Synopses & Reviews
Close to forty years after Pete Rozelle first had this crazy dream of pitting footballs two best teams against each other, the Super Bowl has become a uniquely American holiday. It combines food, commercials, pageantry, and, oh yeah, football. From the first Super Bowl of Green Bay versus Kansas City to Super Bowl XXXVIII between Carolina and New England, The Super Bowls Most Wanted™ covers it all! With dozens of top-ten lists packed full of trivia, youll get tales of heroics, failures, rugged runners, laughable blunders, announcers, stadiums, awesome commercials, and even the lowly kicker, all but ignored unless hes a hero or a goat. After his 49ers shellacked the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV, Bubba Paris remarked, It got to a point where, being a Christian and being a person who loves people, I actually felt sorry for the Broncos.” Players are understandably tight for momentous games, but not this tight: Dallas and Baltimore combined for a whopping eleven turnovers in Super Bowl V. Amazingly, the Buffalo Bills almost matched them single-handedly in Super Bowl XXVII, turning the ball over nine times to the Cowboys. Youll read about legendary partiers and how they spent Super Bowl Eve, meet run-of-the-mill players whose one shining moment came in the Super Bowl, find out who used Super Bowl success as a springboard to Hollywood, and relive the final heroics of top stars who rode off into the sunset after the big game. The Super Bowls Most Wanted™ has all this and so much more from professional footballs biggest game.
Baseball history is brimming with the weird, the bizarre, and the hard to believe. Baseball's Most Wanted chronicles 700 of the most outlandish players, managers, and owners throughout baseball history. Its seventy lists describe in humorous detail baseballs top-ten inept players, strange plays, bad practical jokes, bizarre nicknames, murderers, politicians, Don Juans, unusual contracts, notable nicknames, curses, worst trades, freak injuries, unsolved mysteries, least-known records, and more. Many of these anecdotes have been published here for the first time.
Baseball has so many stars and scrubs, quotables and notables - so many that one book just isnt enough to cover them all. Enter Baseball's Most Wanted II. Starting where Baseball's Most Wanted left off, version 2.0 introduces even more colorful characters, inept fielders and hitters, and forgotten stars as well as all the teams, fans, managers, and even announcers who are a vibrant part of baseballs past, present, and future. Youll read top-ten lists of the best and worst hitters and pitchers, the most unique memorabilia, and the most obsessed fans.
The next in a long line of vaunted Most Wanted books from Potomac.

With a hopping sixty top-ten lists of World Series trivia, youll find all the trivia from the fall classic you can ask for.
Using the highly engaging format of top-ten lists, "Baseball's Most Wanted* Boxed Set" takes an amusing and irreverent look at the national pastime's highs and lows.
