    A couple of years ago I gave up doing reviews in exchange for a free book since my "to read" stack was getting way too high. However, when I was approached by Rob to do this one I decided in light of my enjoyment of his prior book on the 100 best games to make an exception. For some background on my history with Boston, check my review on the prior book related to the 100 greatest games.

However, when I was approached by Rob to do this one I decided in light of my enjoyment of his prior book on the 100 best games to make an exception. For some background on my history with Boston, check my review on the prior book related to the 100 greatest games. This one, in a similar vein, is sure to arouse controversy but I have no quarrel with the methodology or the reporting. It was a great walk down memory lane being reintroduced to the great clutch players of Boston across a wide variety of sports and times. Some players were well before my time so it was great to learn more about them, some like Tom Brady aren't quite finished yet. I was surprised to find the topic expanded beyond team sports to include boxing (Marciano, Sullivan) and marathon running (Dick Hoyt). The item on Hoyt mentioned John Kelly who ran the Boston Marathon 61 times. Kelly was a friend of my fathers and once came to run in our small town of Wilton, NH as a warm-up so great to have that memory re-kindled! So folks, it is not just the "Red Sox Nation" that exists in pockets all over the country, it is also Boston fans of the Celtics, Bruins and Patriots that form the "Boston Sports Nation". For them, this is a great 5 star book. For others, probably not so much. After a recap of the sporting events that led to the athlete's inclusion on this list is an italicized paragraph as to what happened to them when their career was over. Sort of a "where are they now" section which I feel adds a lot. Most enjoyable read for those of us raised in New England!

    A quick and entertaining read through Boston sports history I enjoyed this book more for the players that I knew so little about, especially the early Bruins and Celtics legends. The more modern Patriots and Red Sox chapters were nothing really new to me, but I enjoyed the entire book nonetheless.
