"I have always enjoyed volumes like this. Simply, they are fun to peruse. I often just pick pages at random, to see what treat might be there. Just so, this time around.

The book is divided by sport--from baseball and pro football to tennis and golf and soccer to horse racing, track and field and the full gamut of sports. For each events of the year are described. Also appearing in many instances are all-time records (such as World Series records--with the teams of Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, et al. dominating many of the hitting records).

Some of my random "hits." World Series career batting records (minimum of 40 at bats): Games--Yogi Berra (75); Batting average--David Ortiz (.455); Home runs--Mickey Mantle (18); RBIs--Mickey Mantle (40); Stolen bases--Lou Brock (14) and so on.

AFC (football) team statistics for 2013. Among the statistics--individual scoring leaders per team, passing statistics for QBs, rushing statistics, and on. One can compare teams within the AFC to see how your favorite players stack up against players from other teams.

On pages 219 and 220--all time leaders in the top division of NCAA football. Rushing--most yards gained in a career is Ron Dayne (over 6,000 yards); Passing--Most yards gained-Case Keenum (over 19,000 yards); Most yards rushing in a season--Barry Sanders (over 2600 yards).

National Hockey League records are displayed. Amazing to see how Wayne Gretzky so dominates scoring records (with Mario Lemieux impressing as well).

Overall, a lot of fun to look at this on a day off from work.
