So, how is everyone enjoying the football season? If you are a Broncos, Patriots, or Colts fan, I’m sure you’re loving life right now. But, if you happen to like the Jets, Redskins, or Tampa Bay, well…baseball season will be here soon! Football Sundays are like a weekly holiday at our home. My family is sad to see the season winding down, but we really enjoy watching the Super Bowl every year.
This year, Super Bowl XLIX (49) will be played on February 1, 2015, at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. This stadium is the home of the Arizona Cardinals, who are also having a good year and have made the playoffs. I’m sure they’d love to make it to the Super Bowl and play at their home field! Just an extra FYI, if you like to watch the halftime show, singer Katy Perry will be the headline act this year.
For those of you who are football fanatics, the library has had some recent additions to our collection that you may be interested in checking out. Football Nation : Four Hundred Years of America’s Game by Susan Reyburn documents the history of football from the colonial days to today's professional and college games. Football Stadiums by Lew Freedman tells the stories of about 150 of the great stadiums across the country that have hosted pro football or college football play. If you are just trying to find more out about the rules of the game, try Football Rules : Simply Stated by A.D. McPhilomy. We also have football movies such as The Blind Side, Draft Day, and Friday Night Lights. Visit your local library branch or check out our on-line catalog at www.adamslibrary.org to browse our complete collection.
