#5 — The Throwback Special

The Throwback Special by Chris Bachelder
Rating: 3/5
  • A group of men gather annually at a hotel to reenact a gruesome moment in football history. It is a failed play where the quarterback’s leg gets shattered in a million pieces by an opposing team member and it ends the poor guy’s career
  • Being a fan of football is not a prerequisite to understanding or enjoying this book– however, having an interest in or at least amused by the insecurities, disappointments and weird neurotic thoughts of middle-aged men is very much required
