Running out of time to find that perfect present for your favorite Ivy League football fan? How about the audio version of Mark Bernstein's book, Football; The Ivy League Origins of an American Obsession? It is available via download from Audible, an Amazon company, for $24.95 if you click HERE.
Here's a little more background on the book:
From the day Princeton played the first intercollegiate game in 1869, the Ivy League shaped football as we know it today. Ever wonder why touchdowns are worth an arbitrary six points? Why a field goal is worth three? How did fight songs become a part of the game, and who wrote the earliest ones? And where did the term "line of scrimmage" come from? It all emerged from the Ivy League. In this new release from Audible, enjoy a journey back in time, as Mark F Bernstein writes and Kyle Tait brings to life the history behind the sport that dominates our Autumn weekends.What's better than having 13 hours, 54 minutes of Ivy League football history to listen to over your next few flights or drives to Ivy League games?
