ROBERT BLAIR KAISER is a former foreign correspondent for Time, a reporter for the NY Times, and the author of 17 books. As a young Jesuit scholastic, he coached high school football in San Francisco, and credits "his kids" (now in their 70s) for inspiring the building of this novel out of one of their game-winning plays, called "Razzle Dazzle."
Razzle Dazzleby Robert Blair Kaiser
Headstrong Jessica Burns inherits the sorry, ever-losing New York Jets and vows (against the advice of her father, a winning high school coach in Colorado) to bring more fun and less violence to the NFL. She does this despite the opposition of the other owners, and the disbelief of most of the media, by finding a coaching genius in a wheel chair in the Arizona desert, falling in love with him, and hiring him to bring his revolutionary new razzle dazzle offense to New York. Win Markey was an offensive coordinator at the St. Louis Rams until his Porsche crashed on a snowy highway and left him a paraplegic. Now, given new life and a new love in Manhattan, he coaches with heart and a wit that surprises the football world and takes the Jets--and Jessica Burns--through a wondrous, record-breaking season all the way to the Super Bowl.

Name:Brackenleaf Brackenleaf is a pretty 8 moon old warrior. She has light gray fur with streaks of gold in it. Her paws, tail tip, and snout are black. Brackenleafs eyes are a striking green, like a forest in newleaf. She has the ability to go into other cats dreams. She doesnt know her parents, and has no siblings. She has no mate or kits, but loves a cat called **********. Her history is a strange one, even she doesnt understand it. She was prophecied about by an old cat who was really a spirit. Her is the prophecy: "The brackish leaf will join a clan, only to be banished and join again." Brackenleaf wears a amulet of dimond on a twisted vine rope. She claims it was given to her by Starclan. She has a deep scar on her back hip, and another on her snout. A badger clawed her on the way to **********. She is good at hunting, climbing, and surprisingly, swimming. She loves to play with the kits, and will watch the younger ones while their mothers go off. Her theme song is "Thriller", and boy, she is a thriller.
