Sinopsis:

None of the books in this genre is remotely comparable to de Laet's remarkable effort. --The Sporting News

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

I remember that my father fell in love with spinning objects when he was six years old. And when I was six years old watching him play, a football fan at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco leaned over and asked if I was going to be a cheerleader when I grew up. "no," I replied, "I am going to write a book about Greek mythology and be buried under a cypress tree." Of course, my parents found this incomprehensible. It never dawned on them or me that I could indeed write a book, until I stood there in Olympia, Greece, remembering the expression of the football fan whose thoughtful pause threw wide open the doors of my life. No mythological heroes? There were the fans in Yankee Stadium. In particular, there were the cab drivers in the Mezzanine section, whose faces read like an epic, and whose enthusiasm was enchantment for me.

As a football player, Y.A. Tittle was not only a master of the moment, he was also the only Hall Of Fame quarterback who never won a championship. As his daughter, was it not possible for me to choose the classical "T" formation rather than the contemporary "shotgun" approach to the sports biography, or celebrity memoir as it has come to be known? And could I not be buried under a cypress tree just as easily after writing a book about what it was like growing up in the land of football players?
