Summary

With more than 100.000 members and millions following on social media, Eintracht Frankfurt became one of the biggest football clubs in Europe. But the moody diva, as our fans call her, is different from other clubs—some say that she is more than just a club.

This is the story of a football club that defied the idea of modern football and demonstrated how to win titles without losing tradition. Everyone who loves football saw images of our fans taking over the Camp Nou in Barcelona and the pitch invasion after winning the semifinal against West Ham United. Many asked themselves, "Why does Eintracht Frankfurt have such a massive fan base?"

The goal of this book is not to turn everyone into a supporter of Eintracht Frankfurt; it's the opposite. I want to give hope to every fan of a club that is struggling. I want to inspire kids to support their local team instead of picking one of the top brands. I want to remind every football fan worldwide that this could happen to your club.

The moody diva is for everyone who believes football is more than just a business. Our journey toward winning the Europa League in 2022 started long before our current players signed their contracts. I am talking about the people who saw us play in the second division. I am thinking about those who supported us without expecting to win anything anytime soon. The story of our success can't be told without mentioning the ones who kept the club alive during our darkest days.

Players, coaches, and managers come and go, but at the core of Eintracht Frankfurt, there is something that made all of this possible. It's the only thing that is not subject to change. It's the base of everything that happened in 2022. It's something bigger than the club itself. It's something that money can't buy.

I am talking about the fans of Eintracht Frankfurt: "The Soul of the Diva."

    Go on the road with the best hockey players not in the NHL
     
    What is life really like in North American hockey’s top minor league? As told by dozens of the players, coaches, broadcasters, personnel, and owners who work a grinding schedule every winter, Chasing the Dream goes behind the scenes with seven AHL teams.

    From young prospects to veterans whose own hopes have faded, hear from AHL players on why today’s minor league is no longer like Slap Shot, what playing three games in under 48 hours can do to a player, and why fighting — once a staple of the minors — is on the decline. Learn about the game from coaches, alumni, and broadcasters, as well as AHL president Dave Andrews, who reveals how the AHL is becoming an even more important tool for NHL teams in the salary-cap era.
     
    Load your gear on the bus and take a tour around the many venues, personalities, pranks, and memories of the once-small AHL — an organization that now crosses the continent and is big business for players and owners.

    It was a Thursday at Chicago's Wrigley Field, mostly sunny with the wind blowing out. Nobody expected an afternoon game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs on May 17, 1979, to be much more than a lazy early-season contest matching two teams heading in opposite directions—the first-place Phillies and the Cubs, those lovable losers—until they combined for thirteen runs in the first inning. "The craziest game ever," one player called it. "And then the second inning started." 
    Ten Innings at Wrigley is Kevin Cook's vivid account of a game that could only have happened at this ballpark, in this era, with this colorful cast of heroes and heels: Hall of Famers Mike Schmidt and Bruce Sutter, surly slugger Dave Kingman, hustler Pete Rose, unlucky Bill Buckner, scarred Vietnam vet Garry Maddox, troubled relief pitcher Donnie Moore, clubhouse jester Tug McGraw, and two managers pulling out what was left of their hair. 
    It was the highest-scoring ballgame in a century, and much more than that. Bringing to life the run-up and aftermath of a contest the New York Times called "the wildest in modern history," Cook reveals the human stories behind the game—and how money, muscles and modern statistics were about to change baseball forever.
