Now that the World Cup is over what do I do with myself?

The answer is simple. Read this amazing book--Among the Thugs!


My friend Matthew recommended this book to me a few years ago and it's still vivid in my mind. It's a fascinating study of fan behavior, team allegiance, and the destruction of town squares. Bill Buford is a great writer and he details his experiences with plenty of wit. He sounds terrified through much of the book but he stays in the thick of things and it is amazing.

WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP! WORLD CUP!
