It has long been thought that there was a connection between athletics and success in later life. But nowhere is that connection brought home more dramatically than in this book. Presented are 100 people who were once notable athletes, and who went on to lead even more notable lives in fields as diveTo haverse as entertainment, politics, the military, and the arts. Everyone knows that Dwight David Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States; but did you know that he once tacked the legendary Jim Thorpe in a football game? Millions of people have laughed at the antics of the comedy team of Abbot and Costello; but did you know that the roly-poly Lou Costello was once a professional boxer? How about the famous General George S. Patton? Did you know he was in the 1912 Olympics? Or that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, was once a wrestling champion? Or that Robert Stack, before he became a famous actor, was a national champion competitive skeet shooter, with two world records to his name. Athletes Once is a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous-before they became either.
