From the Inside Flap
Sid Hartman is a legend. As a StarTribune sportswriter, he’s been at the heart of Minnesota sports for more than six decades. He calls them as he sees them, pulls no punches, and often comes up with the inside scoop from his close, personal friends.
Now, Sid collects the biggest stories that have defined Minnesota sports for the last sixty years and beyond. Relive George Mikan’s unstoppable Lakers dynasty, Harmon Killebrew’s home run blasts, and the Vikings’ Super Bowl heartbreaks. Marvel in Randy Moss’ improbable catches, Kevin Garnett’s slam-dunks, and Johan Santana’s blazing fastball. From the glory years of the original Millers, Saints, Lakers, and North Stars to today’s Gophers, Twins, Vikings, Wolves, and Wild, it’s all here—and told as never before!
More than 200 action-packed photographs from the StarTribune’s award-winning photographers bring the great moments to life.
