Know Your Colts History: You Can Do It Too!

51hbl-rmmal

So by now you've probably heard that Tony Dungy has written a children's book.  While I'm slightly put off by him being referred to as New York Times Bestselling Author Tony Dungy, rather than Super Bowl World Champion & Head Coach of the Most Awesomest Team Ever Tony Dungy, it's still nice to see Tony come out with a book for the kids.  At least we know that it's going to be far better than this one.

In all the hoopla surrounding Tony's new book, you might not have heard that former Colts coach Jim Mora is also writing a children's book.  Luckily here at Stampede Blue we were able to pull some strings and we've been able to obtain a pre-release copy of the book which will be coming out later this year.

After the jump, you'll get your first sneak peek at Jim's new book for kids about football.

In football, players come in all different shapes and sizes.  Every player has their own unique skills that make them valuable.

Some players have really strong arms that let them throw the ball a long way!  They play the quarterback position and they throw to the players that are good at catching the ball.  They're called wide receivers.

Then there's other players that are really quick on their feet!  Because they're so fast, it makes them really hard to tackle, so the coach puts the fast players at running back.

Of course, the quarterback, wide receiver, and running back can't just run around and do whatever they want!  That's where the defense comes in.  Their job is to tackle the player on the offense who has the ball and keep him from scoring.

Whether it's throwing the ball, catching the ball, running the ball, or hitting the players that do, everyone with skills can play the game of football.

BUT THEN THERE'S SOME THAT HAVE NO SKILLS!  THEY CAN'T DO DIDDLY POO OFFENSIVELY, THEY CAN'T MAKE A FIRST DOWN, THEY CAN'T RUN THE BALL, THEY DON'T EVEN TRY TO RUN THE BALL, THEY CAN'T COMPLETE A PASS - THEY SUCK.  THEY CAN'T STOP THE RUN, EVERYTIME THE OTHER TEAM GOES DOWN THE FIELD THEY GET POINTS.  I'M TOTALLY EMBARRASSED FOR THEM AND TOTALLY ASHAMED.  THEY DO A HORRIBLE JOB.  THEY SUCK.  THEY STINK.

I DON'T CARE WHO THEY PLAY, WHETHER IT'S A TYKES TEAM, A TEE BALL TEAM,  A KINDERGARTEN TEAM, MUCH LESS A YOUTH FOOTBALL TEAM -- THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BEAT ANYBODY I JUST MENTIONED.  ANYBODY.  DON'T TALK ABOUT GETTING TROPHIES!  TROPHIES?  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  TROPHIES?!?  I JUST HOPE THEY STILL GET JUICE BOXES!
