it was amazing
Recommended for: Anyone interested in popular sports

If you ever wondered what sports are like behind the fake smiles and scripted arguments on ESPN and the like, this is your book. Will Leitch was the editor of Deadspin, the largest sports blog on the Internet. His style is one we can all relate to: speaking from the voice of a fan of sports. His generation will replace the aging dinosaur generation of sports writers someday soon, but until then, you'll have to settle for his thought provoking analysis of today's sports stories.
