Cowboy standouts share singular memories of life on "America’s Team".
ESPN.com columnist and former Dallas Morning News sports reporter and columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor brings fans the most spectacular remembrances of 20 football greats. David DeBoy provides the very fan-friendly readings as Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, Troy Aikman, Drew Pearson, Randy White, Emmitt Smith, and others recount what it is like to be a member of the Cowboy fraternity, what was going on inside the locker room, and what ran through their minds during some of the most uplifting times in American sport history.
Game of My Life: Dallas Cowboys takes you inside the most memorable game of 24 players and of head Coach Jimmy Johnson that earned each of them a place in the history and lore of America’s Team. Each chapter provides colorful detail on the player’s favorite game and its significance to the history of one of the world’s most recognized franchises.
Learn how these men joined the Cowboys fraternity. Recount with them the mood of the team and of each player leading up to his memorable moment and his thoughts on the game - told in his own words - as well as how his career fared and what he is doing today. Listen to Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett describe how he almost missed the game in which he turned in the most prolific performance of his career; and learn how Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher, learned to play with pain and how that helped him lead Dallas to a division-clinching win over the New York Giants despite a dislocated shoulder. Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach talks about his frustration with Coach Tom Landry shuffling him in and out of the lineup, and Hall of Fame defensive tackle Randy White remembers the transition from college to the NFL.
Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman relives his most emotional moment on the football field, and receiver Drew Pearson talks about the infamous Hail Mary. Receiver Tony Hill relives a thrilling 31-30 comeback win over the rival Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. Safety James Washington talks about his heroic performance in Super Bowl XXVIII, and little-known running back Paul Palmer discusses his role in Coach Jimmy Johnson’s first NFL victory. Other story standouts include those of cornerback Deion Sanders, Ring of Honor linebacker Chuck Howley, Super Bowl XXX MVP Larry Brown, Ring of Honor running back Don Perkins, Hall of Fame defensive tackle Bob Lilly, and special teams star Bill Bates, among others.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not, It isn't that much about the games that they remember but more about leading you up to the game and about the player than what the player thinks about the game
