Publisher's Summary

In this hour, would televised football be the same without the announcer? They give us background, commentary and insight. Listen as Allen St. John talks about the Fox game coverage strategy that has made the broadcast iconic, and recalls some of the greatest televised moments of Superbowls past.

Next, a lot of pro football players cross-train. They practice the plays and the running, the throws and the tackles. We've even heard stories of pro athletes taking ballet lessons to lighten their footwork. But for NFL MVP Shaun Alexander, training also included chess.

Then, point of attack. Defensive Line. Football and war have a lot in common. Former foreign policy advisor to President Clinton, Michael Mandelbaum, talks conflict and the game.

After that, maybe you're not interested in football. Maybe you prefer your Sundays productive or peaceful. If so, then this interview is for you. Here's Craig Harling on Sunday: A History of the First Day from Babylonia to the Super Bowl.

Following that, for others, football is sacred. In fact, William Dean says the game is part of "American spiritual culture." He talks with Jim Fleming about the way religious beliefs crop up in American popular culture.

And finally, the whole town of Massilon, Ohio, is obsessed with their high school football team, the Tigers. Former player Kenneth Carlson was so crazy for the team, and curious about his town's obsession, he made a documentary about it. He tells Anne Strainchamps about his film, his team and his town. [Broadcast Date: February 6, 2013]
