Also, Christo helps Shabal buy a suicide vests that can't be detected by any metal detector ever created. Shabal's plan is to sneek in the U.S. and blow up key places in the U.S. with his small Jihad army. Christo is the main person to smuggle Shabal in the U.S. With the U.S. in a major crisis, Christo will be able to make billions of dollars and will hide his family with tons of money.

Tom Clancy Presents Act of Valor - Dick Couch, George Galdorisi

Book Blog #1

This book is based on the movie "Act of Valor." It is a fictional book about U.S. SEAL team seven. The actors in the movie are real Navy SEALs. The book is about SEAL team seven fighting two terrorists, Abu Shabal and Mikhail Troikawicz a.k.a Christo. I have read that Christo has kidnapped a doctor named Lisa Morales. Although Morales is a doctor, she also works for the C.I.A. Right now Lieutenant Roark Engel and Chief Dave Nolan (leaders of SEAL team seven) are preparing to save Morales from Christo's men.

The SWCCs are a special ops unit that works on boats. The SWCC either take SEALs into battle or extract them. In this book the SWCC will extract the SEALs from the place where Morales is kept. While the SWCC is moving to extraction point, the SEALs have landed miles away by HALO (High Altitude Low Opening.) As the SEALs and SWCC are moving in, Morales is being tortured at the highest level. Currently, the SEALs are going into Christo's Compound.

The SEALs had taken over the compound and rescued Morales. While they were going to extract, tangos came and chased the SEALs. However, the SWCC came and opened fire on the tangos. The SWCC used Gatling guns (7.65 mm NATO rounds) and .50 calibers. The fight lasted 20 seconds.

Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices & Priorities of a Winning Life - Tony Dungy

Book Blog 2

Dungy is an undrafted rookie SS for the Pittsburgh Steelers. During his short NFL career (SF 49ers, NY Giants after Pittsburgh). Dungy returned to Pittsburgh and became the youngest coach in NFL history. In Pittsburgh, Dungy meet his future wife and started a family two years later. Dungy is the Defensive Coordinator for the Steelers. Dungy also became a stronger Christian because of all the other great Steelers, Larry Brown, John Kolb, Donnie Shell, and John Stallworth.

Dungy becomes the defensive backs coach for the Kansas City Chiefs. His boss becomes head coach Marty Schottenheimer, former defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns. Marty promised Tony that he can get the defensive coordinator spot after the other one left but instead went with a friend of his for the job. Tony didn't stay for long as he got a new high paying job in Minnesota. Denny Green became his new boss and taught Tony things he needed to become a head coach. Finally Tony became the head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Tampa community never liked the Buccaneers because they couldn't win games. Dungy led the Buccaneers (with great draft picks) into their first Playoff birth since 1982. However the next week was a disappointment in Green Bay as the Packers won. (That year the Denver Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers 31-24 in the Super Bowl. MVP was Terrell Davis and John Elway's first Super Bowl win. That following year John Elway led the Broncos to another Super Bowl victory and the Broncos became back-to-back Super Bowl champions. Elway retired in the next year and went into the Hall of Fame in 2004.)

Book Blog 4

Ok, there isn't a lot to say in this blog, but I'll manage six more sentences. Tony brought the Buccaneers to their third playoff birth in four years. Tony had to fire his Offensive Corrdinator. When that happened the team started to crumble underneath him. However he just adopted a little boy into his family. There you go, I've gotten six more sentences.

Never Die Easy: The Autobiography of Walter Payton - Walter Payton, Don Yaeger

Walter Payton is known as one of the best players in NFL history, however he has another thing he is known for. Every Christmas the Walter Payton Foundation would buy millions of dollars in toys and clothes for the young homeless children in Chicago. These kids never had a Christmas before so Payton would invite Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, etc. to meet the kids for a huge diner. When Payton died the Walter Payton Foundation stayed working until 1999. Everyone that worked with Payton would always remember what he did for the kids. Now Payton has liver cancer and is waiting for a new liver. Yes this is how Payton died, by cancer. He was only 44 years old. No one will ever forget how amazing Walter Payton was.

Never Die Easy: The Autobiography of Walter Payton - Walter Payton, Don Yaeger

Never Die Easy part 2

Walter Payton is now going to Chicago to play for the Bears. Remember he is from the deep South in a small town named Columbia, Mississippi and now he is in Chicago Illinois in the North. He is one of the few people from Columbia to make millions of dollars and play in the NFL. He was from Jackson State, a small black college. In those days the U.S had different college associations. The popular one (which still stands today) was the NCAA. Walter wasn't in that one. He was in the SWAC. But now he was the 4th overall pick in the NFL draft. It was either the Dallas Cowboys @ pick 3 or Chicago @ pick 4 in the first round. Now in his 3rd or 4th year he has a new coach named Dick Buckas.

This entry will tell more about Walter Payton as a person not an athlete. Walter Payton brook Jim Brown's record. Jim Brown is a retired Cleveland Brown and like Walter fights for every inch on the field and never goes out of bounds. When Walter broke the record he moved on with the game. He never bragged about making the record he moved on with everyone else. after every game he stayed on the field and made sure he signed every autograph and hang out with all the fans. At the end of what I have read is Walter Payton wants to win a Super Bowl for the fans.

Payton is retired from the NFL and is going to be the first black NFL owner of the St. Louis Rams. However his business partners fought for control of the Rams. As that idea failed, Payton became a race car driver for the Sports 2000. Payton got into a horrible car accident, but didn't get hurt to bad. Payton eventually became and owner in Sports 2000. Payton owned a lot of small businesses in Chicago. One thing his business partners remember about him is that Payton always had fun with customers and the employees. Another thing about Payton is he loved fan mail. When a fan wrote to him he would reply or call them if they wrote their number. Finally Walter Payton got a contract with the NFL to drive their car.

Never Die Easy: The Autobiography of Walter Payton - Walter Payton, Don Yaeger

Never Die Easy part 1

My book is an autobiography by Walter Payton. I haven't read a lot so far however I read about his high school football career. For those who don't know Walter Payton, he was an NFL running back for the Chicago Bears in the mid 1980s. He is one of the quickest running backs in NFL history. He grew up in a small southern town named Columbia, Mississippi. Walter Payton never played high school football until he was a Junior. He was in a black high school but was integrated with the white high school in the '60s. Right now I'm reading about Walter Payton going into a small black college named Jackson State.
