Sports is one of cartoonist John McPherson's favorite topics for lampooning. The frustration inherent in almost any sport makes for a perfect comic target. What's funnier than a flummoxed fisherman, a goaded golfer, a bamboozled batter, or a fumbling football player? Find out in this collection of John's favorites.

Close to Home
debuted in 50 newspapers in 1992 after McPherson left his engineering job to become a full-time cartoonist, and today the comic strip runs in nearly 700 newspapers worldwide. His characters are regularly confronted with everyday dilemmas and their responses are always cleverly unpredictable. The situations are somehow both outlandish yet relatable, and anyone is sure to burst out in laughter at this original e-book collection of all of Close to Home’s boldest and best comical takes on sports.
