The Super Bowl: The First Fifty Years of America's Greatest Game
In 1966, as the champions of the AFL and NFL prepared to play each other for the first time, Kansas City Chiefsowner Lamar Hunt wrote the following to Commissioner Pete Rozelle: I have kiddingly called the championship game the Super Bowl, which obviously can be improved upon.
How wrong Hunt was. After the AFL merged with the NFL, Super Bowl became the official title of the NFL championship game in the years to come. In celebration of the first fifty Super Bowls, David Fischer traces its evolution from a game that didnt sell out in 1967 to a worldwide phenomenon with a viewership in the hundreds of millions.
Packed with dozens of arresting full-color illustrationshighlighting game action, memorabilia, and players and coachesThe Super Bowl includes sections on the greatest games, individual performances, and game-changing plays. Fischer explores unique Super Bowl angles as well, including a ranking of The Best Who Never Won and The Best Who Never Lost, along with perspectives from players and fans. He covers the action, the heroes, the strategy, and the records from half a century of championship football.
This celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Americas premier sporting event is an essential addition to any football fans collection.

Cheating is Encouraged: A Hard-Nosed History of the 1970s Raiders
Straight from the mouths of the legends of the Silver and Black, Cheating Is Encouraged recapitulates the many infamous stories from the last team to play outlaw football.
Regardless of whether you loved or hated them, the Oakland Raiders of the 1970s were an amusing cast of outlaws, misfits, and anomalies that made up one of the greatest pro football teams of their era. The Raiders roster consisted of a collection of mavericks and rebels, some with behavioral issues, such as John Tooz Matuszak and Lyle Alzado, as well as castoffs like the aging George Blanda and the sandlot player Otis Sistrunk, who were passed over or disregarded by other NFL teams. To say that this group of outlaws had attitude would be a gross understatement. They were the Oakland Raiders, the Silver and Black, and Al Daviss dream of Just win, baby.
Gridiron characters (such as the Snake, Foo, the Assassin, the Hit Man, Dr. Death, and many others) chronicle the notorious on- and off-the-field exploits, away-game adventures, and the party-hard attitudes that are reflected in the teams intimidating and glorified mix of renegades. Cheating Is Encouraged defines an era that can only be considered the last days of real football played by real men.
Pittsburgh Steelers Glory Days
The Pittsburgh Steelers rank as one of the NFLs truly legendary franchises, and this book, written from the fans perspective, provides readers with unique stories about the players and coaches who took part in many of the greatest and most euphoric victories in the teams history. Among the games covered are Franco Harriss Immaculate Reception that beat the Oakland Raiders in the playoffs, the four Super Bowl and AFC Championship Game victories in the glorious decade of the 1970s, and the incredible 2005 playoff run that was capped by the teams fifth Super Bowl title. Grdnic notably delivers credit to Chuck Noll and acknowledges his remarkable talents in draft selections; taking Hall of Famers from 19691972 and finally in 1974 selecting four Hall of Famers in one draft year. The Pittsburgh Steelers 1974 draft year, to this day, has not yet been surpassed. Among other games reviewed are Bill Cowhers first victory as Steelers head coach in 1992, a stunning overtime win against rival Cleveland Browns in 1976 under rookie quarterback Mike Kruczek and Ben Roethlisbergers first win as a starting quarterback in Miami. This newly revised edition examines the Steelers most recent Super Bowl win in 2009 as well as their agonizing defeat in 2010.
