BC2012: Monday Morning Quarterback by Peter King

With the Chicago Bears' season over and the NFL playoffs starting, I thought this would be an ideal time for some football reading. King writes the "Monday Morning Quarterback" column on Sports Illustrated's website. This book includes his favorite columns along with new material, mostly of the best/greatest/top ten genre (e.g., top 100 active players, top ten draft choices since the 1970 merger). Also the outside margin of each page has an entertaining tidbit such as a fact, a brief story, a prediction that did or did not pan out, etc. This was a fun, quick read that I found during the Borders bankruptcy sale. I had never read King's column before, but I have started since I finished this book last week. I'm surely not the first new fan King has earned with this book.
