bookshelves: nonfiction
Recommended for: college football apologists
Read in January, 2007

I expected the football version of Moneyball. For 20 pages, the book did what that one did. It explained how a little-appreciated position came to become extremely important to football teams. However, then it turns sentimental and tells a rags to riches story of a poor kid in Memphis. It anoints his adopted parents while demonizing the NCAA. The problem is, the author is friends with the parents who sure seem guilty in the whole mess. If you read it, bring an open mind because what you're digesting is awfully biased.
