Overview


Close to forty years after Pete Rozelle first had this crazy dream of pitting football’s two best teams against each other, the Super Bowl has become a uniquely American holiday. It combines food, commercials, pageantry, and, oh yeah, football. From the first Super Bowl of Green Bay versus Kansas City to Super Bowl XXXVIII between Carolina and New England, The Super Bowl’s Most Wanted™ covers it all! With dozens of top-ten lists packed full of trivia, you’ll get tales of heroics, failures, rugged runners, laughable blunders, announcers, stadiums, awesome commercials, and even the lowly kicker, all but ignored unless he’s a hero or a goat. After his 49ers shellacked the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV, Bubba Paris remarked, “It got to a point where, being a Christian and being a person who loves people, I actually felt sorry for the Broncos.” Players are understandably tight for momentous games, but not this tight: Dallas and Baltimore combined for a whopping eleven turnovers in Super Bowl V. Amazingly, the Buffalo Bills almost matched them single-handedly in Super Bowl XXVII, turning the ball over nine times to the Cowboys. You’ll read about legendary partiers and how they spent Super Bowl Eve, meet run-of-the-mill players whose one shining moment came in the Super Bowl, find out who used Super Bowl success as a springboard to Hollywood, and relive the final heroics of top stars who rode off into the sunset after the big game. The Super Bowl’s Most Wanted™ has all this and so much more from professional football’s biggest game.
