very wise authors, or their PR people, dare to send us a copy of a book that's
about to be published. We gladly accept and hope you will enjoy our take on the
Sports Illustrated Super Bowl
50 Years of the Big Game
It's more than you bargained for - Buy it!
was expecting a coffee table book with nice photos and a synopsis of Super Bowls
past and while it does have that, I was surprised at the amount of content. What
was the weather like, the point spread, the length of the game? There's information
and pictures about the halftime performances along with more pictures. Every Super
Bowl starts with a brief outline of the game. For example - Super Bowl XXV - "The
Bills had a no-huddle offense and the star-stocked makings of a dynasty. The Giants
had a defense big and battering enough to make he-men flinch. After 59 minutes
this test came down to those two enduring words: wide right."
pages contain a complete review. A section called "Just The Facts" has
that and includes pictures of the ticket and the Super Bowl Ring. "The Way
It Was" area for this particular game has one byline by Carl Banks - "He
wanted us to allow Thurman Thomas to run for 100 yards? A couple of guys actually
screamed at Bill Belichick." There's another by Thurman Thomas - "I
think I checked out of the game four times, three times because I needed a breather
and one time when I got hit pretty hard on a tackle by Carl Banks."
example is just a part of their story lines. It's not just a coffee table book
that would be glanced at for a few moments. It's beautifully designed and any
football fan would enjoy having a copy. If you don't pick one up for yourself,
do a friend a favor.
