39. The Countless College Football Scandals (it's really a lot that the topic goes beyond the scope of the book;
the author could have picked University of Miami and SMU Death Penalty)
I am sure that I am missing a lot more in the list, but the author really missed them.
Pros: Describes lots of situations from lots of different sports. Sticks up for those who thinks are wrongly vilified like Bill Buckner and Steve Bartman.
Cons: Juvenile humor and writing. Forgettable. On pages 47 and 48 of the hardcover "...with Hayes there was always a 'but'" is used twice. Doesn't cover league foldings like the XFL.
