Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, pro football hall of fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton stops by to chat about the 2009 NFL season and his new book "Every Day Is Game Day".

Recognized as one of the greatest players of all-time, Tarkenton played 18 seasons in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings (1961-66, 1972-78) and the New York Giants (1967-71).

It details the infamous 1975 playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys, the person tragedy he experienced after the game, his love for New York and what it meant to play for the New York Giants, why to this day it is still hard for him to return to the Twin Cities, and why he has thrived in business after leaving football.
