The Ones Who Hit The Hardest ($7) is a stirring portrait of the time when the Steelers rose to become the greatest team ever in the history of NFL. What makes it so poignant is that as the team was rising to greatness their city was literally crumbling around them. It’s the 1970’s, and Pittsburgh desperately needs heroes. The city’s lifeblood, the steel industry, was in massive decline and 150,000 steelworkers found themselves unemployed. This is a stunning account of a team lifting the spirits of the people living in a city that was on its knees. You do not have to be a football fan to appreciate this book.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
