Synopsis

Synopsis

Any number of writers could spend an entire season with an NFL team, from the first day of training camp until the last pick of the draft, and come up with an interesting book. But only Roy Blount Jr. could capture the pain, the joy, the fears, the humor—in short, the heart—of a championship team.

In 1973, the Pittsburgh Steelers were super, but missed the bowl. Blount’s portrait of a team poised to dominate the NFL for more than a decade recounts the gridiron accomplishments and off-the-field lives of players, coaches, wives, fans, and owners.

About Roy Blount Jr.

Roy Blount Jr. - About Three Bricks Shy...And the Load Filled Up
If there is one thing that Roy Blount Jr. prides himself on, his modesty aside, it is this: that he has
done more different things than any other humorist-novelist-journalist-dramatist-lyricist-lecturer
-reviewer-performer-versifier-cruciverbalist-sportswriter-anthologist-columnist-screenwriter-philologist of sorts he can think of. A single grandfather, he hails from Georgia and lives in Manhattan and western Massachusetts. Right after finishing this book, he turned fifty-six. His preference would have been to turn fifty-four, at most, but you
can't go back except in a memoir.
