I Sit with Colin Kaepernick…
...though he would never sit with me. When I was a teenager, I trusted my government. Actually, when I was a teenager, I didn't care enough about government to trust or distrust it.

They… Continue reading Super Bowl Hangover
Pretending to Like Sports: 10 Rules to Avoid Humiliation

GSH is a movie about an American, Matt, who travels to England and is dropped into the violent, drunken world of football hooliganism for the English Premier League. Hooliganism… Continue reading Broad Street Hooligans?
