    FOO BAH FOO BAH 24 7, 365 Days a Year Seriously, doesn t it seem like football is happening year round these days The NFL with the help of ESPN has done a hell of a job making themselves ubiquitous Lucky for me, I love the game Sucks for those who don t, though The Blind Side is a nice, concise slice of today s true American Pastime, and it s the sort of feel good story that will appeal to a broad audience and by

    On the merits of the story alone, I enjoyed this book Lewis is a very good writer, and he is able to tell a compelling story and educate the less knowledgeable without coming off as condescending, which isdifficult than it sounds The story of Michael Oher is compelling and ongoing , and it s hard not to root for him.That said, I have my suspicions about the altruism at the heart of the story There are too many questionable motiv

    9 25 09 As a book club read, this was different And as football is not my favorite sport I don t dislike it, but for me it ranks below baseball basketball , I wasn t sure how I was going to like it, but I went in with an open mind It basically alternates between chapters about football player Michael Oher s history the emerging importance of the position of left tackle in the NFL and in college football Overall, a very educational story for me For someone who doesn t necessarily con
