Video: A Rare Interview with Franklin Foer

Remember a few years ago when "How Soccer Explains the World" came out and everyone thought Franklin Foer was the next Simon Kuper? For 8 minutes and 9 seconds you can relive those heady times once again courtesy of the CBC. Thanks Canada!

That book suffers from a lack of a cogent central thesis. A decent read but ultimately kind of hollow. Plus all the Barcelona masturbation made me cringe.

the book was and continues to be a hollow excuse for Foer to zip around the world watching the teams he likes while avoiding the actual function of the global political economy of sport.
