Description

Based off the book that made a legend, Paper Lion captures America's sport in detail that's never been matched and now features an introduction by Tom Wolfe.

George Plimpton was perhaps best known for Paper Lion, the book that set the bar for participatory sports journalism. With his characteristic wit, Plimpton recounts his experiences in talking his way into training camp with the Detroit Lions, practicing with the team, and taking snaps behind center. His breezy style captures the pressures and tensions rookies confront, the hijinks that pervade when 60 high-strung guys live together in close quarters, and a host of football rites and rituals.

One of the funniest and most insightful audiobooks ever written on football, Paper Lion is a classic look at the gridiron game.
