    In a few minutes Holley's going to announce his book deal and he went into the break saying that the subject will fill the story like a good Middle Linebacker should. Could be great if it's Bruschi but my guess is Johnson. Earlier in the week he mentioned what a great guy the subject was and Holley was really impressed when TJ was on one day and Seymour called in to express his appreciation for TJ. Like I said I hope it's Bruschi though.

    Here's the link, like I saod any minute now:

    It's Bruschi. All right. Should be out sometime during the football season. Holley approached him in the middle of last year. Bruschi wants the book to inspire and be about football. They've had some emotional sessions and some laughs going over the book. I guess Tedy actually gives the whole stroke story and how it played in his home. Tedy was very close to having a "9-5 job with the Pats" then decided to play again. Tedy says it's "his words" with great writing by Holley. "Completely different then 'Patriot Reign'" Holley said. Bruschi says "there was alot that went on (with the stroke) that people don't know about". They also have a chapter about the reaction of the media and fans and how he had to stop listening and reading the papers because of all the opinions. Some of the proceeds go to stroke awarness charities.

    I hope Holley includes my favorite Bruschi aphorism, "The FA departure of Givens and the Vinitrator left a hole in my heart."

    I'm confused. Was the book knocked over or simply off course?

    Bruschi is a great choice for a variety of obvious reasons. One of which is that he's played for Parcells, Carroll, and BB and has been a part of the core of the Pats dynasty. Tedy is a source with enough info to fill 400 pages.
