Description: Jimmy the Greek became a household name in 1976 when he merged oddsmaking & sports into a unique role on CBS's NFL TODAY show. For twelve years he rattled off predictions for upcoming games & titillated fans with sports gossip. Burly & unpolished, the high-school drop-out created an excitement & spontaneity unfamiliar to previous pregame-show formats. Always a controversial figure, he made headlines in 1980 when he slugged Brent Musburger in a Manhattan bar, but he astonished the entire nation in 1988 when in an unplanned interview he stated why he believed African-Americans are better athletes. Unjustly labeled a racist, the seventy-year-old Snyder was fired from CBS. He retreated into a world of solitude. The mystery behind the Greek's banishment from the public eye baffled his supporters until now. With the publication of FAREWELL JIMMY THE GREEK, the story is finally told.
