A Subscriber Offer for Hut! Hut! Hike!
My new book Hut! Hut! Hike! will be released in late November-early December. As a Football Archeology subscriber, I’m letting you know that paid subscribers will receive a free copy of the book upon its release.
Here’s a synopsis:
Hut! Hut! Hike! explores the history of football terminology by examining when and why more than 400 familiar words and expressions entered the game. By linking the game’s evolution to changes in its language, readers learn the origins of first string, basic fundamentals, X’s and O’s, long snapper, and hundreds more terms used in every football conversation or broadcasts. In addition, you will learn which change in the game led to dropback and handoff becoming popular and why the names for many defensive player positions emerged in the 1950s and 1960s.
Organized in easy-to-read, bite-size chunks and filled with period images and illustrations, Hut! Hut! Hike! tells football’s history one word at a time.
You can check out example content by reviewing the articles under the Hut! Hut! Hike! header on the home page (previously labeled A Word On Football).
