Sunday is for Football

I tried to think of something to open up the football season the way I did with baseball but I came up empty.

Here's a list of football books, I did back in 2008. I can't believe I picked the Chargers to go to the Superbowl. They're awful in the playoffs.

I wanted to highlight a few titles, that I loved. Please don't sleep on any of them, they're all very good and go beyond the field.

Knights of Hill Country by Tim Tharp. my review

Jim Thorpe Original All - American by Joesph Bruchac - my review

Deadline by Chris Crutcher - Is isn't about football but it has some great football in it.

Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

Raiders Night by Robert Lipsyte

And released this week

Payback Time by Carl Deuker my review

Football season is my least favorite time. My hubby spends all of Sunday afternoon watching the games. I'll check out some of those books. Maybe it will help me be more in tune with this time of year.

Doret, you are one insane sports fanatic! :--) We sure do benefit from your combined love of sports and books, but I wouldn't want to have to live with you and try to get a chance with the remote to watch something else!!!! LOL

Jeannine football is fun to watch wants you get the hang of it.

Jill- I've been known to flip from a game to a lifetime movie like it ain't no thing. Though that was back in the day when lifetime movies were good.
