Being Ted Williams: Growing Up with a Baseball Idol | Pull Up a Chair | Dick Enberg's Humorous Quotes for All Occasions
A tireless worker whose boyish enthusiasm for athletics has never diminished, Enberg ?rst walked into a radio station in 1956 to apply for a janitorial position. He wound up on the air instead and a legend was created. In the half-century that Enberg has been in the sportscasting business he has called everything from the World Series to the Super Bowl. Traveling across the country and around the world, Enberg has called football games in weather so frigid that his coffee froze before he could drink it, been challenged to a ?ght by an irate baseball player, led the Notre Dame band in a rendition of ÂThe 1812 Overture,â and been threatened with ejection at Wimbledon because he was shouting too loudly into his microphone. Those stories and hundreds more are told in Dick Enberg: Oh My! with wit and candor, as Enberg not only relives some of sportsâ greatest moments, but takes readers into the booth and behind the camera. ÂSportscasting is a kidâs dream come true,â he says, Âwhich is one of the reasons that I keep doing it. I canât let my dream go. Iâm still in love with what I do.â
