“In his enlightening essay collection, Nation columnist and author Zirin (Welcome to the Terrordome) employs common sense and research to show that politics and sports are entangled, whether it’s members of the Green Bay Packers supporting the collective bargaining rights of Wisconsin’s public workers or the Phoenix Suns donning ‘Los Suns’ uniforms to protest Arizona’s controversial, immigrant-obsessed law, SB 1070. . . . Zirin steadfastly demonstrates how the games we watch are not just an escape from the everyday: they are a reflection that provides a perfect opportunity for protest and change.”

Out of all of Zirin's works, this one has the most blatant misleading untruths. I would love to see actual verification and proof of some of those quotes. He can't hold a candle to a guy like Cosell.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
