Broadcast legend and former NFL head coach John Madden was in attendance for his former squad's miserable performance against the Broncos last night, though it seems he wasn't paying much attention to the game. What's his choice of reading material? Hard to tell. But we hope it inspires him to do some writing of his own; I don't know about you, but John Madden's First Book of Football taught loads about the game back when we were too young to suit up. At one point, it was among the most-borrowed books from the children's section of my hometown library. It seems to be out of print, but if you've got a young one in your life used copies can be had for pennies and it really is an excellent tome on basic football strategy.
