Clever title. Solid concept. I haven’t read “Super Bowl Monday” yet, but I’m intrigued. Adam Lazarus has taken the nail-biter that was Super Bowl XXV, and wrapped it in the social-political context of the Gulf War, in January 1991. Desert Storm. Whitney Houston’s ‘Star-Spangled Banner’. Saddam Hussein. Scott Norwood. Wide right.
The title, by the way, refers to when American military personnel – halfway around the world – watched the game – early Monday morning.
Props to Lazarus, 29, who also wrote “Chasing Greatness” – about Johnny Miller’s 1973 US Open victory at Oakmont. He is the first SMG interviewee to write for the oft-maligned Bleacher Report. As of today, for BR, Lazarus has written 589 articles (rank 56), and had 4.12 million article reads (rank 18) and 112 comments (rank 7,534).
