Separating fact from myth, Kalb attempts to determine which of these long-held conspiracy theories hold water, and which ones fall flat under scrutiny. Ranking the conspiracies from 1 to 30 and the likelihood of each conspiracy from 1 to 5, Kalb boldly asks:
Did baseball avoid integration in the 1930s and 1940s with an unwritten agreement?
Was Super Bowl III a fixed game?
Did Sonny Liston throw both of his fights vs. Muhammad Ali?
Was the NBA’s first-ever draft lottery fixed?
Why did Michael Jordan really retire from basketball the first time?
Are some NASCAR race outcomes too good to be true?
Did the New England Patriots cheat their way to a dynasty?
What really happened at the 1921 Kentucky Derby?
Why weren’t any Japanese players signed to major league contracts from 1965-1995?
