Texas sports writers: the wild and wacky years

Front Cover
Republic of Texas Press, Aug 25, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography - 257 pages
Bob St. John has been writing about Texas and the pro sports scene in Dallas for about 40 years. In the early years of sports reporting, the hijinks and shenanigans of Texas sports reporters were as legendary as the athletes they followed. St. John -- innocent-looking, typical nice guy -- was a leader and instigator of so much mischief that he and his fellow journalists were finally banned from staying in the same hotel as the teams. The book is filled with hilarious stories about every well-known sports writer in the state. Written in Bob's unmistakably witty style, this is a book that every reader of the sports page will love!
