a little different than I thought 20 April 2013

instead of being in question and answer format it's set up like a dictionary with vocab words. still a good resource for all sorts of sports fans though.
This is a sports dictionary not a trivia book 8 Feb 2013
By Nick Asendorf - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking to buy a few sports trivia books. The book basically contains hundreds of pages of definitions, terms, and lingo. It is extremely thorough, containing definitions from every sport imaginable (3 pages on Bocce). However, I was looking for a more trivia based book, not a sports dictionary.
