Why would a successful college basketball coach walk away from a lucrative job in America's most glamorous sport? The burned out Rus Bradburd, enamoured with Ireland and its music, took a job coaching in the lowly Irish Super League, but was unprepared for what he found. Perplexed by the small town Tralee's Frosties Tigers - a cast of misfits and underachievers more concerned with their day jobs, Gaelic Football, and Guinness - he turned to traditional Irish music for wisdom and solace.
Rus Bradburd was an assistant basketball coach at University of Texas, El Paso, and New Mexico State University for fourteen seasons. This is his first book.
