Eating Clubs offer diverse sports cultures
Trent Magruder
Princetonian Staff Writer
"We had a lot of people pretty into soccer this fall," intramural chair Jimmy Hoeland said.
Other popular intramural sports at the club include broomball and five-on-five basketball. Hoeland noted that interest in IM sports over the past few year had been slowly but steadily on the rise.
Campus Campus sports several highly competitive IM teams, including a three-on-three basketball team and the reigning-champion bridge team. While activities chair Dan Recht noted that the club was not overwhelmingly athletic, he thought Campus' lack of varsity athletes helped strengthen participation on the IM teams. The club features two pool tables and a unique foosball table partly built by a member some years ago. Tower Although Tower only boasts rarely-used basketball and volleyball courts and a pool table (although the taproom dartboard is popular on party nights), the club prides itself on having high intramural participation that resulted in winning both the kickball and soccer championship in the past year. But while Tower members might not be the most athletic group, many are fans. Tower member Kinder Noble embodies school spirit when she dons the Princeton Tiger mascot suit, and members turn out in force to support the varsity basketball team through the Jadwin Jungle.

Hamm's medal mess shows differences in sports cultures
Posted: Oct. 20, 2004
Michael Hunt
When this column took the position during the Olympics that it would be absurd for Paul Hamm to return his gold medal, reaction generally fell along international lines. E-mailers identifying themselves as European typically wrote that the take exemplified everything that was wrong with America. Yet with some exceptions, Americans were OK with the premise. Such feedback didn't strike me as political so much as reflective of the way different cultures view sporting events. Generally speaking, Americans accept blown calls as part of the game. They might not like it when it happens, but they take it and move on. (A noted exception is the 19-year obsession with umpire Don Denkinger by some St. Louis fans. Yes, he badly missed a call in Game 6 of the 1985 World Series, but all liability rests with the Cardinals for Kansas City's 11-0 victory in Game 7. Get over it, already.).

Clashing Sports Cultures
By by Eric Brown, efb219 Published: Tuesday, April 12, 2005 During an afternoon last week I was watching a sporting event in Starbucks. Baseball? Try again. Chelsea v. Bayern Munich!
Not that I was trying to follow European soccer, but I was sitting on the couch minding my business when I noticed that a group of international students were following something on the TV. It was a Champions League battle - a season-long footy tournament between the best teams in Europe. So big, in fact, that ESPN2 was broadcasting it here.
I knew a little about what was going on. For instance, I had heard of Oliver Kahn, the goalkeeper of Bayern Munich. He had ratty, unmanageable blond hair that would have been stylish in the 1970s. Kahn didn't have a very fun day, giving up four goals as the Londoners won the first leg of their home-and-home.
(If you have no idea what I was talking about, then just smile and move on.)

Designer Masculinity:
Men, Science and Body Aesthetics
The study of men and the medicalization of everyday life details how an established masculine identity (i.e., the strong, silent, youthful, dominant, aggressive, and muscular male), is not an easily attained or privileging status. Rather, it is a perceptively unattainable cultural ideal against which many men anxiously monitor and critically judge their identities through daily physical regimen and rationalized self-presentations. Of central concern in this public discussion are the motives men express regarding their involvement in these body practices. Also addressed is the degree to which men rely on scientific intervention into cultural problems of masculinity, yet have only minimal understandings of the actual science underpinning these types of procedures.

A quilt of sports cultures is on show in New Jersey
By Jyotirmoy Datta
Sanjay Patel, the Piscataway Cricket Club’s current Player of the Week. (Photo, as it appears on / piscatawaycricket) One effect of history’s greatest wave of immigration to the United States from South Asia has been growing diversity in sports. Where once baseball held sway, cricket has made inroads. This quilt of sports cultures was recently on display at a New Jersey park.
“When the Piscataway High School baseball team arrived at its home field for a game two weeks ago,” The Star-Ledger reported on May 31. “the first thing the coach had to do was to call the police to report a group of men in white suits on the field.
“It was the Piscataway Cricket Club trying to sneak in a match on their own home field, a makeshift cricket pitch that partially overlaps the baseball field. The police arrived and the cricket players were forced on the sidelines till the baseball game was over.”

Soccer and American Exceptionalism
Andrei S. Markovits and Steven L. Hellerman
Shopping Cart Reviews Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format] Search within this book at Google Print Soccer is the world's favorite pastime, a passion for billions around the globe. In the United States, however, the sport is a distant also-ran behind football, baseball, basketball, and hockey. Why is America an exception? And why, despite America's leading role in popular culture, does most of the world ignore American sports in return? Offside is the first book to explain these peculiarities, taking us on a thoughtful and engaging tour of America's sports culture and connecting it with other fundamental American exceptionalisms. In so doing, it offers a comparative analysis of sports cultures in the industrial societies of North America and Europe. The authors argue that when sports culture developed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, nativism and nationalism were shaping a distinctly American self-image that clashed with the non-American sport of soccer. Baseball and football crowded out the game. Then poor leadership, among other factors, prevented soccer from competing with basketball and hockey as they grew. By the 1920s, the United States was contentedly isolated from what was fast becoming an international obsession. The book compares soccer's American history to that of the major sports that did catch on. It covers recent developments, including the hoopla surrounding the 1994 soccer World Cup in America, the creation of yet another professional soccer league, and American women's global preeminence in the sport. It concludes by considering the impact of soccer's growing popularity as a recreation, and what the future of sports culture in the country might say about U.S. exceptionalism in general.
