THE BOOK, BY UNCLE HANS

JUST TO REVIEW, “UNCLE HANS” IS REALLY MY BROTHER, JUST THREE YEARS YOUNGER. WE REFER TO HIM AS “UNCLE” AS A TERM OF RESPECT. SURE WE COULD CALL HIM “DOCTOR HANS” , BUT REALLY USING THE TERM “UNCLE” IS AN OLD FAMILY TRADITION FROM THE DEVIL’S LAKE CAMPING DAYS OF OUR YOUTH.

IN 1982, YES 35 YEARS AGO, UNCLE HANS HAD AN IDEA FOR A BOOK. THE TITLE OF THIS BOOK IS:

HOW TO PLAY FOOTBALL AT 65

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE?

WHERE IS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH?

WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?

WHO HAS BEEN QUIETLY ENJOYING THE SIMPLE SOLUTION TO AMERICA’S HEALTHCAR MESS FOR OVER 50 YEARS?

UNCLE HANS BEGAN THE WRITING OF THIS BOOK MANY YEARS AGO, AND THE BOOK IS SETUP SO THAT EVERY OTHER CHAPTER IS ABOUT PLAYING COLLEGE FOOTBALL.  THE ODD CHAPTERS ARE ABOUT THE  FOOTBALL EXPERIENCE AND THE EVEN CHAPTERS ARE A SELF-HELP, LIFESTYLE PHILOSOPHY THAT MIGHT KEEP YOU HEALTHY ENOUGH TO DO YOUR BUCKET LIST AFTER YOU RETIRE, EVEN IF THAT IS TO PLAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL. THE BOOK HAS BEEN HALF DONE FOR MANY YEARS, AND NOW COMES THE WRITING OF THE FOOTBALL CHAPTERS.

UNCLE HANS PLANS ON KEEPING HIS INTERCIRCLE OF LOYAL SUPPORTERS, THE PEOPLE HE SHARED THIS WITH THAT DIDN’T LAUGH OUT LOUD TO HIS FACE, WITH A SERIES OF E-MAIL REPORTS AS HE REPORTS TO FOOTBALL CAMP BEGINNING ON AUGUST 7TH. HE HAS GIVEN ME PERMISSION TO POST THESE REPORTS ON THE HAPPY CAMPERS BLOG.

IT’S OK TO LAUGH, MANY HAVE, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND IT WILL BE EXCELLENT READING AS A 65 YEAR OLD DOCTOR RETURNS TO THE COLLEGE LIFE AND GOES OUT FOR FOOTBALL. I KNOW YOU ALL SHARE OUR CONCERNS FOR HIS NOT GETTING HURT, AND WANT TO KNOW:

HOW TO PLAY FOOTBALL AT 65

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE?

WHERE IS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH?

WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?

WHO HAS BEEN QUIETLY ENJOYING THE SIMPLE SOLUTION TO AMERICA’S HEALTHCAR MESS FOR OVER 50 YEARS?
