Kick a home run through the goal posts of life in this jock-ular collection of old stories and new from the Bathroom Reader sports pages!

Uncle John’s Sports Shorts lets you relive the sporting world’s most incredible moments! From ancient stick-and-ball games to modern-day sports deals and the physics of football, it’s all in here: great finishes, embarrassing losses, inside secrets, bizarre pastimes, and disastrous “Dumb Jocks” quotes—including this bewildering gem from the NFL’s Erik Ainge about Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez: “He’s stupid while being stupid. You have to be smart while being stupid, and he’s dumb while being dumb.” Don’t even try to comprehend that, just read about what else you’ll find in Sports Shorts:


• Bowling for humans
• Reasons you should never mix hipsters, kickball, and alcohol
• The hidden power of Olympic swimming champion Mark Spitz’s mustache
• The origins of surfing, instant replay, ESPN, March Madness, cricket, stock car racing, and more
• How the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders changed the way America watches sports
• The biggest conspiracy theories in pro sports, the most shocking uses and abuses of the Stanley Cup, and the most hellish holes in golf

• Baseball records that will never be broken
• When soccer moms go ballistic

And much, much more!
