Schott’s Sporting Gaming and Idling Miscellany
Ben Schott (au)
Here is a miscellanist’s wisdom from the varied worlds of sports, games, & idling. No other sporting book will explain the colors of karate belts; George Orwell’s thoughts on the lottery; the link between crosswords & the devil; the story behind the Nike ‘swoosh’; & why surfing is the ‘Sport of Kings’ (in Hawaii). Which other book will list Letterman’s Top Ten ways to make the Olympics more interesting; the names of athletes who have sported the ‘Got Milk’ mustache; the secrets of Houdini’s Code; & the myriad personalities of the Pac-Man ghosts? Where else will you find an account of Evel Knievel’s broken bones; a detailing of Mike Tyson’s tattoos; the nicknames for classic poker hands; & every sporting ailment? Enjoy this irresistible vol. of odds & ends.
