Sports. It's what drives millions of people to work hard, play hard - and laugh even harder. In this classic collection of athletics-inspired wit, with his unique ability to integrate sports into everyday life, Scheft will take on: * Theft: 'Despite his problems with the law, Allen Iverson jerseys are still flying off the shelves. And they've even sold a couple.' * The Boston Red Sox: 'Just wondering. Do you think for Daylight Savings, Grady Little will set his clocks back four batters?' * Politics: 'Did you catch the Democratic convention? I haven't heard that many empty promises in the Fleet Center since Rick Piti left town.' * Television Cross-promotion: 'At one point I could have sworn I heard Tim McCarver say July 31 was the deadline for Trading Spouses.' With brand new additions and outtakes showcasing Bill's signature humour, THE BEST OF 'THE SHOW' is a look at the world of sports through a truly cracked - and hilarious - lens.
