Uma compilação engraçadinha de fatos aleatórios de esporte. Do meio pro final foi ficando cansativo. Leitura fácil pelo menos.

The book details the weirdest, craziest, and most insane things to happen in the history of sports. There are strange injuries, dumb quotes, and the worst bloopers on the field. There is a whole section devoted to the weird superstitions that players have, from eating the same thing before every game to wearing the same shorts (unwashed). And it's not just limited to pro sports; there are also high school and college stats, as well as international oddities from around the world.

I like how this

You don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy reading this book of sports anecdotes. There are expected idiocies, such as accidentally scoring for the other team, acts of bad sportsmanship, cheating or breaking the law and being caught, freak injury accidents, ridiculous public statements, and stupid stunts, and not just by players or teams. There are also crazy things happening in supposedly reputable events such as the Olympics as well. Nothing meaningful, but definitely entertaining if you want ...more

I liked this book for what it was: something that sat on my toilet for the six weeks since Christmas and gave a laugh a couple of times a day. I'm not being crass. The little bits and pieces of guffaws in sports history really hit the spot and ended up mildly entertaining. ...more

Very American with some British mentions, but I am concerned about how many times teams, cities and even participants are not mentioned. Mediocre and very light attempt at a subject.

I'm not quite halfway through this book as it is not a typical book with a storyline, but a multitude of sports trivia type information. This book is good on a commute, doctor's office visit, anytime you need to occupy your time and not worry about where you are in the book, and yes, this includes the bathroom.
The information I believe to be valid as I'd heard some of it before, and yes, some of it is stupid, actually a lot of it so be prepared to be entertained.
