In this beautifully written, reflective, and sometimes humorous book, Jim Huber, host of CNN's The Sporting Life, tells of his precious final months with his father. His recollections of those last days include moments that brought him to tears-both from crying and laughing-as he discovered what matters most in life. Along the way, he recalls the stories of athletes who have faced overwhelming odds or triumphed over personal tragedies-offering spiritual insight into the lives and deaths of such noted sports figures as Payne Stewart and Walter Payton.
