Read full description of the books What's My Name, Fool? Sports and Resistance in the United States:Once i started this, I had trouble putting it down. Part of me was hoping that the book would give me a reason to like sports, enlightening me on something that i've just missed out on or didn't see, but in reality, it only gave me a reason to like certain athletes using their popularity as a pulpit, despite going completely against the grain. It actually gave more reasons to be critical of the sports industrial complex. It's hard enough to be a dissident in normal US society, try doing it in the hyper capitalist, sexist, racist, homophobic world of sports.
At times, his attempt to make jokes didn't really fit in with the analysis that started the book out. i did enjoy his prose, and his obvious love of sports combined with his love of progressive issues, and hatred of capitalism and corporate america. fun, quick read that will make you think about things that you've never thought you'd care about. but it's worth the time because it's a part of this thing that we all love to hate called amerikkka. Plus it will give you something else to talk to normals about.
