Nicknamed the "greed" decade, the 1980s served as a backdrop for the beginning of the end of the cold war, the boon of spaceflight, and over-the-top pop culture. During this time, the U.S. men's hockey team triumphed over the heavily favored Soviet Union team to win gold at the 1980 Olympic Games, the first American won the Tour de France, and Bo Jackson made history by simultaneously playing baseball and football at the pro level. 1980–1989, Second Edition showcases these standout moments in sports, with vivid photographs, handy reference features, and colorful narration.
