It's Only a Game

He's a man who knows the importance of hard work -- and he's living proof that it pays off.



This is the absolutely guaranteed 100% mostly true story of the man who gained sports immortality as the first quarterback to win four Super Bowls -- and who became America's most popular sports broadcaster. As honest, unexpected, and downright hilarious as the man himself, It's Only a Game shows the many sides of Terry: the former pipeline worker, cattle-raiser, professional singer, youth minister, actor, television and radio talk-show host, and public speaker -- and replays all the hard-hitting, bone-crunching details from his heyday with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

More than a collection of his funniest stories, It's Only a Game is the personal account of Terry's search for the life before and after only he could tell it.
