A Book Review: From Peanuts to the Pressbox

From Peanuts to the Pressbox_Michael_H_Smith

If you are a true sports fan then you will love From Peanuts to the Pressbox by Eli Gold. The pages are filled with an inside look at both the stars and sportscasters of a variety of sports. From minor league hockey to Nascar, from SEC football to the AFL and many things in between. Eli Gold, the radio voice of the University of Alabama football team for the last 20 years, relates his life long quest to be where he is, working in the pressbox of major sporting events. It is the story of a young boy dreaming, a young man working to achieve the dream and a man realizing the dream.

Mr. Gold shares stories of the bigger than life personalities are involved in sports. I often found myself laughing out loud at the life that was communicated. I even found myself remembering where I was during the events.

From Peanuts to the Pressbox is an easy read, very entertaining and was a great way to pass the time on a rainy day.
