Cleveland native Jim Sulecki will get us in the Super Bowl spirit as he visits the Geauga West Branch Wednesday, January 25th at 7:00 p.m. to talk about his book that details the history of the championship-winning team, the Cleveland Rams. This event is free and open to the general public. Registration required.
Sulecki, a fourth-generation Greater Clevelander, is currently a business journalist,
corporate content director for a business media company in northeastern Ohio, and author of The Cleveland Rams: The NFL Champs Who Left Too Soon, 1936 -1945. His expertise in the matter comes from the stories of his father and grandfather, who were both in attendance at the 1945 NFL Championship Game that the Rams won. Sulecki also did extensive research for the book, even looking through the belongings of superstar quarterback Bob Waterfield that are now under the ownership of his son. Sulecki was awarded the Nelson Ross Award from the Professional Football Researchers Association in 2016.
Sulecki’s book not only details the story of the Rams; it also contains an important account of the city of Cleveland, the early football league, and the similarities to football and the media today. Sulecki is now working on a novel set in modern-day Cleveland.
