Author Signing: Upton Bell, "Present at the Creation: My Life in the NFL and the Rise of America's Game"

Posted by BN2160

We are very excited to welcome Upton Bell, former General Manager of the NE Patriots, as he discusses, does a Q&A session and signs his newest book, "Present at the Creation: My Life in the NFL and the Rise of America’s Game"

This book is a must have for all NFL fans and this is an opportunity you won't want to miss!

----To understand how the NFL became the sports phenomenon it is today, you can study its history or you can live its history as an active participant. Upton Bell grew up at the knee of the NFL’s first great commissioner, his father, the legendary Bert Bell, who not only saved the game from financial ruin after World War II but was one of its greatest innovators. Coining the phrase “On any given Sunday,” Bert invented the pro football draft and proposed sudden death rules.
