Veteran sportswriter Rick Reilly scours the globe in search of the dumbest sport. That’s interesting enough, but he also participates in most of them, and that’s where the fun is. He sticks a ferret down his pants, heats himself in a sauna, tries to play Jarts, hikes his way through a three-mile golf hole, competes in competitive rock-paper-scissors games, and more. Narrator Mike Chamberlain’s tone fits the author’s writing style: It’s incredulous and irreverent, and you can almost hear a chuckle in his voice. This fun look at “athletes” who rarely get any attention is enhanced by Reilly’s creative similes and helped along by Chamberlain’s deft reading.
