Based off the book that made a legend, Paper Lion captures America´s sport in detail that´s never been matched and now features an introduction by Tom Wolfe. George Plimpton was perhaps best known for Paper Lion, the book that set the bar for participatory sports journalism. With his characteristic wit, Plimpton recounts his experiences in talking his way into training camp with the Detroit Lions, practicing with the team, and taking snaps behind center. His breezy style captures the pressures and tensions rookies confront, the hijinks that pervade when 60 high-strung guys live together in close quarters, and a host of football rites and rituals. One of the funniest and most insightful audiobooks ever written on football, Paper Lion is a classic look at the gridiron game. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Woren.

Fibber McGee & Molly had a long and successful run on radio (1935-1959). The program showcased terrific comic and musical talent, headlined by its creators and stars, married couple Jim and Marian Jordan. Living in the fictional Midwestern town of Wistful Vista, Fibber was an American teller of tall tales and a braggart, usually to the exasperation of his long-suffering wife Molly. Life in Wistful Vista followed a well-developed formula, but was always fresh. Fibber’s weekly schemes would be interrupted, inspired by, and often played upon the people of Wistful Vista, a set of regular players and characters including Mayor LaTrivia, Doc Gamble, Mrs. Uppington, Wallace Wimple, Alice Darling, Beulah, Myrt, the Old Timer and Fibber’s next-door neighbor, Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve. The program used a series of running gags that would become part of the common language, many treasures can be found in the Closet at 79 Wistful Vista. The show began as a comic reflection of Depression Era America, but as time went on and the shadows of war came over the nation, the show again caught the mood of the country. WWII was fought on the Home front at Wistful Vista as surely as anywhere else in America, but here they had the benefit of Fibber’s somewhat addled perspective.Now, enjoy 12 of their funniest radio broadcasts.10/7/47 Football Game Anniversary10/14/47 Catching Teeny’s Cat10/21/47 Late Car Payment10/28/47 Big Deal at the Farm11/4/47 McGee Gets Weighed11/11/47 War Surplus Store12/30/47 $10 Gift Certificate1/6/48 Magic Act1/13/48 Portable Radio1/20/48 Molly’s Pickles1/27/48 Missing Laundry2/3/48 McGee Makes a Lamp 1.
