Review of "LOL Sports: An All-star Collection of Jokes, Quotes & Anecdotes," by Jack Kreismer

 Review of

LOL Sports: An All-star Collection of Jokes, Quotes & Anecdotes, by Jack Kreismer ISBN 9781603870061

Five out of five stars

Mostly chuckles, but still pretty good

 This collection of short sports related tales will amuse all people, even those not dedicated to sports fandom. All types of sports are the subject of the stories, some of which are only incidentally related to a sport. For example, there is the story of a bank robber that disguised himself very well yet had a distinctive NASCAR-themed license plate on his getaway car. There is also the story that appeared featuring a pitcher that threw a fastball 168 mph. It was published on April 1.

 If you are a follower of sports, you will no doubt have heard some of these anecdotes.  For example, there is the classic about Babe Ruth asking for a higher salary than the President of the United States. For after all, “I had a better year than he did.” There is also a top 20 list of Chris Berman’s catchphrases and nicknames for sports stars.

 This is a book designed for those moments when you have a few seconds or perhaps minutes where you need to while away the time by taking your mind elsewhere. Therefore, a bathroom shelf is a good location.
