9780304366842: The Big Book of Sports Insults: 1001 Quips & Quotes

How many ways can journalists describe Mike Tyson's infamous ear-munching moment? Try these: Pay Per Chew. From Champ to Chomp. Lobe Blow for Boxing. Every "sound bite" here is entirely unsporting--and that's exactly why sports lovers will enjoy these 1001 hilariously poisonous insults. Modeled on the highly successful Big Book of Filth and E-Tales compilations, this delicious volume contains the very best put downs ever leveled at the world's top athletes, past and present. National Lampoon hit a hole in one, calling golf "not so much a sport as an insult to lawns." About football, George Will commented: "Football combines the two worst features of America life: it is violence punctuated by committee meetings." From writers to TV personalities, managers to players, everyone's got something wonderfully nasty to say.
