First Posted: 07/03/10 06:12 AM ET Updated: 05/25/11 05:20 PM ET

ESPN columnist Rick Reilly has a new book out, "Sports from Hell," and he spoke about his quest to find the world's dumbest sport on "Good Morning America" today. The challenge brought him to a chess boxing tournament, the World Sauna Championships, and a host of other crazy sports, the most absurd of which was probably "ferret legging," in which Reilly had a ferret stuffed into his pants.

You can read an excerpt from "Sports from Hell" on the "Good Morning America" website.
