Author Discussion & Signing with Dave Revsine. Nationally Know Sports Broadcaster
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Wednesday, September 10 at 7pm
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore is hosting a book discussion & signing for nationally know ESPN Sports Announcer, Dave Revsine for his book, The Opening Kickoff: The Tumultuous Birth of a Football Nation.

It's America's most popular sport, played by thousands, watched by millions, and generating billions in revenues every year. It's also America's most controversial sport, haunted by the specter of life-threatening injuries and plagued by scandal, even among its most venerable personalities and institutions. At the college level, we often tie football's tales of corruption and greed to its current popularity and revenue potential, and we have vague notions of a halcyon time--before the new College Football Playoff, power conferences, and huge TV contracts. Perhaps we conjure images of young Ivy Leaguers playing a gentleman's game, exemplifying the collegial in collegiate. What we don't imagine is a game described in 1905, not today, as "a social obsession--this boy-killing, man-mutillating, education-prostituting, gladiatorial sport."

In "The Opening Kickoff," Dave Revsine tells the riveting story of the formative period of American football (1890-1915). It was a time that saw the game's meteoric rise, fueled by overflow crowds, breathless newspaper coverage and newfound superstars--including one of the most thrilling and mysterious the sport has ever seen. But it was also a period racked by controversy in academics, recruiting, and physical brutality that, in combination, threatened football's very existence. A vivid storyteller, Revsine brings it all to life in a captivating narrative.

Over lunch I read "Author's Note", "Preface" and started "Football Day..." I'm enjoying The Opening Kickoff... I like the writing style and looking forward the finding out more. I know people who are interested in both sports and history who would love reading about the "Exposing this sports history to the open air!" It's like sports' gossip, but it's true. This is, especially, valid when the reader considers the comments on Harvard and Yale so far, not to mention, the University of Chicago, Northwestern and Notre Dame teams' football heritage".
