Books Info:

Papa Bear free pdf This is the first truly comprehensive biography on George Halas, the father of professional football. The founder of the National Football League and father of the Chicago Bears, George Halas single-handedly changed the way Americans spend their Sundays. "Papa Bear" tells the incredible story of how one man grabbed an outlaw game by the throat, shook it up, and made it into the richest and most popular spectator sport on the planet. Nearly 20 years after his death, Halas remains one of the towering figures of professional sports - rivaling the legendary Vince Lombardi - yet there has never been an authoritative biography published about this great American success story. At last, "Papa Bear" fills that gap. Written with unprecedented access to Halas's family, his closest friends, and associates, this thoroughly researched account includes exclusive interviews and a treasure trove of never-published archival materials on the Hall of Famer and his enduring legacy.
