Based on a true story, we follow author, Christopher Jaymes, as he exchanges his would-be vacation in for a six-week stint as an aid worker in one of the world's most tragic disasters. Upon his arrival in Bangkok, he was informed that a tsunami had devastated the west coast of Thailand and that the only hotel still standing was the hotel holding his reservation. A demystifying and satirical, yet astonishingly human commentary at the gut-wrenching realities occuring at a time where selflessness should flourish, but selfishness prevails. Jaymes leads us through an adventure of mental anguish while drug-infested degenerates and hallucinatory aid workers pull together in hopes to fulfill their dream of serving humanity. At the core of the madness, Jaymes examines the fine art of deflecting ego chatter and the innate fear of the unknown that most of us harbor in the depths of our souls.

Sports events represent, for many, landmarks for memories, contexts that securely fix moments in past time. And in America, perhaps more than in any other country, they are part of what connects the individual to the multitude. When we add them to our remembrances, they subtly suggest that, like sporting contests, our personal tales are fit for public consumption. How easy and natural it is to add a little referential sidebar to the stories we tell: "I started work in January, I remember because the Bills had just lost the Super Bowl--the fourth one." On a broader scale, sports have left their imprint on the stony history of the nation. Beginning slowly with a game of bowls (1611), something like miniature golf in New England (1652), horse racing on Long Island, and billiards in Charlestown (1722), the sporting life then gained momentum--and a firmer grip on the national conscience--with the early play of baseball, basketball, and football, games that would come to dominate the sports scene in 20th century America. Organized by day of the year, this volume provides the browser, the trivia buff and the sports historian a record of thousands of frames, matches, series, and championships. Whether it's the day a bases-loaded walk gave the National League its 16th All-Star victory in 17 seasons (July 17, 1979) or the day Harvard defeated Yale and Brown in the first-ever intercollegiate regatta (July 26, 1859), there's something new buried within the tome's 365 layers for even the most knowledgeable fans.
