1996 A Biography Reliving the Legend-Packed, Dynasty-Stacked, Most Iconic Sports Year Ever

by | Read by Barry Abrams

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

If you think you know sports from the mid-1990s, Jon Finkel's audiobook may surprise you. He covers the gamut of big players, teams, and moments from that time and their effects on popular culture. One example is the influence of Seattle Mariners outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr., and his backwards cap. Narrator Barry Abrams's delivery of one-liners and creative descriptions fits the author perfectly. He enthusiastically brings the multitude of moments to life with his sardonic voice and fun attitude. When quoting someone--a British boxer, for instance, or a coach from the South--he creates an appropriate voice. From Mike Tyson to the Olympics, the incredible Chicago Bulls, and more, Finkel and Abrams have the bases, courts, and fields covered. A perfect marriage of writer, subject, and narrator.
