1001 STUPID SPORTS QUOTES
Jaw-Dropping, Stupefying, and Amazing Expressions from the World’s Best Athletes
EDITED BY RANDY HOWE
What is it about athletes and their amazing abil- ity to twist and torture the English language? Here is an eminently readable, laugh-out-loud, always entertaining, can’t-put-it-down collection of 1,001 of the most stupefyingly dumb quotes from the world’s best athletes. While they might be at the top of the athletic world, their profound inability to communicate clearly and articulately puts them on the bench.
Randy Howe, athlete and teacher, is author of the four-book Weekend Warrior series, with titles on golf, football, softball, and basketball, pub- lished by the Lyons Press. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and two children.
Highly readable and laugh-out-loud funny quotes from the world’s best athletes
