  • Playing For Pizza - John Grisham

    This book is the biggest departure from the legal fiction I am used to reading from Grisham. It should be a quick read (just over 300 pgs in paperback) if I can just sit still long enough to flip pages.

    The story is quite funny and written to a male audience. Rick Dockerty is an NFL player, quarterback, playing for the Browns against the Broncos in the Superbowl playoffs. The Browns have the game absolutely cinched up with a 17-point lead and only minutes on the clock. But minutes are all Dockerty needs to execute three disastrous pass plays, handing the win over to Denver in the last play of the game. And in the process, Dockerty is just slammed by two linemen, cleaning his clock but good! His agent cannot find him a spot on an NFL roster to save his life. Managers are actually calling the agent ahead of time saying don't even bother calling. With nothing to lose, Dockerty's agent puts a call in to the Panthers.... the Parma Panthers.---That's Parma as in Parmesean cheese parma....in northern Italy, where pigskin football is an oddity with a super small fanbase.

    So it is that Rick Dockerty, shamed NFL quarterback, finds himself playing football in Italy. His teammates include a judge, a baker, cafe owners, truck drivers, salesmen, etc. who speak very little if any English.

    So far, it is a pretty amusing story and Grisham's descriptions of the locale and food and culture of Parma, Italy is vivid. Makes me wanna catch a flight and eat at the places he writes about!
