The Underground Football Encyclopedia : Football Stuff You Never Needed to Know and Can Certainly Live Without
This exhilarating account skips theunforgettable athletic achievements, heroic performers, and exhilarating moments that remind fans of everything they love about sports and honest competition and gives the real skinny on football's unknown history. Author Robert Schnakenberg takes readers through a decidedly snarky trip through the game's rich history of buffoonery, thuggery, fashion missteps, acting careers gone awry, barrel-wearing superfans, touchdown dances, overzealous mascots, needlepoint-loving defensive tackles, unwatchable football-themed movies, and hundreds of other unbelievable-but-true aspects of America's most popular spectator sport."
