Summary

Cul de Canard (Duck’s Rump), Farefelue (The Crazy One), Plantureuse (Buxom Gal), Peute (The Ugly One)—the names are deliciously French but one would make a terrible mistake to think that only French-born trout like these fishing flies. “Design,” said Datus Proper, “is why this book has as much to do with the Henry’s Fork as with the Risle.” At least one of the flies introduced by French Fishing Flies more than twenty-five years ago, the Cul de Canard, has long since become a true staple in fly boxes around the world. Others will surely follow. This fascinating book is bound to be of great interest to fly fishermen everywhere.

    Join Mick Hubert, Voice of the Gators, as he relives, through radio high-lights, the 1993-94 Gator football and basketball seasons – a year which saw the University of Florida climb to the top of collegiate athletic programs. Capturing a second consecutive SEC Eastern Division title, the Florida Gators avenged a loss to Alabama the year before by beating the Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship game and earning a berth in the Sugar Bowl. Along the way, the Gator scored more points, totaled more yards and passed for more touchdowns than any team in conference history. Against undefeated West Virginia, the Gators rolled to a 41-7 Sugar Bowl win, for a school-record eleventh victory and a #5 ranking in the final AP poll. The Florida basketball team began the 1993-94 season largely unheralded, but shocking critics and fans alike, marched to victory after victory leaving in their wake major powers Kentucky, Texas and Oklahoma State. On their way to a school-record 29 victories, the Gators become SEC Eastern Divisions CO-Champions, SEC Tournament Runner-ups and ranked #14 in the final AP poll. Seeded a #3 in the NCAA Tournament, Florida defeated James Madison and Pennsylvania, stunned UConn and rallied against Boston College to capture the East Regional Title. They had, in fact, “ Found A Way” to the final Four… It was A year To Remember!

    From the voice of Fenway Park comes a collection of sixty-four humorous and nostalgic poems celebrating the Boston Red Sox. 
    A commonwealth institution and popular local television personality who is also the announcer, ambassador, and poet laureate for Fenway Park, Dick Flavin has entertained audiences with his incredible poetic talent and abiding love for the Red Sox before countless home games for more than twenty years. Now, this legendary talent's poems are gathered together for the first time in this keepsake volume. 
    As a beloved Red Sox insider, Flavin has been privileged to watch history in the making, from the team's 2005 World Series victory that finally broke its nearly century-long "curse," to road-tripping with Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky, to witnessing Ted Williams final appearance at the plate. His pithy and comedic verses—including such gems as "The Beards of Summer," "Long Live Fenway Park," and his best known, "Teddy at the Bat"—pay homage to the American pastime, New England's favorite team and players (and the curses and legends that have followed it), and the passionate Nation that has remained faithful through victory and defeat. 
    Illustrated with more than fifty photos from the official Red Sox archives, Red Sox Rhymes honors all of Red Sox fandom and is an essential memento for every Bosox fan.A HarperAudio production.
