Just found out today that the author of "The Chief", Jim O'brien, has allowed us to do an interview with him, as early as next week!!! It will be a real honor to speak with him and get some insight on his inspiration for the book.
Big thanks goes out to Lloydfan4life, who met Jim and picked up an autographed copy of the book last weekend when he was in Pittsburgh for the game. In their conversations on Saturday evening I believe it was, he sent me a text with the picture he got with Jim. I texted him back and asked him to talk to Jim about possibly doing an interview with us.
I spoke to Mr. O'brien via email just today and he was gracious enough to give us alittle time next week to speak with him.
I'll be lining up some questions to ask so if anybody has them please post up here or PM them to me ASAP! I don't know the exact date/time of the call yet but I should find that out in the coming days.
