‘Building Big Blue’: A Football Talk

January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Big Blue Wrecking Crew Book Cover

The New York Giants were an embarrassment in the late 1970s…

Then a disparate group of characters came together to lead the team on an unlikely journey to the franchise’s first Super Bowl win. There’s Parcells, Simms and Taylor…and Donald Trump, Mark Bavaro and Phil McConkey, too.

Join us for a fun afternoon of football history!  Jerry Barca, author of Big Blue Wrecking Crew: Smashmouth Football, A Little Bit of Crazy and the ’86 Super Bowl Champs, will talk about the strange and revealing elements that go into building a championship team.  He’ll also mix in stories of team building from his first book, Unbeatable: Notre Dame’s 1988 Championship and the Last Great College Football Season.
