining town of Bisbee, Arizona. Warren Ballpark has been in use as a sports facility since 1909―longer than any other ballpark in the United States. Some of the most colorful and notable figures in baseball history have stepped onto its field as barnstorming big leaguers or as minor-league players hoping to make their way up to the “Big Show.” Several players implicated in the infamous 1919 “Black Sox” scandal played in an “outlaw” league at Warren Ballpark during the 1920s. In 1917, it was the holding facility for 1,500 striking copper miners rounded up during the Bisbee Deportation. It is also the site of one of the longest-running and most bitterly contested high school football rivalries in America, between the Bisbee Pumas and the Douglas Bulldogs.

Sports Books You Should Have if You are A Sports Enthusiasts in the Philippines

If you have a sport that you would like to know more about, books related to the sport are a useful resource for you to understand it better. Sports books are available in many forms, from pictorials of legendary moments throughout a sport’s history, biographies of sports legends, to in-depth analysis on the development of the sport to date. Unlike most sports magazines that cover a variety of topics – related or non-related to each other – in one issue, sports books are usually more topic-centred, discussing content that's relevant to the title of the book itself. Below is a list of sports books that sports enthusiasts should own, or at least read.

King of the World by David Remnick

Written by New York editor David Remnick, King of the World features the story of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali and America in the 60s.
