Manufacturer Description

From Mike Pesca, host of the popular Slate podcast The Essence, comes the best sports minds picturing how the world would change if a play, trade, injury, or referee's call had just gone the other way.

No commentator ever announced: "Up Rises Frazier!" "Havlicek devotes the nasty, trying to take the ball!" or "The Giants Lose the Pennant, The Giants Lose The Pennant!" Such moments are indelibly etched upon the mind of every sports fan. Or rather, they would be, had they took place. Sports are infamously video games of inches, when we conjure the idea of certain professional athletes - like Bill Buckner or Scott Norwood - we cannot help but apply a mental tape measure to the highlight reels of our minds. Players, coaches, and obviously fans, obsess on the play when they ask, "Exactly what if?" Upon Additional Review is the very first book to respond to that question.Upon Additional Review is a book of counterfactualsporting circumstances. In its pages the reader will find skillfully reported histories, where one little occasion is flipped on its head, and the resulting ripples are thoroughly recorded, the likes of ... Exactly what if the U.S. Boycotted Hitler's Olympics? Exactly What if Bobby Riggs beat Billie Jean King? Exactly What if Bucky Damage popped out at the foot of the Green Monster?What if Drew Bledsoe never got harmed?

Upon Additional Review takes classic arguments carried out over pints in a bar and puts them in the hands of dozens

of authors, professional athletes, and historians. From turning points that every sports fan rues or commemorates, to the forgotten potential inflection points that defined sports, Upon Additional Review answers age old questions, and settles the rating, even if ball game bounced off the crossbar.
