    Default Any Readers Amomg Us?

    I have an Amazon kindle on my computer and I've been downloading books. I read Dan Rooney's book My 75 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the N.F.L I liked it very much,especially the part about the behind the scenes of the merger. I just got another, 100 Things Steeler Fans Should Know and do Before They Die. Anyone read these?

    Yep I have read Dan Rooney's book. Did you like the part where it says..someone had Al Davis outside in the hall and was giving him a hard time? Is that the same book 75th anniversary I think I read it 1.5 yrs ago or so when it first came out. I've read i'm quite sure every book written about the steelers during that 1970's era and forward.

    Jim Wexell "steeler nation" is a good one. I'd like to read Jaworski's the games that changed the games as well. I have also heard "the blind side" not the movie but the book is a good one about steve wallace LT for the 49er's who protected montana a lot during his career.

    Yup that's the one. It was Vince Lombardi who had a hold of Al Davis.

    I've also read Dan's book... "Steeler Nation" by Wexell is good, as was his book "Tales From Behind The Steel Curtain: The Best Stories Of The '79 Steelers"... "The Pittsburgh Steelers: The Official Team History" by Abby Mendelson, and "From Black To Gold" by Tim Gleason (a blogger over at BTSC) were also good reads... Tony Dungy's books were alright, and I really enjoyed Dick Enberg's book "Oh My!".

    ... I'm currently reading "The Ones Who Hit The Hardest: The Steelers, The Cowboys, The '70s, And The Fight For America's Soul" by Chad Millman and Shawn Coyne. It's a great read...

    if you like the NFL in general "nfl total access" or something like that by RIch Eisen is pretty funny. Marshall falk plays a lot of tricks on his coworkers at the pro bowl every year.
