World Cup Blogging

Naturally there'll be some of that here this month, but I'm also blogging for the New Republic over at Frank Foer's reconstituted Goal Post blog. Among the other contributors: novelists Aleksandar Hemon, Daniel Alarcon and Rabih Alemeddine. There's also Howard Wolfson, now a Deputy Mayor of New York City but better known, perhaps, as communications director for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. 

Anyway, it should be fun so I hope you'll come on over and say hello there as well. My opening contribution is to express the desire that Anyone But Brazil wins. However you can skip that and move to Daniel Alarcon's reflections on the Cult of Maradona.

Naturally there's also a Twitter feed here.
