Marv Levy Says His Novel About A Bunch Of Rigged Super Bowls Is Totally Fictional, OK?

Former Buffalo Bills coach Marv Levy has written a forthcoming novel, presumably to ride the sinusoidal arc of American letters back upward.

But there's a wrinkle with this tome, Between the Lies. In this one there are rigged Super Bowls.

The Chicago Sun-Times explains:

This is kind of crazy, but Levy has written a work of ‘‘complete fiction'' - his words - called Between the Lies, in which, among other things, the Super Bowl is rigged.
[...]
‘‘It's exaggerated,'' he insists, looking for all the world like that lawyer or history professor he probably was meant to be.
[...]
‘‘I never have suspected or sensed a whiff of cheating in any of our Super Bowls,'' he says.

Even when Scott Norwood's 47-yard field-goal try sailed wide right as time expired in Super Bowl XXV? Maybe there was a wireless chip or a lead weight on the ball. Or a mouse inside.

‘‘No,'' Levy says.

Come on, man, the people of Buffalo need this. Give them what they want. Just a little bit rigged? One unsavory, leather-jacket-clad character hanging around Norwood's locker? Please?
