From the Bears' 73-0 win in 1940 over the Redskins in the most lopsided playoff game in NFL history to Michael Jordan and the Bulls' six NBA championships in the '90s, Chicago's Greatest Sports Memories presents the greatest moments in Chicago sports history. This book features stories and photographs from the archives of the Chicago Sun-Times, plus introductions and original essays by award-winning writer Roland Lazenby. The book contains historical and eyewitness accounts of such feats as Rocky Marciano's knockout of Jersey Joe Walcott in 1953; Walter Payton breaking Jim Brown's rushing record in 1984; and Bobby Hull becoming the first NHL player to exceed 50 goals in a season in 1966.
