Steve Almond - Against Football

The ever glorious Steve Almond (Candyfreak, My Life in Heavy Metal) joins us with his searing manifesto guaranteed to infuriate at least half of the nation: why football damages society. He posits that the game has many hazards: the brain injuries that devastate athletes' lives, the psychological and economic hazards, and the cultural implications of turning a fun childhood pastime into a billion-dollar industry.
