God, If You Are Real.... : An Olympic Dream, Cancer Nightmare, and the creation of Finger Football
by Spud Alford




Overview -

By the time Spud Alford was twenty-one, he had strengthened his athletic skills enough to become a serious contender for the American team at the 1980 Moscow Olympics. Fate, however, had a different idea of how the young track and field star should outpace his competition. Four years later, it looked like Alford might finally get his shot. Again, fate intervened, and this time, young Alford confronted a cancer diagnosis.

God, If You Are Real.... An Olympic Dream, Cancer Nightmare, and the creation of Finger Football is the heartbreaking, hilarious account of one man who time and again passes the wrong end of the torch, only to rally and rise above his seemingly limitless lot of bad luck.

With hope, heart, and humor, this frank and funny account of one man's journey from Olympic hopeful to company leader is certain to inspire readers seeking a refreshing perspective. Anyone who is ready to blaze a trail as an athlete, a businessperson, or as an individual seeking deeper meaning in their days will find plenty to laugh about-and think about-in this rollicking, fast-paced memoir of one life on the skids, with only the help of one lost soul.
