Synopses & Reviews
Grantland Quarterly #3 is the latest collection of the best writing from Grantland.com. Remember this winter's most important culture events: the New York Giants' second Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots, the very sudden rise of New York Knicks' guard Jeremy Lin, the death of the ultimate diva Whitney Houston, the sweet spot of NBA nerd fashion, and much more. And in the event that you have forgotten or never learned how to dougie, we have a sheet of stickers with NFL referee Ed Hochuli teaching you how to do so. This might be the best collection yet. You should buy it.
Issue 3 includes writing from:
Kenny Powers (RIP Eastbound and Down!)
Charles P. Pierce
*Plus: a special section devoted to the oral history of "The Malice at the Palace," the infamous Indian Pacers
