Fanatic



So I'm not generally a big reader of sports books (other than golf, obviously) but this one caught my eye: Fanatic: Ten Things All Sports Fans Should Do Before They Die. Basically, the author designed a year of traveling around attending the sporting events that he considered to be on the list: the Super Bowl, The Masters, Wimbledon, the Final Four, Daytona, a couple baseball games and college match-ups. Some things were absent - it wasn't an Olympic year, for example. I really enjoyed his writing, though - it seemed like he was able to lose himself in the moment of a game while still retaining a fairly objective view. Quick read.

That sounds like one dang exciting year! No swimming or water polo events though? :) A year of themed travel- quite an idea...
