Miss Tight End Days? All links right here...
The hope is for "The Blood and Guts: How Tight Ends Save Football" to serve as your official football bible. Q&As and book excerpts and local hangout information all inside.
Good morning, friends.
Hey, Travis Kelce and George Kittle reminded the country on back-to-back nights why the NFL tight end is so insanely important. Both players took the game over. It’s clear the red-blooded, badass American Tight End is in fantastic hands. Mike Ditka and John Mackey are proud.
As you read “The Blood and Guts,” you’ll understand why everything we love about the sport lives and breathes at this position. A position that also tells us so, so much about the human condition. Thanks to all who’ve read my book since it’s Oct. 18 release. So many hours, so many miles went into this project — your support means the world. All can purchase “The Blood and Guts: How Tight Ends Save Football” wherever books are sold. A few links here:
