It Has Nothing To Do With Age provides self-help principles. The inspirational stories give concrete illustrations of overcoming many of life's challenges. Difficulties pertaining to depression, grief, divorce, and death are presented and worked through by the participants. Physical impairments, injuries, overcoming issues with weight, alcohol, and nicotine are also dealt with and resolved by the athletes.

This book provides a model on how to overcome some of the difficulties that confront all of us . Further, this read sheds a beacon of light on preventive measures for good physical and mental health. Research demonstrates that exercise is an important component in treating such ailments and debilitating illness such as depression, stroke, heart disease, brain or cognitive malfunction,and Alzheimer's disease.

I suggest that proper exercise can be used as a preventive measure for psychological, cognitive, and physical health as well. Follow my prescription and lead a better, more fulfilling, and healthier life.

Ed Budde,Conrad Dobler of the NFL in Kansas City

"Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody."– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Next week I am going to Kansas City where I’ll be joined by Ed Budde and Conrad Dobler for a book and autograph signing. I first met Ed on the football field at Denby High School in Detroit, Michigan in the late 1950s. I am one year older than Ed and in my senior year we had a tremendous football team that was talked about in the press. In fact, they compared our 1957 team to other great football teams in the history of the state of Michigan. We were considered one of the best. That year, I made the Detroit All- City Team while Ed made All-American.
Frank and Ed which one's Frank?
Ed graduated the following year and went on to become All-American at Michigan State University. He was drafted by both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs. He chose the Kansas City Chiefs and was signed for $15,000 in 1963. After 13 seasons, his salary rose to $75,000. Currently, he is the president of the Kansas City Chiefs alumni Association. His oldest son Brad graduated from USC as an All-American and was also the number one pick by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ed arranged and invited Conrad Dobler to join us at the following book signings. Conrad has written a book titled “Pride and Perseverance”    and played for the St. Louis Cardinals NFL football team. Our schedule next week is as follows: on September 5th between 3 and 7 PM we will be at the Outlaw Cigar at 136 th and Metcalf. On September 6th between 1 and 4 PM we will be at the Casual Male at 8721 Metcalf; and from 5 to 8 PM At the Foundry, Big and Tall on 119th and Metcalf. On September 7th we will be from 11 to 1 PM at Jerry’s Sports at 149th and Metcalf; and from f 4 to 6 PM at Diebel’s Cigar at 119th and Roe.

Ed is also involved in raising money for charities and is hosting a silent auction and an NFL alumni golf tournament. Aside from being an All-Pro, Ed is really a nice guy and I’m fortunate to have a friend like that. Remember his saying “keep moving.”
I also want to direct you to the September/October issue of endurance racing for an article that I wrote on mental toughness. Also, listen in to Ed’s radio interview on sports radio 810 on this blog.
