The People’s Game Radio Show for Saturday June 26, 2010
The people’s sports journalist, Dave Zirin, joins us in today’s feature interview; for a discussion of how sports, and soccer in particular, can serve social justice. But first an extended discussion with Nick Green, perhaps the American journalist closest to Team USA. The Yankees are out of the World Cup and while it was a thrilling run, there are many questions that need to be asked about Team USA: why the early goals? why did Ricardo Clark start? why did Finley? why no Buddle when he and Donovan are such a magic pair in the MSL? where’s Gooch? what future for Coach Bradley? We’ll tackle all those and more in our discussion with Nick. In our final segment, we’re joined by The People’s Game’s Uruguayan correspondent, Lazar Treschan, to review La Celeste’s victory over South Korea and consider just how far they might go.
