As the fan base for professional sports rabidly seeks to score news on the most famous-or most infamous-athletes, reports of outrageous, shocking, and even disturbing behavior from the players have skyrocketed.
Spoiled Sports: Comical and Disturbing Stories of the 21st Century is an entertaining expose of the funniest and most shameful behavior by professional athletes. The stories chronicle professional athletes' most amusing, unusual, undignified, and unethical criminal escapades.
The book, by first-time author and sports fanatic Garret Kolb, features 38 recent accounts of ridiculous and shameful athlete behavior, along with a detailed list of today's 38 worst offenders (the "Ingrate 38"), according to both courts of law and public opinion. A 38-question quiz rounds out the compilation and tests the reader's knowledge of sports players and their on- and off-the-field shenanigans.
Included are such misadventures and mishaps as:
* Green Bay Packer Najeh Davenport is arrested after defecating in the laundry basket of an unsuspecting coed.
* A minor-league baseball game in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, is delayed while Boston Red Sox Manny Ramirez searches the field for his lost diamond earring.
These and dozens of other stories are sure to hit a home run with legions of sports fans.
