Very interesting perspective on Frank Gifford's life. If you've grown up watching Gifford and MNF, and the whole Kathie Lee saga, you get a pretty good idea of what his thoughts are.

But, most interesting and funny were all the times Frank had with Dandy Don Meredith. Just a riot. Beyond that, some funny and distrubing thoughts of the downfall of Howard Cosell.

A good account of behind the scenes in football journalism from one of the best football players ever....
