Fan-Tastic Sporting Stories free pdf From the founder of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award For some fans, a ringside seat just isn't close enough to the action - Stretching from the benign to the malign, from the entertaining to the insane, and from the sublime to the ridiculous, this compelling compendium contains over 300 true tales of fanatical fans who stole the spotlight from their sporting heroes. This is the good, the bad and the ugly side of spectator intervention - from streakers to rioters, and beyond. We've all felt the thrill of cheering on our sporting heroes, but there's a fine line between the mere fan and the true fanatic - and this absorbing new book from Graham Sharpe well and truly crosses it. With its weird and wild tales of fan participation, Fan-tastic Sporting Stories! is essential reading for fans of any and every sport. Whatever your team, whatever your game, you won't help but find this collection absolutely fan-tastic!

About Graham Sharpe

Graham Sharpe has been a fan of various sports - particularly football and horse racing - for many years, idolising racehorses Golden Miller, Sea Pigeon and Youmzain and football teams Luton Town, Wealdstone and Hatch End. He has done his best to avoid becoming part of the action whilst spectating, but very much enjoys seeing others make fools of themselves in such a manner. Sharpe is Media Relations Director for the bookmakers William Hill, for whom he has worked for over forty years. He co-founded the prestigious William Hill Sports Book of the Year - but in the process ensured none of his books could ever win the award! He has written thirty books about various subjects, including match fixing, Frankie Dettori, weird gambling, Screaming Lord Sutch and bizarre football.
