From the Publisher

At age ninety-two, the last surviving player from Super Bowl XXI in 1987, Carl decides to win the New York Marathon or die trying.

And that’s exactly what he does. In front of the world’s cameras, he crashes to the ground, finished. But his hat doesn’t stay finished. Runner after runner picks it up and relays it to the front-runners, where a battle of epic proportion ensues to get Carl’s hat across the finish line first.

It’s a tale that will warm your heart while it hurts your knees and rips out your lungs. But it proves that, even in a future largely devoid of honor, it still remains among the world-class elite runners who do the impossible every time they take the field.

Includes an excerpt from “Anasazi Runner: a novel of identity and speed,” by Jeff Posey.

The Patriots are well-acquainted with this championship ritual, having won five Super Bowls in the last sixteen years. But their come-from-behind win over the Atlanta Falcons — after being down 25 points — was every bit as unlikely as Trump's own upset victory three months earlier. The president himself left a watch party at his Florida golf club during the Super Bowl, after New England fell b

Playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show: An Unpaid Internship?

There are many ways in which the Super Bowl halftime show is quite different from an ordinary concert: It’s once a year, it’s wedged in the middle of the most-watched sports event in America, and the NFL picks who gets to perform. Another key difference is that, whether the audience knows it or not, the halftime performer doesn’t get paid. “I'm sure they want to be compensated, but in terms of events here in America, the Super Bowl halftime show is one of the best for an artist from a branding perspective,” says Derek Rucker, a professor of marketing at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Managem

What’s Your One Shining Moment?

“I went to high school in New York City and grew up a huge Knicks fan. We played in a basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden—a dream come true. I wanted to make a splash. I was 0 for 12 with 4 or 5 air balls and then just bricks.” Don Cornwell Partner, PJT Partners Inc. “My senior year at Dartmouth, where I played goalie in soccer, we won the Ivy League title and qualified for the NCAA tournament. We made it to the final eight and played against Rutgers. On their corner kick, instead of trying to punch the ball away, I tried to catch it. It knocked on someone’s head, fell at their f
