Contesting the Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is the annual American rite. Around the country, friends gather together around the television with beer and potato chips and gear up for the game of the season. This text integrates newspaper clips, quotes from players both on and off the field, NFL rules and regulations, photographers' first-person accounts of their experiences, along with photographs and a series of critical essays heading each chapter. A humorous, and at times disturbing, portrait, the book aims to provide a peek at a different side of this enormously popular event.
