Over Time: My Life as a Sportswriter is as unconventional and wide-ranging as Frank Deford’s remarkable career, in which he has chronicled the heroes and the characters of just about every sport in nearly every medium. Deford joined Sports Illustrated in 1962, fresh, and fresh out of Princeton. In 1990, he was Editor-in-Chief of The National Sports Daily, one of the most ambitious—and ill-fated—projects in the history of American print journalism. But then, he’s endured: writing ten novels, winning an Emmy (not to mention being a fabled Lite Beer All-Star), and last week he read something like his fourteen-hundredth commentary on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” From the Mad Men-like days of SI in the ‘60s, and the “bush” years of the early NBA, to Deford’s visit to apartheid South Africa with Arthur Ashe, and his friend’s brave and tragic death, Over Time is packed with intriguing people and stories. Interwoven through his personal history, Deford lovingly traces the entire arc of American sportswriting from the lurid early days of the Police Gazette, through Grantland Rice and Red Smith and on up to ESPN. This is a wonderful, inspired book—equal parts funny and touching—a treasure for sports fans. Just like Frank Deford. Praise for Over Time “Equal doses of self-deprecating humor and anecdotal history of American sports journalism are the essence of Frank Deford's entertaining new memoir.”—Chicago Tribune “Deford is the Holy Grail. He's simply one of the greatest sportswriters of all time. ... [Over Time] has a little bit of everything -- great stories about interviewing everyone from Richard Nixon … to Jerry Jones. … Deford played with the Harlem Globetrotters, introduced the world to Bill Bradley, really disliked Rodney Dangerfield, edited the only national sports daily in our history (The National), and has great takes on the history and characters of Sports Illustrated in its formative years. . . . Deford's the best.”—Peter King, SI.com “He sketches insightful remembrances of stars like Wilt Chamberlain and Billie Jean King and lavishes affection and admiration on Sports Illustrated colleagues Andre Laguerre, Dan Jenkins, and the ‘tortured’ writer Mark Kram … [Deford is] sports writing's Sinatra.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Endearing... Over Time imparts a sense of a life well lived and fully enjoyed.”—New York Times "The mixture of homage to sportswriters who came before him, such as Grantland Rice; sometimes wistful vignettes of sports figures like Arthur Ashe; and his own personal reflections on the evolution of sports journalism combine to offer a cultural perspective that transcends a mere job." —Publishers Weekly (Top 10 in Sports) "Deford's cred is incredible, his accolades deserved... He does not pull a punch when it comes to boxing or even to the tastes-great, less-filling Miller Lite commercials he once made... [Deford] has long been the genuine article." —Los Angeles Times “A cool ride through Deford’s career.”— Minneapolis Star-Tribune “Frank Deford is the best there is. His memoir Over Time is beautiful, funny, poignant and poetic.” —Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights and Father's Day “A wonderful book. Over Time is both a treasure and a treasury.”—Sally Jenkins, Washington Post columnist and New York Times bestselling author of It’s Not About the Bike “Frank Deford is the best sportswriter I’ve ever read. If there’s a Mount Rushmore of sportswriting, Deford is up there, purple ties and all.”—Tony Kornheiser

Time pervades every aspect of people's lives. We are all affected by remnants of our pasts, assessments of our presents, and forecasts of our futures. Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors over time inexorably intertwine and intermingle, determining varied reactions such as affect and emotions, as well as future behaviors. The purpose of this volume is to bring together the diverse theory and research of an outstanding group of scholars whose work relates to peoples judgements over time. To date, much theory and research on temporal variables within psychology has remained somewhat fragmented, isolated, and even provincial--researchers in particular domains are either unaware of or are paying little attention to each other's work. Integrating the theory and research into a single volume will bring about a greater awareness and appreciation of conceptual relations between seemingly disparate topics, define and promote the state of scientific knowledge in these areas, and set the agenda for future work. The volume presents the two main ways of looking at judgments over time: looking at how people's thoughts about the future and the past affect their present states, and looking at the interplay over time among people's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

"Twin towers." Laos escapees. Farm kids. Coaches' sons. They came together at a little Indiana high school for the 1989-90 basketball season under a charismatic coach and almost pulled off the most coveted honor in Indiana sports: the state championship. Led by 6-10 and 6-9 twins, the team from rural Northfield High School was a group of smart, tightly-knit young men. They may not have been unique, but they possessed a sense of self and unity that shielded them during tough times. Coach Steve McClure and his assistants taught the fundamentals of basketball, the keys to winning, and that the court was like a foxhole in the quest for athletic acclaim. Ray Moscowitz told their story in his thrilling 1990 book, Small School, Giant Dream: A Year of Hoosier High School Hoopla. In this book he weaves together excerpts from Small School, Giant Dream: A Year of Hoosier High School Hoopla to provide context for a peek into how the lives of the players, managers and coaches have unfolded since that still-talked-about season twenty years ago. Overtime: Small School, Giant Dream 20 Years Later is not just about basketball, but about life. The players, coaches and managers were, on the surface, ordinary. But as a whole, they were driven to succeed by the special inner drive that propels people to accomplish lofty goals. There have always been teams that have captured the attention of not just a city, region, and state, but a nation. So Northfield wasn't that special in that regard. But Northfield proved again that the ordinary can sometimes be extraordinary. Twenty years later McClure is a cancer survivor and his players and managers have gone on to careers in business, finance, medicine, education, sales, industrial management, computer technology, and agricultural equipment supply/trucking. Here are their stories.
