Duke of Fluke Fishing Tournament

Celebrating its silver anniversary, this competition among pole-wielders is anything but a beauty contest. Those who haul in the biggest, flat-faced summer flounder can win up to $1,600 — but then have to deal with a fish only its mama could love.

He won some Emmys for his work on Everybody Loves Raymond, but truth be told, he’s better than that. For a sneak peak of Garrett’s act, pick up his new book, When the Balls Drop. (Oy.)
