Résumé :

"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"--Publisher's web site.
