Weird Sportsby Michael Teitelbaum
Baseball, football, and soccer get all the attention, but now it's time for the weird sports to take over! Toss a mullet, take an extreme unicycle ride, race a bed (or a lawnmower or a toilet), and roll with some cheese! Special sections show sports around the world, including chess boxing and elephant soccer, as well as the World Eskimo-Indian Olympics. Every sports fan will find something to love in these tales of athletes with a different point of view.
