Dodge Connolly is a charming, brash football hero. He is determined to guide his team from bar brawls to packed stadiums. But after the players lose their sponsor and the entire league faces certain collapse, Dodge convinces a college football star to join his team. Dodge hopes his latest move will help the struggling sport finally capture the country's attention. Added to the team is Carter Rutherford, America's favorite son. Carter has dashing good looks and unparalleled speed on the field, he is a golden-boy war hero of WWI. Carter appears to be too good to be true, and Lexie Littleton aims to prove that's the case. Lexie is a spitfire newswoman who suspects there are holes in Carter's war story. While she digs, the two teammates start to become serious off-field rivals for her fickle affections. As the new game of pro-football becomes less like the freewheeling sport he knew and loved, Dodge must both fight to keep his guys together and to get the girl of his dreams.

Raymond "Stick" Hart is happily married to a Cajun firecracker Dannie, has a rambunctious son, and is getting by writing smart-mouthed greeting cards. Best of all nothing has changed at Ponky, the worst golf course in America. Then one day the owner announces he's retiring to a nudist camp in Florida and selling the club to the Mayflower Club next door, a bastion of blue-blood snobbery that plans to pave Ponky over. Worse, its membership includes Stick's hated father. Who promptly drops dead. His friend Two Down looses $12,000 to a golf hustler and his wife threatens to cut him off. Then a practical joke makes Dannie believe that Stick's been stepping out with the gorgeous new clubhouse girl, the eye-popping Kelly, and he's soon living on the forty-year-old couch in the Ponky clubhouse. Luckily, Stick has a solution to all his problems. He'll qualify for the British Open.

Sports from hell [my search for the world's dumbest competition by Rick Reilly ( Recording )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 264 libraries worldwide
"What is the stupidest sport in the world? Not content to pontificate from the sidelines, Rick Reilly set out on a global journey--with stops in Australia, New Zealand, Finland, Denmark, England, and even a maximum security prison in Angola, Louisiana--to discover the answer to this question nobody else really saw the need to ask. From the brain-and-body-taxing sport of Chess Boxing, to the mind war that is the Rock-Paper-Scissors Championship, to the underground world of illegal Jart Throwing, to way too much nudity, Reilly--in his valiant quest--subjected himself to both bodily danger and abject humiliation (or, in the case of Ferret Legging, both). These F-list sports offer their participants a chance to earn a few bucks and achieve the eternal glory that is winning--even when the victory in question might strike some as pointless, like the ability to sit in an oven-hot room for the longest time in the World Sauna Championships. These sports push the body--and human idiocy--to the outermost limits, but one thing is for sure: Sports from Hell is laugh-out-loud hilarious and will deliver plenty of unabashed fun" -- from publisher's web site.
