A good summer read for Eagles fans…

Looking for a good book about the Eagles to take to the beach? Every summer we try to find at least one good football read to get us in the mood for Training Camp and the impending season.

Here’s one I’m going to sink into this week:

Although the title is a tad morbid, this looks like a winner to me.
Written by Chuck Carlson, the release date was September of 2011. It’s 256 pages and it’s got stuff to make me say “I did not know that”…

You can get the paperback version for about $6 at Amazon.com, and the Kindle version for about $10…

With pep talks, records, and Eagles lore, this lively, detailed book explores the personalities, events, and facts every Philadelphia fan should know. It contains crucial information such as important dates, player nicknames, memorable moments, and outstanding achievements by singular players. This guide to all things Eagles covers the team’s improbable run to Super Bowl XV, the Hoagiegate fiasco, the 1943 team merge, and how to tailgate Philly-style.

If I get all the way through this book before August, I’m going to finally dive into the following must-reads…and maybe the Eagles DVD, too:

  Philadelphia Eagles: The Complete Illustrated History Les Bowen Hardcover$24.71
  Tales from the Philadelphia Eagles Sideline Gordon Forbes Hardcover$16.16
  E-A-G-L-E-S The Movie Paul Doyle Jr. 4.4 out of 5 stars DVD$3.69

Enjoy your summer reading season while you can. We’ve got work to do soon enough. So take a break. And a reminder to all: Brizer’s poolside patio has a reading section which is open to all, but please—don’t feed the dog! L.J. is on a strict diet …as we all should be.
