Descrizione libro Gill, Ireland, 2014. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. National treasure Jimmy Magee recalls the huge number of historic sporting events that he has witnessed during a career which has spanned seven decades and is still going strong today.The Memory Man-a sobriquet earned for his uncanny ability to recall virtually any sporting trivia-not only gives us his entertaining and forensic insight into which sporting moments he believes can be justifiably described as in a Different Class, but sports fans will also be thrilled to finally discover who Jimmy Magee really thinks is the best of the best-or the most over-rated for that matter-in soccer, GAA, rugby, boxing, golf, athletics and many other sports. The maestro of memories has anecdotes about the hundreds of iconic sport heroes he has had the privilege of meeting during his travels. The pages of Different Class are bursting with legendary figures: Muhammad Ali, Pele, Eddie Merckx, Maradona and Matt Busby. Fans of Irish sport won t be disappointed either, with Jimmy Magee casting a critical eye over the likes of George Best, Katie Taylor, Jack Charlton, Sean Kelly, Brian O Driscoll, Rory McIlroy, Stephen Roche, Roy Keane, Sonia O Sullivan, and virtually anyone who s been anybody in the GAA.With such a stellar cast, this book is definitely in a Different Class.
