Blind sided

Back in 2006 the book, “The Blind Side” appeared in my mailbox. Hadn’t heard of it and had a difficult time of trying to understand exactly what it was   about from reading the book jacket. But I jumped at it and was glad I did. The author Michael Lewis combines a look at how the position of left tackle has evolved in football and weaves it in with the life of Michael Oher who is now with the Baltimore Ravens.

If you’re looking for a good football book, I’d recommend it.

Also, the movie is a riot. Sandra Bullock plays the role of the woman who found Oher and offered him a new life. She’s a Southern belle with a steely edge. It’s not all about football, it’s about life too. A good way to spend a few hours.

Read more about Lions' left tackle Jeff Backus in Tuesday’s Oakland Press.
