For 25 years, Chicago sports fans invited Terry Boers into their homes, cars, and offices as one of the premier voices of the city's first sports radio station, WSCR. Listeners from all walks of life embraced Boers' offbeat sense of humor and brutal honesty, and the one-time Sun Times columnist became on of the Windy City's most recognizable voices by the time of his retirement. In this highly anticipated memoir, the often guarded Boers delivers a treasure trove of lively anecdotes and personal reflections from his life and career. From racing down drag strips in Chicago's south suburbs to breathing rare air covering a young Michael Jordan. From raucous banter with Mike Ditka during The Score's early days to years spent alongside Dan Bernstein before signing off in 2017. Boers opens up about his own battle with cancer in 2016, which required multiple surgeries. A must-read to the thousands of listeners who welcomed Boers into their lives every day, The Score of a Lifetime is a freewheeling, frank portrait of a man, a career, and pioneering radio station
