Glow Pucks and 10-Cent Beer: The 101 Worst Ideas in Sports History
Glow Pucks and 10-Cent Beer: The 101 Worst Ideas in Sports History chronicles sports' most infamous events, ill-fated ideas and unfortunate trends. Glow Pucks and 10-Cent Beer offers hilarious essays and well-researched arguments that tackle silly sports phenomena (Bad Idea #101. Hulk Hogan, Thespian: "Eat your heart out, Meryl Streep!") while challenging some of the sports world's most revered traditions (Bad Idea #5 The Bronze Medal: "A trinket whose only purpose is to remind athletes that they're closer to fourth place than they are to first place."). Rating his entries according to how egregious, embarrassing and damaging the events were to the parties involved; how idiotic the factors were behind their failures; and above all else, whether they were a direct insult to the heritage of the sports themselves, Wyshynski aims to spark debate about the most controversial moments and issues in sports history.
