Here is what the cover has to say:
In 1972, underdog Taft High challenged their meanest rival Bakersfield to the annual game, hoping for a shot at glory. But when "Butterfingers" Robin Williams dropped the ball instead of making the big play, Taft remained defeated. And star quarterback Kurt Russell has never let him live it down. Now, 13 years later, Williams wants the chance to redeem himself no matter what it takes. His only solution is to play Bakersfield again... With the same team! But for Taft, getting into shape couldn't be tougher! A hilarious film full of heart and charm, The Best Of Times makes good on the American dream. Join the team that wants to win for all the right reasons!
