The return of one of the great sports books of all time
How can you keep the thrill of pro football alive after the Super Bowl ends? Read the new edition of Instant Reply: The Green Bay Diary of Jerry Kramer (Doubleday, 2006), by Jerry Kramer with Dick Schaap, with a foreword by Jonathan Yardley. This unsurpassed account of the Packers’ 1967 season takes you inside the locker-room and onto the playing field with Coach Vince Lombardi and such titans of the sport as Bart Starr and Ray Nitschke. Kramer gives his take on the book at www.jerrykramer.com, his Web site. A great Valentine’s Day gift for a football fan, this modern classic proves that Frank Gifford was wrong when he said — we may hope, in jest — that “there’s no place in sports for intelligence.”
