Great Book for Christmas

Merry Christmas from the Indy Idea.

My favorite gift that I received this morning is the book, "More than a Game," by Michael MacCambridge. The author tells the story of pro football's rapid ascent to Number One among U.S. spectator sports.

Everyone who makes decisions for the Indy Racing League should be required to read this book. The rise of the NFL in the television era was no accident. The process was planned and managed by the great commissioner, Pete Rozelle.

I'll stop there because Little Roggespierre is requesting that I put batteries in his new R-C Hot Wheels Team 7-Eleven Indy car.
