A hugely popular and beloved football commentator and former player with the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens, Tony Siragusa offers his uncensored insider's look at the NFL and his hilarious take on life off the gridiron.
The New York Times called him a "modern-day John Madden." Tony Soprano called him "Frankie Cortese." His teammates called him "Goose." Whatever you call him, Tony Siragusa is larger than life in every possible sense, from his personality to his physique to his colorful career, hilarious stories, and bombastic take on life.
Goose is the book that Siragusa's fans have been clamoring for, to hear more from the Super Bowl champ-turned-commentator-turned-actor, who has brought his unmistakable style and intense love for life to every endeavor. In a memoir that is guaranteed to make you laugh, cheer, shake your head, laugh some more, and then think seriously, Siragusa offers stories, life lessons, and perspective gained from his unbelievable collection of experiences. He also offers a no-holds-barred look at the NFL, with locker room stories and surprising glimpses at the way things are done when the cameras (or the refs) aren't looking. His narratives range from hilarious anecdotes about his New Jersey childhood and wild college days, to behind-the-scenes glimpses at some of the greatest players in football history, to Goose's opinions about the current state of the NFL. And he shares them all with his signature love for life and uncensored insight.

A Football Classic for Jersey and way beyond...
This book reads like you're sitting down and talking with Goose and listening to him tell stories from his childhood through the present day. If you love football, this book is a MUST READ. Pro Football insights and behind the scenes details, with his fearless honesty and complete disregard for whom he might offend (including Roger Goodell and the NFL), are way more detailed than you'll get from anyone else in his position. Great themes throughout championing the underdog, lifelong work ethics, and loyalty make it an inspiring read worth passing along to today's youth as well (over 13 as there are some Howard Stern moments in there). There's one chapter after another that made me stay up way past my bedtime for a few nights…
From one Jersey Guy to another, I read this book while going thru therapy for a neck injury. It got me thru a ruff time. Goose is not only a great athlete but a great person. Coming from a Giants fan , that's a huge compliment. Thanks , Rob S. Gilbert AZ formally Red Bank NJ
Goose is an intelligent guy. That's why things come easy to him. But he also cares a lot about people. In his rough and tumble way, he manages to touch the lives of those around him. Too bad about Cameron's hand though.
