Sport is supposed to be a serious business, yet few activities are more likely to provide a chuckle or three.No one captures this juxtaposition better than David Boon, a man who, for many people, has come to epitomise the 'great Aussie bloke'.Fans somehow sense that Boonie is a man who likes a joke. And now, in David Boon's Big Book of Great Sporting Jokes, he provides a bumper collection of cracks, true stories and one-liners, not just from cricket but across all sports.
This is a book you'll want to share with your friends - not by handing them a copy, but by retelling some of Boonie's favourites at the ground, propping up the bar or around the barbie. The trick will be to do so using his deadpan style, with maybe just a hint of a grin, while your mates are having a good old belly laugh and asking for some more.
