A Real Character Comes to Life Oct 28, 2006
Johnny Blood McNally is one of those legendary sports heroes whose story and public image is larger than life, but this carefully researched and well written book presents the background, the context, and the complexity of character that gives a full picture of a real human being. Not only does the reader learn about McNally, but one also gets a sense of the values and social environment that gave such characters a place on the stage of public life. Anyone with an interest in the history of football, or who would like a window into the generation that came of age after World War I and were the sports heros during the depression will enjoy this book. And if you're a fan of the Green Bay Packers - a must read.
