Born Fanatic: My Life in the Grip of the NFL (Paperback)

Just in time for Father’s Day (Sunday, June 17),  “Born Fanatic” book release features Family & Forgiveness in the Face of Football Fanaticism

The bond between a father and son can be just as special and unique as it is tumultuous and challenging. Add in a father whose attitude varies dependent upon the outcome of his pro-football career and the dynamic becomes all the more chaotic. This is the foundation for the story of Michael McCormack and his father in his April 2018 release, Born Fanatic: My Life in the Grip of the NFL.

From his first breath, McCormack’s life was football. As the oldest son of the world champion Cleveland Brown, former head coach to the Eagles and Seahawks, and NFL Hall of Famer with whom he shares the same name, McCormack has watched literally from the sidelines as his father’s career would make or break more than six hundred Sundays in his life. And these Sunday games just scratched the surface as McCormack began a lifelong journey as a ‘born fanatic’ in the cauldron of professional football.

No ordinary football memoir, in McCormack’s Born Fanatic, he offers a glimpse into his unique experience with football fanaticism, leaving fans and readers alike both nodding with understanding and surprised by his insights into one of America’s most beloved pastimes. Few individuals have learned about pro football from the classroom of life the way McCormack has and through his storytelling — woven with research and insights from his “insider perspective” — readers are given a deep look into what makes football fanatics tick and inspires them to meet the challenge of recovering the most important thing about pro football before it’s too late.

About the Author:  Oldest son and namesake of a world champion Cleveland Brown and NFL Hall of Famer, Michael McCormack is a lawyer, writer, speaker and, still to this day, pro football fanatic living outside of Seattle, WA. His wife, Melissa, and their blended family of five kids give him a hard time about his endless use of sports metaphors, but he gets the last laugh as the best fantasy footballer in the house. McCormack shares his lifelong journey in the grip of the NFL with his debut memoir, Born Fanatic.  Learn more at, and connect with McCormack on Twitter and through his blog.
