9780803240476: The Soccer Diaries: An American's Thirty-Year Pursuit of the International Game
Críticas:

"An intimate and wonderfully written account of a sport that is increasingly shaking America's soul out." - Colum McCann, author of the National Book Award winner Let the Great World Spin and Dancer "More than just one man's thirty-year obsession with the sport, The Soccer Diaries is also the American odyssey of the sport itself. The Soccer Diaries is the incredible journey of the beautiful game over the last three decades. And it's an education for even the most fanatical of supporters." - David Peace, author of The Damned Utd and Red or Dead "Here is a delightful, briskly readable memoir of sports obsession that deftly cuts across decades and cultures - with one manic, maddening, miraculous sport at its center." - Hampton Sides, best-selling author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder

Críticas:

"For more than thirty years, Michael Agovino has been keeping a very keen eye on the world's most popular sport. When he was a kid, soccer in America was viewed as a vaguely subversive pursuit for commie potheads and diminutive foreigners in knickers. Now, it's a game that permeates every cranny of the world, even the United States. Here is a delightful, briskly readable memoir of sports obsession that deftly cuts across decades and cultures--with one manic, maddening, miraculous sport at its center."--Hampton Sides, best-selling author of Ghost Soldiers "and" Hellhound on his Trail"--Hampton Sides (09/20/2013)

Descripción University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 221 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Although soccer had long been the world s game when Michael J. Agovino first encountered it in 1982, here it was just a poor cousin to American football, to be found on obscure UHF channels and in foreign magazines. But as Agovino himself passionately pursued soccer, Americans got wise and turned it into one of the most popular sports in the country. Agovino s love affair with soccer is a portrait of the game s culture and an intimate history of the sport s coming of age in the United States. Agovino s quest takes him from the unkempt field in the Bronx where he taught himself to play to some of the sport s most storied venues and historic matches. With Agovino we travel from school fields to Giants Stadium, then from England to Germany, Italy, and Spain, along the way taking in the final days of the North American Soccer League, the 1994 World Cup, and the birth of Major League Soccer. Offering the perspective of fan, player, and journalist, Agovino chronicles his obsession with the sport and its phenomenal evolution. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9780803240476
