ESPN's Kenny Mayne With A New Book

An Incomplete and Inaccurate History of Sport: . . .and Other Random Thoughts from Childhood to Fatherhood

From Publishers Weekly:

Mayne, known for his sarcasm on ESPN's SportsCenter, submits in his debut a tongue-in-cheek sports encyclopedia, featuring such entries as rock throwing and Wiffle ball, along with facts mixed with dubious statements. For example, dodgeball ends “when the PE teacher gets back from hitting on one of the substitutes” and “tackle football is the greatest sport in the world and everyone knows it.” Stories from Mayne's life as a sports-loving kid in Washington State, a quarterback and father to two little girls round out the book.The book's best parts feature Mayne straying from his funnyman persona to reflect on his personal life.
