by David, Bruce

The Funniest People in Sports and Neighborhoods 500 Anecdotes Synopsis

This book contains such anecdotes as these: 1) Bob Zuppke coached the football Illini for years. In a discussion of football rules, someone described a play and asked whether the officials had made the right call. Before answering, however, Mr. Zuppke asked, Which team made the foul--Illinois or the other one? 2) At a Westminster Dog Show in Madison Square Garden, a woman was selling an expensive coat made for dogs. Saying We want her dog to look as smart as madame, the saleslady held up a pink cocktail coat made out of embroidered silk with a lining of mohair. Sportswriter Robert Lipsyte asked her, When would a dog wear that? The saleslady replied, After five o'clock. 3) Shannon Martin was six years old when she won an age-12-and-under roping contest, for which she was written up in the Roping Sports News. Because she hadn't learned to read yet, she kept saying to her father, Come on, Dad. Read it again.
