Recapture the excitement of Minnesota sports newly updated!In Tales from the Minnesota Gophers Sideline, Ray Christensen tells nearly 200 tales from all 11 men's sports at the University of Minnesota. The emphasis is largely on the last half of the 20th century, during which time Christensen did the radio play/by/play of Golden Gopher football for 50 consecutive seasons, 510 games, and U of M basketball for 45 straight seasons, 1,309 games. Christensen, a broadcasting award member of the College Football Hall of Fame, tells stories ranging from dramatic victories to more lighthearted, humorous events that combine to form a Big Ten tapestry, with the University of Minnesota at its core.From the Minnesota wrestlers' incredible comeback for a 2001 NCAA championship to the Gophers' game/ending field goals that led to remarkable upsets to the golf team's string of birdies that enabled the squad to make the cut and James McLean to capture the NCAA individual crown, the book covers it all. Perfect for the bookshelf of any fan of Gophers athletics! 15 black & white photographs
