INCOMPLETE PASSES: REFLECTIONS ON LIFE, LOVE, AND FOOTBALL
Linda Lange turned twelve in 1959, the year Vince Lombardi arrived in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and changed everything. To say that Linda embraced Lombardi’s Packers would be an understatement. Her new passion transformed the way she viewed her hometown, the world, and most important, herself.
Football led Linda to girlfriends Pam, Del, and Carla, and the young women formed a lasting bond that would survive distance, marriage, divorce, careers, and motherhood. In her entertaining and often witty memoir, Linda chronicles the years the infatuated teens followed their heroes around Green Bay and shares an intriguing glimpse into how the Packers helped all of them face their journeys through life with courage and humor—even when Linda dives into a mid-life calamity that somehow results in the creation of a musical comedy.
Sometimes nostalgic, often wry, Incomplete Passes will resonate with anyone who fantasizes about romance with a celebrity, questions a life decision, or revels in the joy of reconnecting with friends.
