ATLANTA -- Football fans remember Super Bowl XXV as the game where the Buffalo Bills' Scott Norwood attempted a field goal that went wide left.

However, the game is also known as "Super Bowl Monday," as it took place during the Gulf War and thousands of American soldiers were able to watch it on Arabic Standard Time, meaning that they saw the Bills take on the New York Giants early Monday morning.

Atlanta-based sportswriter Adam Lazarus wrote about the epic game in his new book, Super Bowl Monday: From the Persian Gulf to the Shores of West Florida: The New York Giants, the Buffalo Bills, and Super Bowl XXV.

Lazarus will give a talk and sign copies of Super Bowl Monday at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20 at Manuel's Tavern.

This event is free and open to the public.

LOCAL PROFILE: NFL Linebacker Rennie Curran

LILBURN -- Former Brookwood High School football standout, Rennie Curran is patiently waiting for a new jersey. Over the past two years, Curran went from the University of Georgia to LP Field in Nashville and now he's back at home.

 Curran was released shortly after this year's NFL pre-season, despite leading the team in tackles during the pre-season. 

Since being cut, Curran has been training at Catalyst and other gyms to ensure that when he does get a call, he wont miss a step. Curran is pretty confident he'll be wearing someone's jersey soon.
