As the go-to guy in Las Vegas, Jack Molloy thought he knew it all, but that was before he inherited half of the New York Hawks and found out that, next to the denizens of the country of Football, he was just a babe in the woods. Over the course of a single season, Molloy will get a crash course in steroids, gambling, crooked quarterbacks, idiot sportswriters, control-freak coaches, and philandering announcers. He will end up with his brother and sister co-owners-"the demon-seed twins"-along with his coach, the commissioner, and most of his fellow owners, out to get him. He will discover just how far every mogul in America who doesn't have his own football team will go to get one. And he just might wind up falling in love with Kate, the smart, funny, tough woman who also happens to be his team president. How Molloy prevails (or doesn't) against this sea of adversity is something only a writer like Mike Lupica would dare to dream up, but if you've ever wondered what you would do if you owned a football team ...well, Lupica's your guy. This is a delight from beginning to end: like Kate, smart, funny, and tough.
