Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "From league to league, from country to country, from small towns to big cities, Bob has seen it all! His football tales and football travels are fascinating. Bob Ackles has literally gone all the way!" -Chris Berman, ESPN"I have known Bobby Ackles since he was the Water Boy. Now he is the Wonder Boy! Bobby Ackles didn't put the BC Lions on the map once. He put them on the map twice! Bobby has done more for the game of football than anyone I know. And he isn't stopping yet. Go, Bobby, go!" -Allan Fotheringham, Author"Bob Ackles is in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame. He is also a charter member of the 'Nice Guys Hall of Fame.' I'm honored to call Bob a friend. He is one of the most accomplished executives in all of sports and his story will be must reading for any sports fan." -Bill Pollian, President of the Indianapolis Colts"Bob and Kay Ackles have experienced ultimate highs and lows in every level of professional football in two countries. In the years Bob worked for me both with the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins he was a loyal, tireless worker. He was always upbeat and positive. Bob and Kay are wonderful people who have some great stories about their experiences." -Jimmy Johnson, Former Head Coach of the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys"Bobby Ackles is truly a living legend in British Columbia. He proves that nice guys can win! They don't make 'em any better than Bobby!" -Jim Pattison, President, the Pattison Group"Every once in awhile I get very, very lucky. I had been looking for over a year-and-a-half for a new President and CEO for the BC Lions and I had interviewed several excellent candidates, but none of them had the proper football background. Bob Ackles was truly a great acquisition for the BC Lions and for the community of Vancouver. With his enormous talent and knowledge he has developed the Lions, once again into a dominant position in both Vancouver and the Canadian Football League." -David Braley, Owner of the BC Lions Football Club"Everywhere Bob Ackles has gone in football--Vancouver, Dallas, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Miami, Las Vegas and back to Vancouver--he's made things better. We, here in Vancouver, are doubly blessed because what could be better than that?" -Kent (Cookie) Gilchrist, Sports Columnist for the Vancouver Province"I have known Bobby Ackles for more than 25 years. His football knowledge is unquestioned. It's his ability to relate that knowledge to both the game and the communities in which it is played that makes him unique. Bobby is honest and straightforward. He promises exactly that - qualities that will jump off the pages and make for great reading." -Brian Williams, Commentator, CTV & TSN.

Riassunto: In 1953, Bobby Ackles became the first water boy in the BC Lions Football Club. Today he is the team?s President and CEO. His star rose quickly from the very beginning, taking him from the sidelines to the top job and three Grey Cup championships. An integral member of the Lions? organization for over 50 years, Bobby Ackles has seen and done it all in the extraordinary world of professional football.

Not only did he go from lowly Water Boy to the executive suite in the CFL, Ackles also spent fifteen years in the NFL--six seasons with the mighty Dallas Cowboys, and then on to the Arizona Cardinals, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Miami Dolphins?and he even served a brief stint in the short-lived XFL as Vice President and General Manager of the Las Vegas Outlaws. As the only man to hold executive positions in all three professional leagues, Ackles offers up a unique perspective on pro football in North America.

The Water Boy is Bob Ackles? engaging memoir, a candid, personal account of his life and his amazing career in the game of football. From his humble beginnings, personally and professionally, Ackles has risen to become one of the most respected executives in football and in sports in general, both in Canada and the United States.

With veteran journalist Ian Mulgrew, Ackles shares his rich, expansive life openly, with humour and amazing insights into the sport of football and its personalities, his long-running love affair with his wife Kay, his grasp on leadership and running a successful business.

The Water Boy is a fascinating look inside the locker rooms and the owners? boxes of the football world in North America, and an engaging telling of a life lived to its fullest.

Dal risvolto interno: In 1953, Bobby Ackles became the first water boy in the BC Lions Football Club. Today he is the team?s President and CEO. His star rose quickly, taking him from lowly Water Boy to Equipment Manager, Director of Football Development, Assistant General Manager, then General Manager?and eventually to the top job and three Grey Cup championships. An integral member of the Lions? organization for over 50 years, Bobby Ackles has seen and done it all in the extraordinary world of professional football.

The Water Boy is Bob Ackles? engaging memoir, a candid, personal account of his life and his more than 50 years in the game of football. From his humble beginnings, personally and professionally, Ackles has risen to become one of the most respected executives in football and in sports in general, both in Canada and the United States .

Not only did he go from the sidelines to the executive suite in the CFL, but after 34 years with the Lions, he was recruited by then-president and general manager Tex Schramm to the NFL to join the Dallas Cowboys as their Vice President of Pro Personnel; he then became Vice President of Player Personnel, remaining with Dallas for six seasons and helping to assemble the mighty team that would go on to win Super Bowls in 1993, 1994 and 1996.

Ackles? fifteen years in the NFL took him not only to Dallas, but also the Arizona Cardinals, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Miami Dolphins?and he even served a brief stint in the short-lived XFL as Vice President and General Manager of the Las Vegas Outlaws. As the only man to hold executive positions in all three professional leagues, Ackles offers up a unique perspective on pro football in North America .

More than that, he gives us a fascinating account of over 50 years in the game. He reveals an insider?s insight on the sports and business cultures in both Canada and the US , and recounts frank and entertaining stories about many characters in the game: owners, coaches, and players, such as Jerry Jones, Vince McMahon, Tom Landry, Jimmy Johnson, Adam Rita, Don Matthews, Wally Buono, and many more.

With veteran journalist Ian Mulgrew, Ackles shares his rich, expansive life openly, with humour and amazing insights into the sport of football and its personalities, his long-running love affair with his wife Kay, his grasp on leadership and running a successful business. The Water Boy is a fascinating look inside the locker rooms and the owners? boxes of the football world in North America , and an engaging telling of a life lived to its fullest.
