Two stud hosses from Ft.Worth, having starred at TCU, find themselves together in NYC and playing for the football Giants. They've got themselves a little old date in LaLaLand with the...Jets in what you call your Super Bowl. Puckett tells the story (in first person) of the days leading up to the game by taking a small tape recorder wherever he goes. Along with his counterpart, one Marvin "Shake" Tiller, and the gorgeous and talented Barbara Jane Bookman, Puckett waxes poetic on everything under the sun, particularly the hypocrisy associated with such an event as the Super Bowl in LA. It's lewd, raunchy, politically incorrect, and about as funny a read as you'll ever find...
I've read most of Dan Jenkins' books, and although "Dead Solid Perfect" is my favorite, "Semi-Tough" was my first love. I first read it in high-school, too. Although I never did have any illusions that I was anything like Barbara Jane (yes, I am female!) we all have to have something to aim for, don't we?!? Mr. Jenkins, long may you wave.
