John Grisham Playing For Pizza

For my John Grisham fans, I have news for you. John Grisham's new book "Playing For Pizza", will be released Sept.24. John Grisham has sold over 200 million books worldwide and, American football is the most popular spectator sport in the USA. Football/soccer is played fervently in Europe, Latin America and in Africa. Pizza sales are over 5 billion worldwide every year. I am sure John Grisham's novel, "Playing For Pizza" will be a Bestseller. The idea for his new novel grew out of time the author spent in Italy researching his last novel, 'The Broker,' which was set in Bologna.

"Playing For Pizza"
Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In the AFC Championship game against Denver, to the surprise and dismay of virtually everyone, Rick actually got into the game. With a 17-point lead and just minutes to go, Rick provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock and, of course, was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams.
But all Rick knows is football, and he insists that his agent, Arnie, find a team that needs him. Against enormous odds Arnie finally locates just such a team and informs Rick that, miraculously, he can in fact now be a starting quarterback. Great, says Rick — for which team?
The mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy.
