Why does a defensive end look like a Hall of Famer one week and a candidate for the practice squad the next? These questions and more are addressed in Take Your Eye Off the Ball 2.0, a book that takes readers deep inside the perpetual chess match between offense and defense. This book provides clear and simple explanations to the intricacies and nuances that affect the outcomes of every NFL game. This updated edition contains recent innovations from the 2015 NFL season.

An idiom is an expression (i.e., term or phrase) whose meaning cannot be deduced from the literal definitions and the arrangement of its parts, but refers instead to a figurative meaning that is known only through common use. Idioms are, in essence, often colloquial metaphors ó terms which require some foundational knowledge, information, or experience when used. Using idioms in our writing is a fun way to add humour and tell the story in a different way. Idioms also help us with the second trait of writing Word Choice. This book is a comprehensive collection of most expressive Idioms & Phrases.

Never in baseball history had a last place team rebounded to take the pennant the following season. Yet in 1991, lightning struck twice as the Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves, a pair of cellar dwellers the year before, faced each other in an unforgettable World Series. For both clubs, the turnaround was one for the ages. Minnesota and Atlanta rallied throughout the 1991 season around a crop of rising stars—Kirby Puckett, Kent Hrbek, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz—who each spirited their team's unlikely run all the way to the World Series. And what a Fall Classic it proved to be, with five of the seven games decided by a single run, four decided on the final pitch, and three—including game seven—ending in extra innings. When the final out was recorded, the cover headline in Baseball Weekly read: “Best World Series Ever.” In Down to the Last Pitch, Tim Wendel delivers all the hopes, dreams, and drama in a season—and a Series—touched by magic.
