Some of the facts in this book are insanely hilarious and weird too (in a good way).

Now that I have read this awesome book, I find that I was ignorant of some of the best and funniest trivia!

Now I know what country MYA stands for in the Olympics and that Jason Varitek played in the Little League World Series and a Major League World Series. There is so much information that you never knew you needed to know!

This compilation of well researched sports particulars is a must have for anyone who is a sports fan. A great gift for kids who like sports and like a quick and easy read. I am sending this book with my 15 year old nephew to camp this summer. I am sure he will be sharing the information in this book with all his bunkmates.

This is also going to make a great Father's Day gift.

Whether you know everything about sports or nothing this book is a great addition to your library.

It gives you tons of information about everything you (or those you love) want to know about sports!

It is a great way to play trivia (aka trick) those people who think they know everything about sports and show them they really don't!

Once again Belsky proves he is one of the greatest modern day sports writers!

Fantastic book filled with interesting, fun trivia. I'm not even a huge sports fan, but I couldn't put this book down. Some of the facts in this book are insanely hilarious and weird too (in a good way). If your boyfriend thinks he knows all there is to know about sports, I guarantee after he reads this book, he will be humbled.

The perfect book to give kids who are going to summer camp.

It'll keep them one step ahead of the counselors and their friends throughout the summer!!!

Well done.

Despite the so far unanimous 5 stars by first time reviewers, I found the collection to be slightly less than perfect. Witty and entertaining for sure though!!!

A great book for summer -- fun to read, lots of surprises, nice fresh layout, and full of useful(less) info. I got it for myself, but my son has taken it over and loves stumping me. You may not need to know who's been fooled by the hidden ball trick, the text of Vince Lombardi's famous speech, or the criteria for an Olympic "sport" (always been a mystery to me) -- but it's in there. An all-around refreshing, easy read and great sports resource.
