Next time someone asks you How Can You Be a Footy Fan?

First Nevada Smith's, and in Houston how about the Bull and Bear, or the Richmond Arms or the Bull and Bear or the Mezz...or...or...or...

Sunday at Smith's: A Soccer Ethnography from Nisha Ligon on Vimeo.

Big shout-out to SF for tipping me to this. What a great 15 minutes this was to watch. Hell, I think I'll rewind and watch it again!

I'm glad you found the film and like it! I didn't do much to distribute it beyond school when I first made it, so it's nice that it's getting its second run on vimeo.

Anna Liffey's Pub is my football haunt in New Haven should be added to your list of places to go to watch matches!

You're very welcome Nisha. I thought the piece was wonderful, especially the part about how this would not be possible in England. The difference in watching soccer in the US vs. watching it in other parts of the world is a subject ripe for exploration I think. Or at least it fascinates me!

If you're ever in Houston, drop a line.
