I think Mr. Quick over did it just a little on the football side. That kind of drove me nuts with all the Hank Baskett and AAAAAAHHHHH Eagles. I don't know how the chant goes thank goodness. Even though I read that chant I refused to let my mind picture them doing it. I thought about humming and skipping 10 lines every time I saw Eagles. As you can tell I'm not an Eagles fan. The story is gripping pulls you in even if you don't like the Eagles it might get a little annoying but you got to look for the silver lining. I liked how Pat view his life as a movie and most of the book take place during his apart time. He's working on bettering himself so he could have his silver lining. I think that is what kept me reading I wanted to see if Pat got his silver lining. Overall very enjoyable read.
