  • The 2009 NFL Schedule was released today, and we are not happy how it turned out, for many reasons
  • Eric talks about meeting Harry Kalas in Chicago in 2008
  • We remember Harry Kalas, the voice of the Philadelphia Phillies and NFL Films, who passed away on Monday
  • Tommy Lawlor from The Scouts Notebook and PhiladelphiaEagles.com’s Fan-Demonium will be joining us next week to talk with us about what we should expect from the Draft

Making The Big Game is Released

Back on the 43rd episode of our EaglesFanCast podcast, Eric and I talked with Jeff Fekete for a bit.  Jeff is the author of the book, Making the Big Game: Tales of an Accidental Spectator.  Well today, April 6th, Jeff’s book is finally out.

We’re very happy we were able to talk to Jeff about the book months before it’s release, and gained a little behind-the-scenes look at the author himself and what went into the story.  I had said at the time that I would let our listeners and readers know when it was going to be released, and this is it.

Congratulations, Jeff, we’re looking forward to reading it ourselves.

The book is being published through Two Harbors Press, and you can obtain the book in many ways (I’ve listed a few below.)  I noticed that you could also get a signed copy through the book’s website as well.
