I love US Sports and found myself needing something to scratch that itch more. In enters this book to my review pile. Do you need your US Sports stats itch scratching? Intrigued? Read on….
This is the perfect pick up and read book for those short moments. It is full of facts, quirky moments and those heart-warming stories that will make you read one more section.
“The Average Joe’s Super Sports Almanac will delight fans of all ages and makes a great gift for the sports buff in your life – whether superfan or average Joe.”
It will aim to throw your head in a loop with its weirder facts about some of your favourite teams and players.
Stats Like –
- Chicago Bears were originally know as the Staleys
- Houston Astros Infielder Julio Gotay played every game with a cheese sandwich in his back pocket.
- Kevin Durant accepting his NBA MVP Award in 2014, told the crowd his mother is the real MVP.
And that is the stats that were found on the press release page (we could get away with putting here), reading the book more and more, you find more gems. Without spoiling it, I loved the shorter sections like the Julia Hawkins story and the stats on picking a perfect NCAA bracket.
The book is full of short stories, sometimes not even a page long. This is ideal for a pick up and read a little (ideal to read on the loo/toilet) – to then go back to it book. Quick facts and figures to pass to your friends and family.
