Teaser Tuesdays – Soccer Men (Jan 13)

teasertuesdays2014eTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here are my teasers for this week:

Gattuso left Scotland after only one year, but with a souvenir: his future wife, Monica, whose father owned his favorite Glaswegian pizzeria.

From page 88 of Soccer Men: Profiles of Rogues, Geniuses, and Neurotics Who Dominate the World’s Most Popular Sport by Simon Kuper.

    • I’m just getting the book started (it was a Christmas present), but it does look like a good read. We follow the Scottish leagues (Rangers FC) here, as well as Liverpool and TFC.
