Erratic Fire, Erratic Passion
The content of post-game interviews and sports chatter is so often meaningless, if not insufferable. And yet there are athletes like Metta World Peace who transcend lame clichés and rote patter, who use language in surprising ways, who can be funny and shocking and insightful and alarmingly sincere--pure poetry. Muhammad Ali offered dazzling displays of lexical wizardry, and Allen Iverson's infamous "practice" rant shifted the postgame press conference from the banal to the absurd.
Featuring an introduction by award-winning sports writer Bethlehem Shoals, "Erratic Fire, Erratic Passion" is a celebration of these rare and exceptional moments. Various poetic forms and line-breaks highlight--or, in the words of Deion Sanders, "deem to set a candor on"--the sophisticated, sublime, and surprising performances of language made by professional athletes.
