Have you ever felt that your presence at a sporting event influenced the result? Are you certain your team could not possibly succeed without you at the game? Do you believe your adherence to a precise routine on game day, whether at the stadium or in your own home, is the key to winning or losing? And if you don't hold to these rituals exactly, do you believe in your heart that your team is doomed?
If you are a sports fan, you know about superstitions, curses, and hexes. The sporting world is littered with these legends. Some, like the Curse of the Bambino, the Curse of the Billy Goat, or being on the cover of Sports Illustrated, are well known and documented. More recently, there has been a rising swell of evidence supporting the Madden Curse.
But there are other stories similar to these that have never been told. This is one of those stories. It is the story of a boy named Mark O'Bern.

Terrific story complimented by a great voice.

Entertaining Listen and a Great Story!
I first read the Coach's Son and I enjoyed it so much that I also wanted to listen to it. What a treat! Mr. Hickey has an engaging style that drew me into the story so that I enjoyed it even more than when I read it. The Coach's Son tell's the story of a young boy whose Dad is a football coach. I am not a great sports fan, but I found young Mark's coming of age both amusing and engrossing. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good listen told by a master storyteller.
Mark was my favorite character. I enjoyed "watching" him grow up, and listening to his thoughts, especially about religion.
Mr. Hickey has a rich voice. He draws the listener into the story without overpowering it.
Al Almighty makes a couple of short but important appearances in Coach's Son. He is a colorful character and Mr. Hickey drew him memorably in my mind.
Great book! I think it has something for just about anyone.
