Rizzuto, Phil

O Holy Cow!

The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto

Expanded

€ 20.64

Phil Rizzuto, famed shortstop and broadcaster extraordinaire for the New York Yankees, has waxed poetic on America's favorite pastime since the glorious days of Mantle and Maris. For more than a quarter century the Bard of the Booth has captured great moments in baseball - and effortlessly woven them together with essential and often hilarious insights into the human condition. Editors Tom Peyer and Hart Seely have forever captured Rizzuto's unmistakable voice in this collection, which gathers his funniest and most inspiring verses - from comments on Maris getting booed to explications of how the Red Sox control the weather. With an introduction by Roy Blount, Jr., and game stats following each poem, "O Holy Cow!" is a must for baseball fans, Scooter devotees, and everyone interested in major league fun.
