Sportsmanship is the most ambitious book in Patrick McCaskey’s popular Sports and Faith Series. First, readers are treated to a Chicago Bears Calendar of historical events that celebrate Bears’ history for each day of the year. Next, chapters feature interesting stories, sports segments, personal reminiscences, faith experiences, and the author’s humorous musings. Reflecting the practice of classic sports journalist memoirs, McCaskey has frequently written about his favorite athletes and coaches. In Sportsmanship, the author adds a new twist to this practice by including a chapter on favorite writers who have inspired him.  Towards the end of the volume are McCaskey’s speeches that have been used at social and civil events, presentations to churches and schools, and all types of occasions relating to his passion, the Chicago Bears. $20 ISBN: 978-0-9819342-4-2 (Pub. 2/2020)
