"Zirin is America's best sportswriter."--Lee Ballinger, "Rock and Rap Confidential"

"Zirin is one of the brightest, most audacious voices I can remember on the sportswriting scene, and my memory goes back to the 1920s."--Lester Rodney, "N.Y. Daily Worker" sports editor, 1936-1958

"Zirin has an amazing talent for covering the sports and politics beat. Ranging like a great shortstop, he scoops up everything He profiles the courageous and inspiring athletes who are standing up for peace and civil liberties in this repressive age. A must read "--Matthew Rothschild, "The Progressive"

"This is cutting-edge analysis delivered with wit and compassion."--Mike Marqusee, author, "Redemption Song: Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties"

Here "Edgeofsports.com" sportswriter Dave Zirin shows how sports express the worst, as well as the most creative and exciting, features of American society.

Zirin explores how Janet Jackson's Super Bowl flash-time show exposed more than a breast, why the labor movement has everything to learn from sports unions and why a new generation of athletes is no longer content to "play one game at a time" and is starting to get political.

"What's My Name, Fool " draws on original interviews with former heavyweight champ George Foreman, Olympian and black power saluter John Carlos, NBA basketball player and anti-death penalty activist Etan Thomas, antiwar women's college hoopster Toni Smith, Olympic Project for Human Rights leader Lee Evans and many others.

Popular sportswriter and commentator Dave Zirin is editor of "The Prince George's Post" (Maryland) and writes the weekly column "Edge of Sports" ("edgeofsports.com"). He is a senior writer at "basketball.com." Zirin's writing has also appeared in "The Source," "Common Dreams," "College Sporting News," "CounterPunch," "Alternet," "International Socialist Review," "Black Sports Network," "War Times," "San Francisco Bay View" and "Z Magazine."
