Alright but a bit vague
This book was interesting, but I had some trouble following the stories as they were less familiar to a non-US resident like myself. I love Football but it’s not a popular sport where I live, so when I was reading I expect to have some things explained so I too could understand. Some words and phrases were a bit vague for me, so I had a bit of a hard time following the stories and anecdotes.
I did enjoy it, and the other book by the same author and narrator about Baseball, which was better in my opinion.
Scott Miller is a great narrator and was a big part of why I liked it so much.
