Summary

From the fall of 2007 through the spring of 2008, Boston sports fans enjoyed a run of good fortune that was unprecedented in sports history. The Red Sox won their second World Series championship in four years. The Celtics, with their newly assembled big three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen, won their first NBA championship since 1986. And the Patriots, already hailed as the first sports dynasty of the twenty-first century, roared through an undefeated regular season before being derailed by the New York Giants in a shocking upset in Super Bowl XLII.Wicked Good Year tells the remarkable story of the dizzying, glorious seven months and twenty days when three teams established Boston as the capital of the sports world. Acclaimed sports columnist Steve Buckley provides an astonishing look at that unforgettable season through the eyes of the players, coaches, team personnel, and fans, and explores how their lives created a fascinating backdrop to the action taking place on the field and the court.
