(p. xi) Acknowledgments
In all facets of life, but especially sports, nothing is accomplished without collaboration and teamwork. This has proven unquestionably true with The Oxford Handbook of American Sports Law.
To that end, I would like to acknowledge the sizable contributions of several key individuals.
First, I thank Nicholas Danforth, a student of mine at the University of New Hampshire School of Law. Nicholas was with me on Day 1 and provided terrific editorial assistance throughout.
I also thank the wonderful OUP staff, including Timothy Allen, Haley Anderson, Alyssa Callan, Robyn Curtis, Tithi Jana, Meredith Keller, David Pervin, and Shereen Shafi. I could not have worked with a kinder and more thoughtful group of persons.
I am also incredibly grateful to my wife, Kara McCann, for her love and support—and sublime proof reading skills.
Last, but not least, I am indebted to my parents, Dr. and Mrs. William P. McCann, for their unending encouragement and inspiration.
I hope you enjoy the Handbook as much as I do.
