It wasMoreFor more than a decade, Steve Rushin has been one of our premiere sportswriters, a four-time finalist for the National Magazine Award-most recently in 2004. Publishers Weekly listed his previous book, Road Swing, among the Best Books of 1998. It was also named one of the Top 100 Sports Books of All Time by Sports Illustrated, for which Rushin writes the tremendously popular Air and Space column. The Caddie Was a Reindeer collects the best of Rushins beloved columns and acclaimed features. Rushin takes us on everything from an eating tour of Americas baseball stadiums, where the jumbo dog is being replaced by tofu and sushi, to a 180-mph journey through the mountains of Germany, where the worlds most treacherous racetrack is now open to anyone insane enough to drive it. When not tossing back pints with the King of Darts in London or participating in excessive nightclubbing with World Cup soccer players, Rushin offers his skewed takes on old standbys like baseball, hockey, and football. Enlightening, hilarious, and often unexpectedly heartwarming, The Caddie Was a Reindeer leaves us laughing out loud about the sports we didnt know existed, and reminds us why we love the sports we do.
