In a career that has spanned over thirty five years, Ray Didinger has seen and written about every sport, team, and athlete that has made a mark in American and the world. In this collection of profiles, articles, and columns from his days in the "Bulletin", the "Daily News" and through his current life on television and film, Ray Didinger takes his readers to the major moments and events that have measure the life of sports in Philadelphia, this country, and the world. From Didinger's earliest days covering the Eagles, to the highs when Philadelphia was a city of champions (and the lows in between), "One Last Read" is an absorbing journey through the education of a writer and the love this city has always had with sports. Included in this collection are profiles of athletes, essays on professional wrestling, opinion pieces on the Phillies, the Sixers, the Flyers, and of course the Eagles. Didinger's introduction gives the reader the story of his professional life, how he became a beat writer, a columnist, and eventually a producer for NFL Films. "One Last Read" is a treasure trove of stories for every fan of Philadelphia sports, and a snapshot of a city that lives and dies by its teams. More than anything, it is also a representation of some of the most brilliant writing from one of the finest sportswriters Philadelphia has every produced. If you lived through the moments Didinger describes in his essays, you will relive them with intensity; if you are too young to remember, Didinger will take you through the triumphs, follies, and tragedies of Philadelphia and American sports with the mastery of a great storyteller.
