Overview

"One mind, one goal, one purpose, one heart." That was the mantra that united the players of the 2010-11 Green Bay Packers and carried them to victory in Super Bowl XLV. No story in recent sports memory rivals that of the Packers' quest to bring a Super Bowl championship and the Lombardi trophy back to Titletown. Green Bay may be the smallest city in America to have a major pro sports franchise, but it also has the most passionate following and loyal fans, key factors in the team overcoming a rough start to the season and achieving the improbable feat of winning three straight road games to reach the Super Bowl. That story is chronicled here, in the only official book specially commissioned by the Packers to commemorate this historic victory.

This beautifully produced book features an Introduction by Head Coach Mike McCarthy, new, in-depth stories from the Packers editorial staff writers, as well as hundreds of photographs that tell the story of the team's epic season—from their roller-coaster start to the must-win final game of the regular season to their decisive march through the playoffs, all capped by their momentous and inspiring victory over the vaunted Pittsburgh Steelers. Insider insights and behind-the-scenes images, many never before published, include photographs from the team plane on the ride home from Super Bowl XLV, the triumphant return to Lambeau Field, the jubilant parade, even the invitation-only private ring ceremony.

This story transcends football and speaks to the power of passion, commitment, and unity. ONE: The Official Commemorative of the Super Bowl XLV Champion Green Bay Packers is the must-have keepsake for football fans young and old looking to revel in the glory of one classic season and one truly unforgettable achievement.

Packers. Love them. For my son for Christmas, college student, not a fan of reading for fun at this point, however he went through this book as soon as he opened it.
