ABOUT THE BOOK:
Rob Gross is a pop culture junkie whose life had been long guided by his obsessions for the Grateful Dead, Animal House, Godfather II, and the San Diego Chargers. For Rob, college in Western New York is a blissful m lange of malt liquor, bootleg tapes, casual sex, and fraternity "one-piece" parties. Life becomes more challenging when the Dead's Jerry Garcia dies and Rob gets fired from his first post-graduate job that he had grown to despise. Without the benefit of a playbook, and after much trial and tribulation, Rob ultimately finds a career and the woman of his dreams in New York City and learns that settling down isn't the same thing as settling.
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR DRUNK ON SUNDAY:
"You don't have to be a Chargers fan to relate to Ross Warner. If your team has ever hurt you or let you down, you already get it. Sadly, that's all Ross and I know. I have known Ross for 4 decades and we have shared our football frustrations and dashed hopes more times than I can remember, (but Ross recalls every one.)."
- Eric Stangel, Emmy-winning Writer/EP The Late Show with David LettermanChargers fan since 1979 and friend of Ross' for life
"I saw Ross at numerous games throughout the years. He has seen the team everywhere. His fandom and his knowledge are unparalleled. He loves his Chargers."
- Jim Steeg, Former Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, San Diego Chargers
"In nearly three decades of covering the Chargers, I've come across few fans as passionate and as witty as Ross Warner. He has countless tales and he knows how to tell them I'm looking forward to his book, Drunk On Sunday."
- Jay Paris, Former Chargers Beat Writer and Author of Game Of My Life: San Diego Chargers
"Even as a Bills fan, scarred for life by Dan Fouts to Ron Smith with 2:08 left, I still enjoyed this tale. It's terrific and right there with Frederic Exley's A Fan's Notes."
- Rich Blake, Talking Proud: Rediscovering the Magical 1980 Season of the Buffalo Bills.
