John Green; Best-selling novelist on Liverpool fandom, sponsoring Wimbledon
Best-selling novelist John Green joins Grant to talk about his love of soccer, including Liverpool FC and the inspirational story of AFC Wimbledon, where he’s a sponsor and where the north end of the stadium is called the John Green Stand. Green also explains how a guy who went to high school in Alabama got so infatuated with English soccer—and what he thinks makes soccer fandom different from being a fan of the more traditional U.S. pro sports.
