Pledge at the $120 level or above and receive a copy of Dave Zirin's book, Game Over, about the uneasy confluence of sports and politics. As featured on Your Call!

During the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War, athletes routinely made their political views known. In some cases, that isolated them from sports fans. In other cases, their influence led to real change. In recent decades, those voices fell silent. Some say the siren's call of endorsement deals made them gun-shy about speaking their minds.

But in Game Over, celebrated alt-sportswriter Dave Zirin proves once and for all that politics has breached the modern sports arena with a vengeance.
