What Washington Can Learn From the World of Sports

“There are a lot of similarities between sports and life. I’ve found that out after being fired from coaching. Who better to explain what Washington can learn from sports than George Allen? He’s the son of a Hall of Fame coach, a former player himself, and has had vast experience as a national political figure. Interesting, right between the eyes, great reading!”
—JON GRUDEN, commentator on Monday Night Footballand former NFL Coach

“The good Governor George Allen shows how sports is all about competition and winning and losing and playing by the rules, while Fedzilla is an unaccountable beast, ripping up the rulebook, eating our most entrepreneurial citizens, and taking this country to hell post haste. Great book, important lessons, and sound advice from a guy who gets it.”
—TED NUGENT, rock star and best-selling author of Ted, White, and Blue

“George Allen has written a great book that demonstrates a truly unique way to advance conservative ideas. A home run.”
—PETER SCHWEIZER, best-selling author of Do as I Say (Not as I Do)

“George Allen has great insight into what Washington can learn from the world of sports. The founding fathers worked together as a team in spite of their differences; they understood the importance of a ‘balance of power,’ just as Coach Allen used to preach ‘everyone just do your own job and everything else will fall into place’ and ‘be consistent in your responsibilities and take nothing for granted and we will win.’ Politicians in Washington need to be reminded of their duties, their responsibility to work as a team, and not let the media and polls sway their decisions.”
—BRIG OWENS, former Washington Redskins defensive back
