Usually Ships in 2-3 Days
There is no denying that San Diego sports fans have had incredible experiences over the years watching amazing games, implausible plays, fantastic seasons, unbelievable feats, and awesome players. But as great as the high is while it is going, the crash is inevitable, for doom is always looming. As good as the times are San Diego sports fans know that they are only one pitch, one play, or one call away from utter despair, dismay, and defeat. This is the life of a San Diego sports fan, an emotional roller coaster that is perfectly captured in The Curse of The Murph. In a witty and humorous fashion, The Curse of The Murph masterfully weaves personal stories about the author's life as a San Diego sports fan with a detailed look at the great (and not so great) moments in the history of San Diego sports. Through the retelling of fifty of the most cursed sports moments in San Diego's history, The Curse of the Murph uncovers the hidden curse behind San Diego's lack of a major championship. There is no denying, as this book shows, that San Diego's sports curse is completely rooted in one single heap of concrete... Jack Murphy Stadium... aka The Murph.
