About The Book

Readers have the opportunity to enter the world of college football and follow one player through his experiences on the gridiron of the Southeastern Conference for the Auburn Tigers. A Tiger’s Walk observes him as he battles the highs and lows of championship and losing seasons, coaching hirings and firings, and personal success and tragedy.

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, the self-proclaimed “football capital of the South,” Rob Pate grew up well aware of the significance of college football in his home state. At the age of five he embarked on a journey in football that carried him from a proud youth league ballpark in small-town Alabama to the splendor of SEC football, as well as to the National Football League.

Readers can gain an understanding of daily life in college football from the perspective of someone who recently stepped off the field for the very last time. This is one Tiger’s walk in the world of today’s student athlete, helping fans watch from the sidelines and become one of the team.

Amazing Tales from the 2004 Boston Red Sox Dugout: The Greatest Stories from a Championship Season (Tales from the Team)
by Jim Prime (Author)

A look back on a special time for Redsox fans.
By Henry Hazel on April 19, 2014

Its hard to believe that it was ten years ago that the seeming impossible happened. Amazing Tales is a look inside the special 2004 season. This is a must read for every Redsox fan. The memories and feelings that come rushing back as you move through the book are priceless. Jim has chosen an incredible lineup of players and team officials to help tell the story of 2004. There is a great cross section of stars and bench players so you see the season from a number of view points. Certainly a great read coming off last years win and gets you ready for another season, hopefully, of highs. There is a great selection of photos in the book aswell. Give this book a read you will not be disappointed.

Chill Factor: How a Minor-League Hockey Team Changed a City Forever
byDavid Paitson

“Great book, great memories, and great photos (you might be in it!)”
By Brian on March 12, 2015

This book is a fantastic read! I have really enjoyed it thoroughly. I am not an avid reader, but I finished this in two sittings.

David Paitson brought back a lot of great memories and sheds light on a lot of what was going on behind the scenes. There were a lot of things that went wrong or almost went wrong with the Chill, and it is a lot of fun to hear about the experience from Mr Paitson's insider point of view.

What they did with the Chill in Columbus was truly unique and impressive from a lot of perspectives, not just the on-ice product. I am grateful for all of the memories (and Fairground Coliseum smells) which this book evoked.

I also found myself laughing a lot while reading this book. Sometimes, I laughed because I learned something funny and new. Other times, I laughed because I remember the experience/event/promo so fondly or was reminded of ones I nearly forgot. This was a fantastic trip down memory lane, and I got a bonus when I found a picture of my sister, dad, grandfather, and myself cheering in the stands.

This book had many enjoyable stories from Hoosierland and anecdotes of Hoosier Basketball. Laskowski weaved the stories into a delicious helping of I.U. trivia!
