Heydays is required reading for the Chicago sports fan. * "There is only one man I call 'Coach'--George Halas." So said the legendary Vince Lombardi. * A teammate declared that rookie Michael Jordan was "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth." * Mike Ditka said, "Walter Payton is the greatest football player I've ever seen. At any position. Period." * "Without Ernie Banks," a former White Sox manager remarked, "the Cubs would finish in Albuquerque." Heydays relives the exploits of these and other immortals and celebrates unforgettable teams such as the 1908 Cubs, 1919 White Sox, 1940 Bears, 1963 Loyola Ramblers, 1985 Bears, 1996 Bulls, and many more. Here is a century's worth of the people, teams, and events that have made Chicago the greatest sports town there is--from the crosstown World Series of 1906 to the world-champion White Sox of 2005, and everything in between. Heydays is an ideal companion for any Chicago sports fan.
