Bull in the Ring

Bull in the Ring

Books

Bull in the Ring is a unique amalgam?part medicine, part military?part football. The story centers on a very small fraction of a busy surgeon?s career. Dr. Mike McCarthy is coerced into coaching the Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital football team, while also running a large department, treating countless patients and trying to raise five small children. There?s plenty of conflict, a few tears and lots of laughs.The reader is drawn into the operating room, into the huddle and into the fray. ?Coach Mac?, a former collegiate linebacker, is driven to turn his band of medical misfits into winners?no easy task since the hapless Navy team hasn?t won a game in three years and is widely considered to be a bunch of bona fide losers. The arch enemies, the rest of the Marine teams in the base league, aren?t McCarthy?s only problems. There?s an endless stream of real patients demanding his attention. As a practicing urologist, he sees some ?beauties?. There are sexpots, perverts, war heroes and scared little kids. There is even one young Marine who manages to do his own circumcision, with his trusty straight razor! These patients and their stories, provide the framework upon which Bull in the Ring is hung.Dr. McCarthy confronts it all: infection, death, bureaucracy and of course his biggest nemesis, the invincible Marines. Along the way, the human spirit is exposed with surgical precision that?s the allure of this compelling true story.Will the Navy ever win a game? Does winning even matter? The reader is challenged to answer these questions and others posed by the real life characters who animate the pages of Bull in the Ring.
