The Packers are offering for their fans a 128-page publication commemorating the team's 2010 season and Super Bowl XLV championship. The book's title, One!, refers to cornerback Charles Woodson's emotion-charged postgame address to his teammates following their victory in the NFC title game in Chicago.
"One mind, one goal, one purpose, one heart" is the theme that carried the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XLV, and Woodson's words will forever define a season that saw the Packers teeter on the brink of being eliminated from postseason qualification, to a red-hot finish the team rode to the franchise's 13th NFL championship.
"This book was not ghost-written. It was written by actual staff members, who spent a lot of time in the locker room, at practice, and traveling with the team. They were able to experience all the highs and lows that came with being a part of the team," Tim Connolly, Packers vice president of sales and marketing, said.
One! includes more than 150 photographs in a hard-cover binding with jacket. It is the one and only official Super Bowl XLV commemorative book and it is specially commissioned by the Packers.
The book features an introduction by Head Coach Mike McCarthy, and original and in-depth accounts from Packers editorial staff writers. Readers are treated to insider insights and behind-the-scenes images. Many of those pictures, including those from the team's triumphant ride home from the Super Bowl and its private ring-presentation ceremony, have never been published.
"We have hundreds of thousands of fans all over the world including our shareholders and season ticket holders. We think all of our fans will really enjoy the inside look this book brings. Many of our sponsors have already pre-ordered multiple copies for their customers and employees." Connolly added.
The book retails for $24.95 and is available to pre-order now (click here).
