Andy Roddick Beat Me With A Frying Pan

andyfryingpan.jpgOn the way into work this morning, Todd Gallagher, an ex EPSN writer, was talking about his book “Andy Roddick Beat Me With A Frying Pan”. It’s a book with some of the funniest hypothetical sports questions that Todd tries to find the answers to. They are the kinds of questions that everyone has asked when talking with a group of friends. For instance:

– Can a morbidly obese man shut out an NHL team if he played goalie?

– Would a team with nothing but midgets be the best offense in baseball?

– Could the worst pitcher in baseball hit better than the average guy.

– Could Andy Roddick beat the average guy in tennis only using a frying pan?

– Could an average guy start in the WNBA?

– Would sumo wrestlers make great NFL linemen?

– How good are pro golfers at miniature golf?

– Do pro athletes really play drunk or high?

– How would a fan hit against a major league pitcher?

To hear some of the answers and their explanation is sometimes even funnier than the question. The coolest part about the book is that he actually puts these questions to the test in the best way possible. One of the funniest things in the interview was when Todd was talking to this pro dart player who had no ego what so ever. He explained to Todd that he could take the average guy who likes to play darts and train him to play on a professional level in a month. Which answers the question, are some pros only good because they practice non stop or is it because they have a natural ability improved by practice? This book is definitely on my to read list.

  1. I want to see some of the answers to these questions. But I know that a morbidly obese man couldn’t shut out an NHL team. Those guys are too good they’ll find a way to get the puck in.
