Publisher's Summary

Humor or horror? You decide, as sports atheist Walter Witty renders a play-by-play account of America's own most radical of religions: sports obsessions. From the hundred million plus salaries of sports gods to the games played by politicians and televangelists, Witty whistles and points at both Icons and Emperors prancing in their skivvies. Whatever their faith, he has choice words for them and their stories, while telling his own - including a Lossary of Terms. Sure to enrage or delight, The Umpire Has No Clothes is for anyone wanting to escape their crumb-strewn couch, or for the spouse who hopes they might.

GREAT NARRATION, ESPECIALLY ON THE LIE DETECTOR STORY. A "MUST LISTEN" FOR ANYONE AMUSED BY THE FANATICISM OF SPORTS FANS.

Thought provoking in a strange way

Where does The Umpire Has No Clothes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Decent. It isn't the greatest of satire but it holds it's own. It does point out the ludicrous love obsession of America with sports in general in a humorous but poignant way.


Would you be willing to try another book from Walter Witty? Why or why not?

Probably. If it was on a topic I was interested in.


If you could give The Umpire Has No Clothes a new subtitle, what would it be?

Exposing the Shame of America's Addiction to Watching Men in Tight Pants Run Around Chasing a Ball
