Sports fans should read sports books
Rick Reilly is one of my favorite sports writers and this book does not disappoint. This is a "best of" from his SI articles and they are all very compelling. The only problem is with the narrator. I've never had a problem with a narrator before, but it's obvious this one is not a sports fan by the way he butchers so many of the names of the athletes, especially the eastern Europeans.

I don't know much about sports, but Rick Reilly 's stories appeal to a wide audience. They're funny, moving, heart warming, frustrating (over the idiocy or callousness of others). I was listening to his story about the Seattle Seahawks while making desserts for the 2015 Super bowl party- totally disagreed with that story, but then I live in Seattle. It made me laugh, the parts that didn't make me squirm lol. Totally enjoyable audio book.
