SUPERBOWL. In the United States more women are battered on the day of the American football championship than on any other day of the year. This should not be taken as a characteristic of football itself...The aim in football is to move the pigskin across the goal line. This positive skill is unfortunately little more than the exotic spice of the game. The central characteristic, involving the football is halted in each play by a physical assault on its carrier. Spectators may well get excited about these repeated demonstrations of basic masculinity. The more excited they become through passive participation, the more their own active manhood may be put into doubt. In the final analysis, a guy's got to prove his own worth by hitting someone himself. Or it may simply be that American women are unbearably slow fetchers of beer.

Randomly picked this book from the library of Ross and Jennifer, while sitting directly in front of the big screen broadcasting the Super Bowl. Freaky.
