Historic Photos of University of Alabama Football Giveaway!!!


I seriously love Turner Publishing. And I REALLY love it when they send me books to share with you!!

This book is a great one.

Well, it's a great one if you're in half the population of the state, anyway.

"Historic Photos of University of Alabama Football" was just released LAST WEEK, and they sent me a copy to give away to you!

This book weaves an amazing story. The pictures start in 1892, each with it's own short story. And as you flip through the book, you literally feel as if you are stepping through time. The stories are fascinating and the pictures are spellbinding. And, of course, Bear Bryant can be seen from the 1930's and 40's when he was a player, through to the 80's in his last coaching days.

Here is a video of some of the pages in the book:


Also, there will be an amazing launch party at the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame on July 14th at 5:30 pm that is free and open to the public! I will be attending and covering the event on Alabama Bloggers, and I definitely encourage you to come as well - it is sure to be an awesome event!

The author and Alabama Alum, Joseph "Woody" Woodruff will speak and sign copies of the book, and former Alabama Football Stars Tommy Brooker, Jerry Duncan, and Murray Legg will attend as well. The event is sponsored by Alabama Booksmith.

I have one of these amazing books to give away! If you would like to enter, just comment on this post! You may earn the following extra entries:

1. Subscribe to the feed of Alabama Bloggers
2. Become a follower of Alabama Bloggers
3. Follow @AlabamaBloggers on Twitter
4. Tweet about this giveaway
5. Put the Alabama Bloggers button on your blog
6. Attend the Launch Party!!

Be sure to comment an extra comment for each entry!

This contest is open until Monday, July 20th. A winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Tuesday, July 21st.

Good luck, and I hope to see you at the launch party!!

p.s. - I will also have a giveaway on my personal blog, Grasping for Objectivity in my Subjective Life, on FRIDAY for another copy of this book - be sure to sign up there also!!

Remember the first time I walked thru the football dorm while in town to watch Kenny Stabler play as quarterback. Was overwhelmed by the quality of the facility.
