Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Sports Spectacular
Uncle John’s team of all-star writers tackled the storied archives for their funniest, weirdest, and most entertaining sports articles ever. And then, to top it off, they added a spectacular bunch of new stories. You don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy these stories of hard-won victory, agonizing defeat, locker room low-jinx, or little-known sports lore. So settle in and read about the origins of football, baseball, basketball, golf, hockey, ping pong, and more; histories of classic games, from poker and pinball to Donkey Kong and Dungeons and Dragons; the science of golf balls, hockey pucks, and Olympic swimmers; sports firsts, lasts, oldests, newests, and weirdests; plus odd bar sports, flagpole-sitting, dumb jocks, mascots gone wild, and much, much more. Divided into short, medium, and long sections, the book is perfect for both quick trips to the bullpen and day-night double-headers.
