In pro baseball today, it's good to be a stathead. Managers use stats to decide who should be in the lineup each game, where fielders should be positioned, and when to signal for a bunt or a steal. Players use stats to prepare for games and to get an edge from the first pitch to the final out. And sports reporters rely on data to explain the game. Today's baseball fans, who always want to be in the know, get more out of the action by joining the ranks of the statheads.

Touchdown! These tales from the gridiron will set fans abuzz. Fun, filled with intriguing lore from football history, and engagingly written, they're almost as exciting as the Super Bowl itself. Find out all about the pranksters and one-of-a-kind characters of the game, including Clinton Portis, who liked to wear costumes to his team's weekly press conferences (including a mad scientist wig). Speaking of costumes, hazing the rookies is an integral part of the sport. Just ask Lavelle Hawkins and Cary Williams. They were tied to a goalpost and doused with water, mustard, and ketchup. You'll read about the strange injuries, including Turk Edwards' career-ending injury during the coin toss. You'll cringe reading about how San Francisco 49er Ronnie Lott gave 110%--and his pinky--all for the love of the sport. And you'll bust out laughing when you find out why coach Don Shula once took a shower with an alligator. From the Hardcover edition.

Lara Jeans Liebesleben verlief bisher eher unauffällig. Nicht, dass es ihr an Herz oder Fantasie mangelte. Im Gegenteil, Liebeskummer hatte sie schon oft, und unsterblich verliebt war sie auch schon. Einmal sogar in den Freund ihrer großen Schwester. Klar, dass sie das keinem anvertrauen kann. Außer ihrer Hutschachtel. Denn um sich ihrer Gefühle klar zu werden, schreibt Lara Jean jedes Mal einen Abschieds-Liebesbrief, in dem sie so richtig ihr Herz ausschüttet, und legt ihn dort hinein. Diese fünf Briefe sind ein streng gehütetes Geheimnis. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem auf mysteriöse Weise jeder Brief seinen Empfänger erreicht und Lara Jeans rein imaginäres Liebesleben völlig außer Kontrolle gerät ...
