"23 Ways to Get to First Base: The ESPN Uncyclopedia"

It's all there from almost-perfect games in baseball to the not-so-scintillating first 24 hours of ESPN. No day in sports goes by where this book can't help you become King of the Office Water Cooler.

Take the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks ... will their starting line eventually go down in history like the Punch Line in Montreal, the French Connection in Buffalo or the Grind Line in Detroit?

And what about the cup itself? With names like Teemu Selanne to Scott Niedermayer, will the NHL's engraver spell all of them right? Hey, it's not easy as it looks when you aren't typing into a computer will spell check -- just ask the kids who almost won the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Here's a quick peek at what we learned today by flipping through the pages.
