The editors of Sports Illustrated has put out a book called “Super Bowl Gold: 50 Years of the Big Game”. It’s everything you have come to expect from Sports Illustrated, but in a fantastically laid-out book.
If you’re a fan of the NFL and want to fondly remember some of the best pictures and detailed descriptions from the Big Game over the years, this is a perfect book to sit on your coffee table.
I wouldn’t necessarily call this a coffee table book, since it would easily fit on one’s bookshelf, unlike other gaudy coffee table books. It just belongs in a place where you can easily open and enjoy it while eating your morning cereal or drinking a beer during the pregame show.
I specifically love Super Bowl XLI since it is the only time my favorite team, the Indianapolis Colts, won the Super Bowl in my lifetime. The pictures in this book from that game bring back all the feelings I had while screaming at the television in my apartment. The stories from the game are also fun to read since I didn’t have a subscription to Sports Illustrated at that time.
You can pick up “Super Bowl Gold: 50 Years of the Big Game” (U.S. $40.00) on Amazon and everywhere books are sold.
