Fans Wept. The Crowd Cheered. The Announcers Went Wild. You Just Had To Be There. And You Can Be.

In words and images--and on two audio CDs narrated by award-winning sports journalist Bob Costas--And The Crowd Goes Wild brings to life the spine-tingling moments that brought us to our feet.

From bleachers to box seats to living room sofas, devoted fans and casual observers yearn for the thrill of last-minute heroics, underdog victories or the crowning moment of a champion's career.

And The Crowd Goes Wild recounts forty-seven of the most memorable moments in sports and spotlights the photographs that tell the stories. Accompanying the book, two digitally mastered CDs contain over two hours of audio, including the actual calls of the announcers who were just as excited, surprised and awestruck as the fans.

Their words--and the emotional charge in their voices--take you back to the heart-stopping thrill of the event, when an athlete triumphed...and the crowd went wild!

Relive the greatest broadcast moments in sports, in words and two audio CDs.

Enjoyed thumbing through the book, and loved the CD that comes inside the book. As a track and field fan, I was glad to see the Billy Mills 1964 10,000m surprise victory and the Bob Beamon 1968 astounding long jump world record among the moments chosen.
