Deadlines and Overtimes is a retrospective of 33 years of memorable reflections from the Philadelphia Inquirer's voice of Philly sports, Bill Lyon. With columns that cover as many sporting events as Lyon did-including seven Olympics, more than two dozen Super Bowls, 11 NBA Finals, 17 U.S. Opens and dozens of fights, bowls, baseball playoffs and Final Fours-Deadlines and Overtimes is a look back...and through lasting insights, a look forward...at local, regional, national and worldwide sports.
