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.”

I can trace my entire adult life back to just one moment. One girl. One lie. If you were to ask me now why I told the lie I did, I’m really not sure I could answer the question. Actually that’s not true; basically I told the lie to get laid. It’s why I told that particular lie that I can’t quite explain. From unwitting entertainer to extreme sports athlete and then professional pilot, The Accidental Stripper is a chronicle of a life who's path was set with one snap decision. One off the cuff remark that led to a life lived along the lunatic fringe. Sex, drugs and rock and roll are the most normal ingredients in a recipe that cooked up into one seriously funny, outrageous and over the top version of a life less ordinary. Twisted and ridiculous, shocking and at times a bit disgusting, you simply won't believe what some peoples version of normal is!

ing Myths: Fifteen Wrong Ideas in Youth Sports
₱ 2,011.00
Galleon

Unlike the generations of coaches that have gone before them, today's coaches are expected not only to teach motor skills to young athletes but to do so in an environment that is conducive to the ethical, emotional, social and physical well-being of each one of them. Each of the 15 chapters of this book presents, and then systematically debunks, the most pervasive, persistent and potentially harmful myths in coaching, including such chestnuts as "play by my rules," "winning is the ultimate goal" and "there's no I in 'team.'" Although the information in every chapter is based on current scientific evidence (and there are numerous source notes), each is written in the everyday language of coaches and covers topics that are of particular interest to coaches, parents, athletic administrators, recreation programming specialists--and even the occasional fan.

Rising Above: Inspiring Women in Sports
₱ 1,415.00
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

gea rheads: The Turbulent Rise of Robotic Sports
₱ 2,096.00

In the early nineties, a visionary special-effects guru named Marc Thorpe conjured a field of dreams different from any the world had seen before: It would be framed by unbreakable plastic instead of cornstalks; populated not by ghostly ballplayers but by remote-controlled robots, armed to the steely teeth, fighting in a booby-trapped ring. If you built it, they'd come all right.... In Gearheads, Newsweek technology correspondent Brad Stone examines the history of robotic sports, from their cultish early years at universities and sci-fi conventions to today's televised extravaganzas -- and the turmoil that threatened the whole enterprise almost from the beginning. By turns a lively historical narrative, a legal thriller, and an exploration of a cultural and technological phenomenon, Gearheads is a funny and fascinating look at the sport of the future today.

Dueling with Kings: High Stakes, Killer Sharks, and the Get-Rich Promise of Daily Fantasy Sports
₱ 1,580.00
Galleon

In the spirit of Bringing Down the House and The Wolf of Wall Street , “an engrossing and often hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the characters, compulsions, and chaos inside the fantasy sports gold rush. It’s the perfect meld of a sports and business book, engagingly written like a fun, page-turning novel” ( The Wall Street Journal ). Daniel Barbarisi quit his job as a New York Yankees beat writer and began a quest to join the top one percent of Daily Fantasy Sports (“DFS”) players, the so-called “sharks,” in hopes to discover the secrets behind this phenomenon—and potentially make some money along the way. DFS is fantasy sports on steroids. It’s the domain of bitter rivals FanDuel and DraftKings, online juggernauts who turned a legal loophole into a billion-dollar industry by allowing sports fans to bet piles of cash constructing fantasy teams. Yet as Barbarisi quickly realizes, what should have been a fun companion to casual sports viewing was instead a ferocious environment infested with sharks, a top tier of pros wielding complex algorithms, drafting hundreds of lineups, and wagering six figures daily as they bludgeon unsuspecting amateur “fish.” Barbarisi embeds himself inside the world of DFS, befriending and joining its rogue’s gallery as he tries to beat them at their own game. In a work equal parts adventure and rigorously reported investigation, Barbarisi wades into this chaotic industry at the very moment its existence is threatened by lawmakers sick of its Wild West atmosphere and pushy advertising. All their money made FanDuel and DraftKings seem invincible; but, as Barbarisi reports, they made plenty of dubious—perhaps even scandalous—moves as they vied for market supremacy. In Dueling with Kings , Barbarisi uncovers the tumultuous inside story of DFS, all while capturing its peculiar cast of characters, from wide-eyed newly minted millionaires, to sun-starved math geeks, to bros living an endless frat party of keggers and Playboy Bunnies. Can he outwit them all and make it to the top?

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.

It is not only a pictorial history of the sport but also a tale of heroes and villains, gangsters and mobsters, contenders and bums, trainers and newspapermen, straight men and cheats.

Sullivan won the heavyweight crown from Paddy Ryan in 1882, he took prizefighting from an illegal, red-light district pastime to the countryís most popular sport and in essence put Bean Town on the sporting map.

By 1950, roller skating had emerged as the number-one participatory sport in America. Ironically, the war years launched the Golden Age of Roller Skating. Soldiers serving overseas pleaded for skates along with their usual requests for cigarettes and letters from home. Stateside, skating uplifted morale and kept war factory workers exercising. By the end of the decade, five thousand rinks operated across the country. Its epicenter: Chicago! And no one was left behind! The Blink Bats, a group of Braille Center skaters, held their own at the huge Broadway Armory rink. Meanwhile, the Swank drew South Side crowds to its knee-action floor and stocked jukebox. Eighteen celebrated rinks are now gone, but rinks that remain honor the traditions of the sport's glory years. Author Tom Russo scoured newspaper archives and interviewed skaters of the roller capital's heyday to reveal the enduring legacy of Chicago's rink rats.

Two Supreme Court decisions, NCAA v. Board of Regents (1984) and NCAA v.

Brian L. Porto examines the conditions that led to the cases, the reasoning behind the rulings, and the consequences of those rulings. He proposes a federal statute that would grant the NCAA a limited "educational exemption" from antitrust laws, enabling it to enhance academic opportunities for athletes and affording greater procedural protections to accused parties in NCAA disciplinary proceedings.

For more than half a century, Minnesotans have been treated to the memorable players and teams of the Minnesota Twins. From the Ruthian blasts of Harmon Killebrew and Kirby Puckett to a successful brand of "small ball," the Twins have fielded competitive teams at Metropolitan Stadium, the Metrodome and Target Field.

Sports historian Stew Thornley highlights the lesser-known events in the club's history, from the area's attempts to lure a major-league team to town in the 1950s to then-owner Calvin Griffith's campaign to regionally rename the team. He also pays tribute to the rich heritage of baseball before the Twins, marked by minor-league teams such as the St. Paul Saints and Minneapolis Millers, which produced future Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Duke Snider, Ted Williams and Roy Campanella.

s Way: Football, Florida, and the Lost Soul of College Sports
₱ 2,170.00
Galleon

A searing exposé of how the multibillion dollar college sports empire fails universities, students, and athletes. With little public debate or introspection, our institutions of higher learning have become hostages to the rapacious, smash-mouth entertainment conglomerate known, quaintly, as intercollegiate athletics. In Champions Way , New York Times investigative reporter Mike McIntire chronicles the rise of this growing scandal through the experience of the Florida State Seminoles, one of the most successful teams in NCAA history. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for his Times investigation of college sports, McIntire breaks new ground here, uncovering the workings of a system that enables athletes to violate academic standards and avoid criminal prosecution for actions ranging from shoplifting to drunk driving. At the heart of Champions Way is the untold story of a whistle-blower, Christie Suggs, and her wrenching struggle to hold a corrupt system to account. Together with shocking new details about prominent sports figures, including NFL quarterback Jameis Winston and former FSU coach Bobby Bowden, Champions Way shines a light on the ethical, moral, and legal compromises inherent in the making of a championship sports program. Beyond the story of Florida State, McIntire takes readers on a journey through the history of college football, from its origins as a roughneck pastime coached by nineteenth-century professors to its current incarnation as a gold-plated behemoth that long ago outgrew its scholastic environs. Illuminated in rich and disturbing detail is the hidden financial ecosystem that nourishes hundred-million-dollar teams, from the hustlers who recruit players for schools and the athletic departments controlled by rich boosters to the universities whose academic mission and moral authority have been undermined. More than pointing out flaws, McIntire examines their causes and offers hope to those who would reform college sports.

Home of the Athletics for 46 years, the Phillies for 32 and a half seasons, and the Eagles for 18 years, it was also the site of many boxing matches, Negro League baseball games, and college and high school baseball and football games. Over the years, as the area developed, Shibe Park became known for its obstructed views, delicious hot dogs, Sunday curfews, absence of beer, and boobirds. Along with memorable teams and games, the ballpark played host to eight World Series and two All-Star Games.

The Miseducation of the Student Athlete: How to Fix College Sports
₱ 1,329.00
Galleon

The student-athlete’s life: practice, gym, weight room, film review, repeat. Simply put, sports come first. Academics is a distant second. As the revenues generated by big-time college sports continue to skyrocket, virtually all of the debate involves whether (and how much) student-athletes should be paid for play. Kenneth L. Shropshire and Collin D. Williams, Jr., argue that ”student” has to come first in student-athlete: the focus should be on prioritizing a meaningful education. In The Miseducation of the Student Athlete: How to Fix College Sports, Shropshire and Williams draw on new research to reveal that it has become increasingly difficult for college athletes to balance school and sports, much less a social life, leading to serious economic, professional, and emotional consequences for young people. Given that fewer than 2% of all college men’s basketball and football players will play at the professional level, the other 98% of student-athletes must be prepared to find and perform well in jobs outside of their respective field of play. In this bold call to action, Shropshire and Williams explain how we got here and what can be done about it. They lay out The Student-Athlete Manifesto, a roadmap to increase the likelihood that student-athletes can succeed both on and off the field. They also offer a Meaningful Degree Model, which ensures education pays for everyone, along with stories of success that show it is possible to be both a student and an athlete. A critical read for student-athletes, sports leadership, policy makers, and anyone who loves college sports, The Miseducation of the Student Athlete has the potential to disrupt college sport and create lasting change.

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. The book gives an in-depth look on Muhammad Ali’s life and his rise to become a legend in his own right. Remnick talks about that fateful night in 1964 when Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) stepped into the ring with Sonny Liston and eventually became the new world heavyweight champion. Not only that, he accounts on how this enigmatic sportsman transformed America’s racial politics, popular culture, and the nation’s notion on heroism; a worthy tribute to one of the greatest athletes and dynamic personalities of our time.

Moneyball by Micheal Lewis

Moneyball gives a clinical and insightful analysis of how general manager Billy Beane utilised statistics and data to turn the fate of Oakland Athletics – an underfunded and unflavoured baseball team – into one of the best teams in baseball. Micheal Lewis writes about Beane’s uncanny ability to identify players who were disregarded by traditional scouting networks and making them into highly efficient performers. Lewis brilliantly turns this statistical and analytical piece into a gripping anecdote, making it into a suitable read for almost everyone. This book and the methods mentioned in it have been used by managers of football clubs to emulate Beane’s success.

The Secret Race by Tyler Hamilton & Daniel Coyle

Through The Secret Race, Daniel Coyle explicitly brings readers to unseen parts of the Tour de France and the methods used to ensure that they win at all costs. The book is written based on testimonies and confessions from professional cyclist Tyler Hamilton, revealing the dark and corrupted world of competitive cycling. Published just days before the USADA report confirmed the doping of Lance Armstrong’s cycling team, this book provides the most detailed account of what actually happened. Intricate details – names, places, doctors, methods – are revealed, enlightening readers about previously unknown secrets about competitive cycling.

A Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke by Ronald Reng

Ronald Reng’s biography of former German goalkeeper Robert Enke transcends beyond just football; it also covers his family life, depression, and the internal angst of a group of people whom many perceived as invincible figures. This book highlights the highs and lows of Enke’s career and his life. It is one of the most heart-wrenching sports books of recent years, a reminder that no one is indestructible.
