Playing for Pizza is about an American football player by the name of Rick Dockery.  He was a quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, when everything went wrong.  He screwed up in the AFC Championship game by throwing three interceptions and lost his spot in the NFL for good.  He then goes to Italy to continue his dream of playing football as his life’s career.  In Italy, he leads his team to victory and also finds a new lover.

Overall, I wasn’t too thrilled with Playing for Pizza.  I thought the book was very dull for most of the book.  It did have its good spots, however.  The main reason I decided to read this book because I enjoy reading sports books over any other type of book.  This book, however, was not as great of a book as I had hoped.  The book does give a lot of insight on the insides of the sport, from the press, managers, fans, etc.  I never really knew all of the stuff that these athletes go through on a regular basis.  Personally, I don’t recommend this book to other readers, because it is fairly dull.  If you would like to learn more about the insides of the game, however, this is a good book for you.
