At age ninety-two, the last surviving player from Super Bowl XXI in 1987, Carl decides to win the New York Marathon or die trying.
And that’s exactly what he does. In front of the world’s cameras, he crashes to the ground, finished. But his hat doesn’t stay finished. Runner after runner picks it up and relays it to the front-runners, where a battle of epic proportion ensues to get Carl’s hat across the finish line first.
It’s a tale that will warm your heart while it hurts your knees and rips out your lungs. But it proves that, even in a future largely devoid of honor, it still remains among the world-class elite runners who do the impossible every time they take the field.
