Sportswriter Puts NFL Dream Into Action

Do you have questions for Stefan Fatsis?

Millions of boys dream of playing in the National Football League. Few will realize that dream.

At the age of 43, sports journalist Stefan Fatsis finally got a chance to kick it with the big boys. He talks about his experience with the Denver Broncos and how being a player in the NFL is much different than watching it on TV as a fan.

Fatsis' book on his experience is entitled, A Few Seconds of Panic: A 5-Foot-8, 170-Pound, 43-Year-Old Sportswriter Plays in the NFL.
