The Global Game

If you haven't bookmarked the Global Game on your browser, take the time to do it now; here's the link. The site gives you great access to all the culture and human spirit which frames the beautiful game we see in stadiums, on TV, and once every four years. It's the dedicated project of John Turnbull, but not his only project. He, Thomas Satterlee and Alon Raab have edited and published a bookturnbull_color.pdf.

My email updates about our first homeless soccer team, Art Works Football Club, are collected and included in the anthology. We are extremely humbly in the company of writers such as Ted Hughs, Charles Simic, Mario Vargas Llosa, Gunter Gras, Gay Talese, just to name a few. The order form is attached here but you can also purchase this on Amazon. Happy reading!

Thanks for the link, Lawrence! Happy New Year to you, Rob, players and supporters. Lawrence is too modest to mention it, but the diaries concerning Art Works Football Club provide the longest selection in the anthology. For their integrity and raw accounting of the complexities behind team formation, the diaries well deserve a place beside Vargas Llosa et al.
