3.5/5 - A hilarious read. I have to admit that my own sports (rock climbing and ultimate) are pretty stupid, so how could I not love other stupid sports? Highlights include having a chapter on baseball, which cracked me up, as well as another chapter on sports in New Zealand in general! This book doesn't pretend to be anything it's not, and does a great job hitting its target. In the end, I have to agree with the author - it's a pretty fantastic thing to see someone be passionate about something they love, even if it is pretty stupid to the rest of the world.
