The Bounty Bowl was the name given to two notorious NFL games held in 1989 between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. The first, the 1989 Thanksgiving Classic game in Dallas was most noted for allegations that the Eagles put a $200 bounty on Cowboys kicker Luis Zendejas, cut by Philadelphia earlier that season. The second was a highly touted rematch between the two teams that was held two weeks later in Philadelphia, noted for the rowdy behavior of fans attending the game. Philadelphia, already heavily favored to win both games due to the Cowboys having an extremely poor season that year, swept the series.

—Vladimir Nabokov (18991977)
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep. The more I give to thee
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
