"The View from the Cheap Seats" is a collection of funny, unusual, idiosyncratic stories going back decades, that feature some of the most famous people in every day life. Over the years, I discovered that while telling these obscure, entertaining, yet true stories, people would often say, "I had no idea that happened!" "You should write a book!' Well, here you go! Although you've most likely never heard these stories, once you have, you'll never forget them!


The stories in this book, "The View from the Cheap Seats," have been accumulated since long before I was a credentialed media member. But on June 17, 1994, my life changed, which gave me total access where the average fan never gets to go. It opened up a world of information I never had before. So, as my guest, you get to join me and take a peek into the world of sports stories, you never knew existed!
