Sport in America: Our Defining Stories

Duration :


Summary: Who can forget watching a hobbled Kirk Gibson hitting a home run to win the 1988 World Series? Or when one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott tossed a no-hitter in 1993? Or Brandi Chastain's signature overtime goal in the 1999 World Cup? Comprised of thousands of personal stories from fans who have been part of such transcendent sporting events, this HBO Sports film examines how the universal thread of sport unites us as a people and has become an integral part of American culture. Interviews include: Billy Bob Thornton, Mike Tyson, Steve Kerr, Frank Deford, David Maraniss, Ron Shelton, Curt Menefee, Michele Beadle, Summer Sanders, Jerry Reinsdorf, and many others. (TVPG) ()
