A couple of us in the NWBL headquarters were onto this book early, when it came out last fall. And though the UW football team didn’t fare so well (again), the book about the team’s 20th Century glory days is a champion. Scoreboard, Baby: A Story of College Football, Crime, and Complicity recently took home a […]2011 Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America in the “Best Fact Crime” category.
Read what NWBL wrote in October while pumping an appearance by the authors, and read the book. It’s a tale that goes way beyond football and is far stronger than a simple collection of the original newspaper chronicles. Look into those deep, dark eyes. Edgar doesn’t lie.
