Chuk Culpepper abandons the NHL, MLB, et al in search of a new sporting pursuit to revive a flagging enthusiasm for his trade. He does so with a dogged intention to see the funny side and succeeds for a s long as the reader buys into his sense of humour. This reader was eventually worn down by the relentlessness before the end, but it was fun for quite a while.

The parallels that exist between British and American sport - and those that don't - are interestingly explored. Readers who don't know much about the US scene may struggle.

Picked up a copy of this book when I was in the States, a country whose national press only offer a few paragraphs about 'soccer' buried underneath the reams and reams of college sports results.
The book is a bit like Bill Bryson explores football and is a bumbling voyage of discovery by a Yank hack whose love for sport is born again in the bosom of our beautiful game. Funny, especially the self-depreciation. And oh, that Blue Bear!
