Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The authors of four Hall of Shame books that highlight strange and embarrassing moments in baseball and football, Nash and Zullo now turn their sights on a variety of other sports. From the world of golf, they recount the time during the 1968 Masters when Tommy Aaron erroneously added a stroke to partner Roberto de Vicenzo's scorecard, resulting in de Vicenzo's loss of the tournament to Bob Goalby. In racing, they note Kevin Cogan's dubious distinction of having caused a four-car crash at the 1982 Indianapolis 500 on the relatively slow 80 mph pace lap. They reach back to 1853 to tell the story of heavyweight boxer ``Yankee'' Sullivan, who was ruled the loser in a bout for failing to answer the call to fightbecause he was busy punching his opponent's second. And they recall the snooze that lineswoman Dorothy Cavis-Brown took during a match at Wimbledon in 1964, to the crowd's amusement. The authors' energetic style and humorous anecdotes will make this a popular title for jocks of all stripes. (October)
