One of the best, if not the best at writing and talking about the places where sports, politics, and culture meet is Dave Zirin. A columnist for The Nation, SLAM, and SI.com, he is the author of A People's History of Sports, Bad Sports, What's My Name, Fool?, and co-author of The John Carlos Story, and is here tonight with his newest, Game Over: How Politics Has Turned the Sports World Upside Down (The New Press). "Most consciences are not as loud, as funny, as entertaining, or as right as often as Dave Zirin, the unquiet conscience of all our games. If you're an owner, fear him. If you're a fan, damn it, listen to [or read] him." - Charles P. Pierce.
