Blurbs From the Branch: Get Prepped for the Super Bowl!

super bowlIt’s January.  The holiday season is over and the weather outside leaves something to be desired.  The next big thing to really look forward to (for some of us) is the Super Bowl!  Super Bowl XLVIII (that’s 48 for those of you who are roman numerically challenged, like myself) is happening this year on Sunday, February 2nd.  I am excited that the Seattle Seahawks made it to the big game, as I am sure a lot of you fellow Pacific Northwesterners are.  To whet your appetite for the upcoming game you can request the following books about the Super Bowl from the WCCLS catalog:

-The Billion Dollar Game: Behind the Scenes of the Greatest Day in American Sport: Super Bowl Sunday, by Allen St. John
-The Ultimate Super Bowl Book: a Complete Reference to the Stats, Stars, and Stories Behind Football’s Biggest Game – and Why the Best Team Won, by Bob McGinn
-The Super Bowl: an Official Retrospective, by Ken Leiker and Craig Ellenport
-The NFL Super Bowl Companion: Personal Reflections on America’s Greatest Game, ed. John Wiebusch

Or if you want to learn more about the NFL in general, check out:

-Football’s Greatest Stars, by Allan Maki
-Sports Illustrated: the Football Book, ed. Robert Fleder
-Sports Illustrated Football’s Greatest, ed. Bill Syken
-100 Yards of Glory: the Greatest Moments in NFL History, by Joe Garner

And what is a big sporting event without some delicious eats to go along with it?  I found these football-inspired cookbooks in the WCCLS catalog that you can request and check out:

-The NFL Gameday Cookbook: 150 Recipes to Feed the Hungriest Fan from Preseason to the Super Bowl, by Ray Lampe
-NBC Sunday Night Football Cookbook: 150 Great Family Recipes from America’s Pro Chefs and NFL Players, ed. Liana Krissoff and Leda Scheintaub

Most importantly, remember to have fun this Super Bowl Sunday!  About half of us watching will inevitably be disappointed with the outcome – but there is always next season!
