About this title

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author:

Gregg Easterbrook's writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and The New Yorker. He has been a contributing editor at Newsweek and is currently a contributing editor to The Washington Monthly and a senior editor at The New Republic. Easterbrook has published a novel, This Magic Moment (1987), and is noted for his contribution to the ecorealism movement that he made possible with A Moment on the Earth: The Coming Age of Environmental Optimism (1995). Easterbrook's popular Tuesday Morning Quarterback column premiered on Slate.com in September 2000.
