Wanna Be A Sports Know-It-All? Bob Tatrn has been telling sports stories all of his adult life. He s mainly been telling them in minutes and seconds since he made his living in the nano-second, stop-watch world of broadcasting. Bob Tatrn s Sports Minutes takes readers on a wild ride through nearly every sport with a crowd of sports personalities as he offers up tales you ll be repeating for years to come: Did you know that... A retired major league baseball pitcher awoke one day to read his obituary in the newspaper. Someone had assumed his identity and had basked in his sunlight. A fugitive from justice was taken into custody when police in attendance at a MLB game, noticed his mug on the giant stadium scoreboard TV on Kiss Cam. NFL running back Mercury Morris sought the help of a witchdoctor when his playing time with the Miami Dolphins began to diminish. A horse jockey, trampled at a race by five horses and presumed dead, was taken to a local morgue only to rise up and return to the race track to ride again.
