Every Day Is Game Day

Recognized as one of the greatest players of all-time, Tarkenton played 18 seasons in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings (1961-66, 1972-78) and the New York Giants (1967-71). The nine-time Pro-Bowler is the Vikings career passing leader with 33,098 yards and career passing touchdown leader with 239.

Tarkenton's book "Every Day Is Game Day" takes readers through his life from the alleys of Washington, D.C., to Athens and on to the NFL. It details the infamous 1975 playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys, the person tragedy he experienced after the game, his love for New York and what it meant to play for the New York Giants, why to this day it is still hard for him to return to the Twin Cities, and why he has thrived in business after leaving football.
