In 1935, the Luckman family didn't sound so lucky: 18-year-old Sid Luckman made headlines across New York City for his high school football exploits in Brooklyn, while his father, Meyer Luckman, was making headlines for a very different reason: the gangland murder of his own brother-in-law. While Meyer was in Sing Sing prison, Sid was a national star on the gridiron and as a Chicago Bear standout! Meet author Richard Rosen with his biography of a Chicago legend in Tough Luck.
