Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982306407, Hardcover)Jam-packed with cool trivia; history-making records; unforgettable moments; and wacky true tales of your favorite games, players and events. These tales from the gridiron will set fans abuzz. Fun, filled with intriguing lore from football history, and engagingly written, they're almost as exciting as the Super Bowl itself. Find out all about the culture of superstition and the crazy events that surround the game, about the hazing that's an integral part of the sport, and about how a team's captain gets his fellow players all fired up. Some of the fascinating stories include: the Eagles beating the Giants just before time ran out when New York's fumble led to Philadelphia's miracle at the Meadowlands; how Dallas Cowboys' coach Jimmy Johnson managed to catch a glimpse of the Buffalo Bills' new formation when a television station accidentally broadcast it; and how San Francisco Forty Niners' Ronnie Lott gave 110% and his pinky all for the love of the sport. Features thirty cartoons highlighting the humor of the situation, as well as a look back at all the things that make football so special.
