Edmundson, a professor at the University of Virginia, makes a pretty compelling case for one of the most uniquely American pleasures we can think of. He probes past a simple "boys will be boys" explanation for our cultural love of the game, and writes that “football can develop character, stir courage, enhance manliness, and cultivate patriotism, faith, and loyalty.” We believe it! An excellent gift and read.
