The Global Game

The Global Game is a soccer anthology published by the University of Nebraska Press last fall. Like any anthology, this book is a collection of texts written in a variety of genres by 56 authors from all over the world. We will explore essays, short stories, poems, fables, nonfiction narratives, and editor’s notes. I added this book to my Shelfari.
To start the ball rolling, study idioms with the word “ball.”
on the ball – efficient, quick to react to changes
get/start the ball rolling – make something happen
take the ball and run with it – continue an activity started by someone else
the ball is in your court – it is your time to do something about a situation
have a ball – to have a good time
I welcome your examples as comments.
