Circus Catch by Michael Ferrarro

Even in a parallel universe, Cleveland is still the world capital of sporting misery. So, imagine the forlorn city’s surprise when their long-suffering RFC football team is on the receiving end of the ultimate Hail Mary. It’s pure pandemonium in Brunts Stadium with just seconds to play, as the home team is on the brink of beating archrival Pittsburgh to reach the playoffs. But that’s where CIRCUS CATCH takes the strangest bounce of all time.

The outrageous, egomaniacal, yet Born Again wide receiver B-Wack is given credit for what many would call the catch of the century, but he claims it’s an incomplete pass, and his team shouldn’t get credit for the touchdown. This bombastic, media-addicted mercenary then impulsively takes matters into his own magnificent hands. In the process, he turns the game, the city of Cleveland and certain sacrosanct pillars of American life (Christmas, family, country, Reality TV & Fantasy Football) completely upside down.

A fast-paced, timely and scathing satire that’s been described as “Keith Olbermann meets Chuck Klosterman with 20 cc’s of Dave Eggers,” CIRCUS CATCH is a must-read for any sports fan with a sense of humor. Unless you’re from Cleveland.
