Think soccer, baseball, basketball, and hockey are the only options in the world of sports? Think again! Weird Zone: Sports uncovers the "other" sports, from the local and hidden to the strange, bizarre, and downright crazy. 

Playing football with over 200 people per team? (Just imagine the pile-up!) Chasing a giant wheel of cheese down an English hillside? Wrestling with your toes? This book contains all the funny facts about these sports — and many, many more!

With science and history sidebars, pop quizzes, and tons of amazing photographs and hilarious illustrations, Weird Zone: Sports is the ultimate addition to every sports addict's library.
