When: Mon., Nov. 25, 7 p.m. 2013
Does the phrase "butt fumble" mean anything to you? If you follow pro football, you probably chuckled through the replay a hundred times last season—New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez running smack into the derriere of one of his offensive linemen and crashing to the ground, losing the ball in the process. Writer Nicholas Dawidoff spent that ignominious year with the Jets, having been given unprecedented access to the team. Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football gives penetrating insight into the ill-fated Sanchez, as well as blustery, foot-fetishist coach Rex Ryan and defensive wizard Darrelle Revis. Dawidoff, who wrote for Sports Illustrated before moving on to wider cultural criticism for the biggest newspapers and magazines you can name, has a knack for seeing the human in the athletic and vice versa. And he makes you laugh, too. —Chris Vitiello
