Tuesday Morning Quarterback(2001)
Haiku and Other Whimsical Observations to Help You Understand the Modern Game
A non fiction book by Gregg Easterbrook
Based on the increasingly popular weekly football commentary on the e-zine Slate, Tuesday Morning Quarterback showcases the esoteric humor that has made Gregg Easterbrook's column a hit with sports fans on the Internet. By using Zen poetry, Newtonian physics, historical allusions, and other conceits, Easterbrook creates a fresh, ironic commentary to the philosophy of the game. Including mostly original material as well as a handful of classic TMQ commentary from his column, this book, in the wry humorous tradition of Golf in the Kingdom, The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, and O Holy Cow! The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto, is an intriguingly oddball yet right-on-the-money examination of football and its culture.
