Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger) is the motto of the International Olympic Committee. After listening to Les Woodland's The Olympics' 50 Craziest Stories the listener might wonder if the motto should be Sillier, Loonier, Crazier. There is the gentle rower who was winning his race when he stopped his scull to avoid scattering a mother duck and her ducklings - we'll let you listen to the book to find out how he did - and the American socialites who showed up for a golf game in Paris and accidentally ended up in the Olympic golf contest. There was so much confusion that year they never learned one of them had become Olympic champion. Oh, and the men's Olympic golf champion had actually journeyed to Paris to play tennis. Shooting live pigeons was an event in the 1900 Olympics, but there's no mention today of the competition out of embarrassment over the 300 dead and maimed birds that revulsed the spectators. We can't forget the Jamaican bobsled team nor the Russian KGB colonel who rigged the scoring in fencing and managed to create an international incident. They are all in The Olympics' 50 Craziest Stories, along with dozens more athletes who managed to attain fame they would rather not have earned. In addition to the 50 stories of competitors behaving badly, or at least oddly, Les Woodland has sprinkled collections of interesting and sometimes improbable Olympics facts throughout, making The Olympics' 50 Craziest Stories fun from cover to cover. As the author of 26 books, Les Woodland knows how to tell a story and here he's in fine form. Join him in his trip to the crazy side of sports. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David L. Stanley.

YES, IT'S EUROVISION TIME AGAIN! THE PERFECT GIFT FOR THE EUROVISION FAN IN YOUR LIFE!For 60 years the Eurovision Song Contest has existed in a parallel universe where a song about the construction of a hydro-electric power station is considered cutting-edge pop, where half a dozen warbling Russian grandmothers are considered Saturday night entertainment, where a tune repeating the word 'la' 138 times is considered a winner, and where Australia is considered part of EuropeDuring those sixty years we have witnessed scandals: in 1957, Denmark's Birthe Wilke and Gustav Winckler enjoyed an outrageously long 13-second kiss because the stage manager forgot to say 'cut' during the live broadcast. We have witnessed national outrage: the 1976 Greek entry was a savage indictment of Turkish foreign policy in Cyprus. But most have all we have witnessed silly costumes, terrible lyrics and performers as diverse as Celine Dion and Dustin the Turkey.This book chronicles the 100 craziest moments in the history of Eurovision - the drag acts, the bad acts, the nul points heroes and the night in Luxembourg when the floor manager warned the audience not to stand up while they applauded because they might be shot by security forces. It captures some of the magic from this yearly event that continues to beguile and bemuse in equal measure.

In the fallout of the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was made to step down. To right the ship, the DNC turned to a legendary democratic hand: Donna Brazile. As chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign, Brazile had a front-row seat to the wildest, craziest, and most disturbing presidential race in American history. She was called to take over a party riven by scandal and allegations of corruption, and then thrust into the international spotlight after the DNC email system was hacked by the Russians, a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence a presidential election. Seeking to balance the interest of a bitterly divided party while waging war against the Trump Republicans, Brazile was often a lonely warrior. Equal parts campaign thriller, political memoir, and vision for the future of the Democratic Party, Brazile's book will be the first to take readers inside the inner workings 2016 election from someone who saw calamity befall her party - and the nation - first hand. Among the book's many revelations: · THE REPLACEMENT. After Hillary Clinton shocking fainting episode at the 9/11 commemoration and her subsequent effort to downplay serious health issues, Brazile came up with a plan to replace her with a 'dream team' ticket. · BERNIE PARANOIA WAS RIGHT. Bernie and his team were correct in their longstanding criticism of the DNC under Debbie Wasserman Schultz: the Clinton team had stacked the deck against them by staffing the DNC with Clinton loyalists. · DRAMA OBAMA. Brazile was constantly stunned by the President's and his team's unwillingness to go all-in for HRC. · CNN'S POLITICS-AS-ENTERTAINMENT WORLDVIEW. Inside the real story of Brazile's departure from CNN and Jeff Zucker's attempt to get her to lie in order to keep her job. INSIDE THE CAMPAIGN DEBACLE: Clinton had the votes, but not the strategy to win. Brazile will explain how we had a candidate with a ghost haunting her that could not be shaken: her history as a presidential loser.

From 1985 to 1992, The Baseball Hall of Shame series chronicled more than 100 years of baseball goofs and gaffes, selling more than 700,000 copies. Now, the authors of the most offbeat baseball books ever written are back, featuring their looniest lineup of classic stories and inducting their first new class of Hall of Shamers in twenty years. Bruce Nash and Allan Zullo cover everything from the battiest batters and craziest fielding fiascoes to the dumbest ballpark promotions and screwiest fan behavior. Hall of Shamers include outfielder Lou 'The Mad Russian' Novikoff, who insisted his wife taunt him from the stands because it made him a better hitter... Pitcher Burleigh Grimes, who was so mean that he threw a beanball at the on-deck hitter... Outfielder Ping Bodie, who out-ate Percy the ostrich for the spaghetti-eating championship of the world... and Babe Ruth, who wore ladies' silk stockings for good luck. Among the new inductees are Ken Griffey Jr., who put a cow in manager Lou Piniella's office to pay off a steak dinner bet... Manny Ramirez, who abandoned left field to go to the bathroom during a game... and David 'Big Papi' Ortiz, whose underwear was smeared with peanut butter as payback for the pranks he pulled on teammates. Filled with more than 200 stories and packed with photos, The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Blooperstown is the most hilarious homage to the national pastime ever assembled, and a fitting testament to the Hall's motto: 'Fame and shame are part of the game.'
