#WanderingJune #Dontcryformeargentina
Like many today, I realized I haven‘t read any Argentina-set books!
So #notbookrelated , I cannot wait to see this documentary, but I have to wait until September to see it here in the US.
Asif Kapadia is such a fantastic documentary film maker. I loved both ‘Senna‘ and ‘Amy‘ so much, & Maradona should be a fascinating subject.
Asif was interviewed on my favorite movie podcast this week (link in the comments)

BarbaraBB There‘s a good story in this one I‘m sure! 7mo
Cinfhen This does sound fascinating. @TrishB @arlenefinnigan are u familiar with this player??!!? 7mo

TrishB @Cinfhen oh yes indeed!!! Look up Hand of God linked with his name 😁😁 7mo
arlenefinnigan @Cinfhen 25 years ago this week that he scored a great goal at the World Cup while clearly high on cocaine https://youtu.be/xfwFg7n92Ck 7mo
Cinfhen Ha @arlenefinnigan I love the announcer!!!! Now to check out @TrishB link 7mo
KarenUK @cinfhen You‘ll definitely see why he‘s well known to us Brits! 😂🖐🏼⚽️ (edited) 7mo

Peter Shilton needs to get over the whole Hand Of God thing. The real question should be how did Maradona beat him to that goal when he's 2 feet shorter than him.

“ The lawyers at Winston & Strawn who worked on the filing saw their email inboxes flooded with messages from young girls who wanted to contact the players. Some of them were writing papers for school projects. Some just wanted to let the players know they supported them. Others were saying thanks.

‘It was a moving response,‘ says Jeffrey Kessler. ⬇️

suzisteffen “Sauerbrunn says she is still getting requests from young fans working on school projects about equal pay and women soccer.” 8mo
suzisteffen This book is an emotional read. IN OTHER NEWS, FIFA doubled the WWC purse to a total of $30 million (US) and then added another $30 million to the MWC purse, making that $440 million. WWC, $30m. MWC, $440m. WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUDGE 8mo

Happy Sunday Littens! 🤗 I got a little distracted yesterday afternoon with cleaning the house 🤷🏻‍♀️—so I am excited to get a few chapters in while my husband is still asleep. 📚🤓 Soon enough we will have the World Cup playing on the TV. ⚽️🇫🇷

Are you watching the game? Which team are you rooting for? 🇫🇷🇭🇷 If not, what are your Sunday plans?

The English version of Soccernomics, this book uses statistical analysis to examine football and explain why England lose, which countries are the biggest overachievers and underachievers, which countries are destined to be future champions of the sport, and much more!
My problem is that the data in this book is over 10 years old now, and many things have changed (e.g. Spain‘s 6 years of dominance), so an updated version would be better. 👍⚽️💕
