The name of the book says it all. Then, the make it or break it training camp started in July. Today, training camps don't even start until August. Bill Curry details one more training camp in the mid-70s as his distinguished football career was coming to an end. At 230lbs, Curry would be an undersized strong safety in 2009, but in the 60s and early 70s he was an all-star center on championship teams. Articulate and interesting, Curry gives hints why he became such a good coach and commentator after he retired. And, of course, having George Plimpton as your writing sidekick never hurts.

Bill Curry, 60-70s NFL star and veteran, spends a few days in the car with one of sports' great storytellers, George Plimpton. The combination is grand and the stories are funny and insightful. They are on their way to Curry's return to Green Bay after several years with other teams. As a snapshot of the personalities of the 60-70's NFL this is the best. Very highly recommended.

If you're into football, like entertainment stories (fact), this is a must read. I read this book back in the early 1990's & it is just the best. i still have my copy & reread it once a year. Still makes me chuckle. I am now ordering a few more copies, for my football friends. It's a cross country (in a car) interview with Bill Curry (Center for Green Bay) & George Plimpton. Includes an interlude with Sandy Kofax, among other game athletic stars. (Interesting & funny read!) This is at least one of my all time favorite books, if not my favorite!! Do not miss, if you love football.
