Pro Football Heroes of Today
Believe it or not this book is still in circulation! All they need to do is just change the title to Pro Football Heroes of Yesterday. I remember these guys from when my dad talked football to my clueless pre-teen self.
I picked a handful of notable entries. You youngsters out there will recognize OJ Simpson. Yes, he was a football hero before he had some troubles. (As an aside, I had former co-worker who never knew that OJ had a football career. All of the more senior members of staff had a collective aging crisis.) The other hangup is that this book is dirty (and not in a good way) and is stained on way too many pages. I will give the book props for having a good binding. This book probably should have been retired by the late 1970s.
