A Novel about a Green Bay Packers Game for the Ages
More about Over Time
The letter is from Dan's great friend, Mark Reid, who played
college football with Dan and died in a car accident just
after realizing his dream of becoming a Green Bay Packers TM pro football player and playing in a Green Bay Game. Mark's friends never understood why he seemed
to be driving away from training camp the night he died. The
letter reminds Dan of the pledge Dan, Mark and two other
friends made to have a twenty-year reunion. Mark was engaged
to Kelly McCluskey, the team's head cheerleader, who is now
struggling to save a charitable organization she started in
his memory. The other friend is Mike Thornton, hilarious
jokester in college, the complete opposite of a jock, now a
bright attorney who still wishes he could have been part of
Dan and Mark's football glory. At the reunion Dan finds that
his "team" from college, though separated by time, distance and
even death, is still very much together.
Dan, pressured by a series of seemingly unrelated negative
events that effect his company, Wilson Industries, and the
contemplated acquisition of a Cable TV network, is lured into
a trap set by Gerald Krauss, who invests in and then cannibalizes
companies, a true 'vulture capitalist'. It seems inevitable that
Krauss will take over and dismantle Wilson Industries.
The acquisition of the Cable TV network is a risky deal as
the network is incurring huge losses. But it has the rights
to broadcast several NFL TM games, including a Green Bay Game between
the Green Bay Packers TM and the Dallas Boys, during which there will be a reunion of the Packers' TM 1966 Green Bay Packers Game Championship Team.
Dan, Mike, Kelly and Charlie must find a way to turn the
broadcast of that one NFL TM game into a national blockbuster
with Super Bowl-like ratings. It all comes down to game day
and the greatest Green Bay Packer TM who never played a game.
Over Time is dedicated to all the people who can close their eyes at night and still see, with absolute clarity, that incredible game, that impossible victory from long ago -and most importantly, still see the athlete who plays forever in our dreams.
The authors are especially grateful that a football legend did indeed visit our favorite sports bar in Phoenix, Arizona, the Red Onion Lounge, on September 17, 1995, and signed autographs for every person there. We all agreed he looked as though he had at least one great game left in him -perhaps even if it went into overtime.
And thanks to our fathers, Owen L. Hill and Harry D. Power, who viewed writing as an exciting and worthwhile endeavor.
