Nick Bakay's Tale of the Tape: Taking on the World of Sports, One Fight at a Time
A collection of the popular ESPN columns and segments in which any two items that come to mind -- such as the Kentucky Derby vs. the Indianapolis 500 or Babe Ruth the player vs. Baby Ruth the candy bar -- are compared in Bakay's irreverent and hilarious style.
Bakay's Tale of the Tape is an institution that occupies a unique niche as ESPN's only comedic department appearing frequently on ESPN.com's Page 2, and each month in ESPN The Magazine, and regularly during ESPN broadcasts. Now for the first time ever in one place, ESPN fans can find all of their favorite "Tales of the Tape" columns, even the classics such as Tiger Woods vs. James Bond, Michael Jackson vs. Mike Tyson, and Indy 500 vs. Kentucky Derby. Fans will be thrilled to learn that the book also includes new tales -- ones too long for print and others too racey for broadcast! Fans will not want to miss this collection.
