When I was away at college, I received a 200-page working copy of Grandpa Was A Junkie: aka The Double Fake,his memoir. The separate titles reflect both his numerous obsessions (a sports, news, entertainment, business “addict”), and the football play he diagrammed and mailed to San Francisco 49ers headquarters that he remains convinced was used with success in Super Bowl XVI. For what it’s worth, his letter was received a week before the game (“signature required!”), and the play in question, a touchdown pass from Montana to Cooper, was a call not seen from head coach Bill Walsh in years.
