Enjoyed it...loved the different facts

I've always been a sports fan and Frank went in to capture some trivia that I hadn't heard before. I wish the thinking period between trivia was a little shorter but a few of them did take some thinking. Mike Steele did a good job to kept the narrative the same thought out the book.

My Family Of Five Had Fun With This Audiobook

My family and I sat down for Sunday Dinner and decided to have a listen via our computer while eating. We got most of the questions wrong, which turned into a boatload of laughter as we poked fun at each other for wrong answers. My youngest son, age 16 got the most correct answers. My only complaint is it needs more content and the timer sound is too long in between question and answer. My wife found it quite annoying. However, despite that, overall...great for sports enthusiasts. By the way, the narrator did a great job.

Challenging and Fun!

What a fun sports trivia audiobook! My family started this with me and found the trivia challenging and fun from the start. My father was the most competitive and knew the most answers, but everyone had fun trying to answer the trivia questions (before dad!). I am going to use this in the car on our Thanksgiving trip to Grandma's house this year. The trivia chapters are broken up by sports category, which is great for me because I can answer more football questions in that category than any other. This book is great as a family game, fun car activity, or just enjoyable to listen to the questions and answers in order to learn some sports trivia (and more about the sports, too!). This a fantastic sports trivia audiobook for all sports fans old and new! The narration is great and there is just enough time to rack your brain for the right (or wrong) answers.

So much fun!

I can’t believe I got some right! I like the format and that you hear several seconds tick down so you can think instead of having to rush to an answer. I’ve been an Olympics junkie since I was a kid, so that chapter brought back some memories!

Very fun!

I really enjoyed this audiobook, we listened to it on a car trip and it was just great. I like the fact that is more of an interactive activity rather than just listening to a story. I did it with my cousins and they absolutely loved it. Plus we learnt some great facts that we did not know about even though we are all sports fan. I recommend !

Fun trivia for sports fan car rides

Long time sports fan, gott this for myself for work commutes, so much fun. Helped me deepen my knowledge around baseball which I was looking to brush up on, and I'm still getting everything down, will definitely require a few more listens!

Great book for newbies too

A Lot of my friends follow sports and have get togethers for the super bowl and other such important events in the sports world. As you can already tell it's not really my thing, but getting this book was like a cheat sheet for sports and sports trivia. I was able to spend time learning all kinds of cool details on different players and games and at least be able to hold a conversation with the die-hard sports gang. Great book easy and fun to read. Tons of interesting sports trivia.

All I do is Win, Win, Win!

So Sunday afternoon football has ended. Me and the Boys have had our fill of beer and those little Pepito's pizzas (yum), and we decide that we don't want the day to end. We spent the next hour playing this sports trivia game (book?). Man did we have fun! Most importantly I won over and over. Who was the first running back to run for 100 career touchdowns? (spoiler alert!): Jim Brown. I got that one. Who was the first -round NFL draft pick in 1961? Da Bears. Mike Ditka. (got that one too!). And what Olympic athlete won in six straight Olympic summer games? Tim Rhodes (yup, I nailed that one too!)

The nice thing about this trivia game (book?) was that you really had to think about the answers. They were not just "gimmes." Recommend for anyone who likes trivia and sports.

Well Done!

Really enjoyed this one, while the family and I drove back from Florida we threw this book on and it had everyone doing their absolute best to guess questions even from era's we weren't born in! When one of us would get something right I couldn't begin to describe the excitement that resonated throughout the car! Excited to share this with other family and friends when we have game night!

For all competitive sports enthusiasts

Even though I'm not a sports fan, I enjoyed hearing about all these incredible feats of athletes at the top of their game. I remembered the tragic end of Lou Gehrig, what a perfect game in baseball is and who was the first QB to throw more than 200 touchdown passes.

Whether it's baseball, basketball or football, fervent sports fans will find statistics that are out of the ordinary and will be fun to remember.

I recommend it!

Call me Trivia!!

This is a great ice breaker! This book covers what I consider the BIG sports and will have folks in awe of your sports knowledge. I have a sister “deep” into football and this book has some great facts to stump her with.

Enjoyable for Anyone!

I’m not very sports savvy, but I was still able to find this book very enjoyable. Wether you’re listening solo, with friends, or with family you will find this audio book to be challenging and fun. I was surprised by just how much I knew about sports. And even more surprised by how much I learned from this Audiobook. I will definitely be using this Audiobook again, in the near future.

It Was A Family Affair...

After my family and I sat down to eat dinner, I decided to play the audiobook out loud from one of our laptops. My family had no interest in the audiobook whatsoever, but I still decided to play it out loud as we ate. What my family thought would be some boring trivia sports questions, ended up being a boatload of fun, entertainment, and laughter for my family of five. Yes, it was a family affair…with my wife and children poking fun at me for getting almost all of the answers wrong. Then to make matters worse, my 16 year old son answered much more of the questions correctly than I did…lol! I didn’t expect that a sports trivia baseball, basketball, American football, and Olympic history facts audiobook would turn out to be so much fun. Laughter is definitely good medicine and we really needed that. My only complaint is that it could use some more content and my wife found the lengthy ticking sound of the timer between the questions and answers to be quite annoying. Despite that, I highly recommend this audiobook.

Light hearted fun!

Who doesn't love a bit of trivia from time to time. We recently went on a trip as a family and needed something to occupy the 6 hour drive with. This was excellent fun and a good level of difficulty.

What a fun book!

This is a very fun and engaging book -- it even brought my husband up from his work and we played together and had a real laugh. I enjoyed hearing the names of people I had heard about in childhood and it brought back memories of my family following sports. Additionally, the narration is terrific - I felt like I was listening to a sports announcer.

This brought back memories

I use to go and play trivia in this bar with friends, and listening to this brought back great memories. I had forgotten how much fun this was, My nephew was bragging he could probably answer all of the football questions and he did fairly well, but he still missed several. lol. Listening to the last was my favorite though, and the Olympic part were the hardest for me. I am glad I got this and will play along with others again.
