Overview:Rucks, Pucks and Sliders: More Origins of Peculiar Sporting Lingo - Veteran presenter and football legend Bob Wilson conducts another engaging romp through sport's more colourful terminology. Why is fighting in a square ring with strange gloves on called boxing? Why is it so difficult to stand up in the Pope's living room? And why does the Prince of Wales dislike buckets of nails and people with wet feet? "Rucks, Pucks & Sliders" reveals all as Bob Wilson explores the derivation of another collection of bizarre words and phrases from the wonderfully rich language of sport. Find out why, as a custodian, Bob has spent much of his life trying to keep bananas out of onion bags, why a submarine can often land you in a sin bin, who killed the Galacticos, why snooker balls wipe their feet, and why you'll never see a condor from the Crow's Nest. Laced with anecdotes from Wilson's own football and television careers, "Rucks, Pucks & Sliders" features one of sport's most enduring icons guiding us through the fascinating true meanings, heritage and evolution of great sporting terms we use today. As Kevin Keegan said of his previous book, 'It's a lesson in the language of sport from a man that should know.'
