A riotous excursion through the contemporary sportscape. Genosko's exhilarating approach employs an idiosyncratic mix of cultural studies, contemporary theory, and a lifetime of collection sports cards as he celebrates the heroic amateurs and the radical losers, from poolside to nationhood, bodybuilding to swimsuit magazines, hockey and bike messengers. A collection of short, sharp, and sweet essays that owe more than a touch to that other fine sportswriter, Eduardo Galeano.
