'Semi-Tough'
by Dan Jenkins

Though 'Semi-Tough' tells the comedic story of New York Giants halfback Billy Clyde Puckett and his buddies on the eve of the Super Bowl, it might better be understood as a literary descendant of Twain's 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' – a once-in-a-lifetime evocation of an American character, dialect, and way of life.
