Disclaimer: I've never actually read Moby Dick!
If you haven't been watching the World Cup you've been seriously missing out. It's been a classic so far. Including the nerve wracking US victory over Ghana. Really though even if you're not into soccer you should still get out to a bar for a game. It's a great experience.
I don't know if you've picked up on this but I'm a bit of a soccer fan. I haven't, however, chosen to throw my support behind some random team from some random English city I've never been to. I support Barcelona. I'd love to go one day!
I'm not all about soccer though. I also like to read classic works of fiction about men at sea. There are a few I haven't read yet.
It should be clear to you by now, if you're still reading, that I can be a bit goofy. Really I just have a good sense of humor. So if you like funny and intelligent, take a look at this guy.
