As I read this autobiography of Drew Breese's road to winning a Super Bowl for the city of New Orleans, I was frequently reminded of David Foster Wallace's essay on Tracy Austin's autobiography.

The trouble with this genre is that as much as we want to get to know great athletes, and are inspired by their on-the-field exploits, their stories rarely translate as well to the written page as a good bit of fiction.

If you're a hard-core Saints fan, you'll love this book. Otherwise, I'd suggest you pass.
