Hey, look man, I’m not a yeller. I don’t want to yell. Please, please, just listen closely, okay? Hmm. This bar is pretty noisy. You’ll have to move in a bit closer.*pours half a beer on your head*
Understand? Okay, now listen: read The Damned UTD by David Peace. Honestly, I don’t even know what soccer is and I loved it — and I mean, you know me, I don’t love anything. Listen. Peace is a maniac. Clough is a maniac. There’s drama. There’s style. There’s cool composure, even when everything is falling apart. This is the best of sport in writing. Now go, go man, go get yourself a beer.
