Description

Come on in! Don't be shy. Bizarre, hilarious and just plain gross moments are waiting inside Sports Hall of Weird. From yucky bathroom accidents and crows hungry for golf balls, to cursed teams, haunted stadiums and spectacular losers, this Hall's got it all.

Find out why some hockey fans throw an octopus on the ice for good luck. How the hand of God might have decided a soccer game. How a dead guy got drafted ... all this and a lot more is immortalized in Sports Hall of Weird!

Editorial Review

[A] delightful package that will tweak that love of the strange that many young readers develop along with their fondness of sports. And as an added bonus, there's enough obscure material in here to keep adults highly amused as well.
