Slow Getting Up
That's the title of the new book that I'll be giving away tomorrow morning, Saturday, at 7:30 on Puffman Sports Trivia. Nate Jackson who spent 6 years as a Tight End for the Denver Broncos is out of the huddle with his new hardcover book, "Slow Getting Up; A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile" & it's set for NATIONWIDE release next Tuesday, September 17th. At the start of each season there are just 1,696 men in the world deemed talented enough to play in the NFL, the most popular sports league in American. & of that tiny number, only a handful are household names. Most players, like Nate Jackson fall somewhere in the middle, fighting their way onto a roster every year, putting their bodies & minds through hell. "Slow Getting Up: A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile" is the story of Jackson's love/hate relationship with his job as a professional athlete. Jackson pines, "I'm sick of being treated for injuries, sick of spending time in the training room, sick of feeling fragile. It is my 6th year in the league. I'm well versed in the injury/rehab cycle of professional football. I know which injuries I need to treat & which ones I can handle on my own. This one I can handle. AS LONG AS I CAN RUN FAST I'm FINE"! Booklist BLASTS "Don't miss this one; it could very well be the best book about pro football you will ever read." Check out Nate Jackson's "Slow Getting Up" at: harpercollins.com & then tune in to WIN the book tomorrow morning at 7:30 on Puffman Sports Trivia...I'll be throwing out a trivia question on another one of those NFL franchises tomorrow morning.
