Episode 44: BEAUTIFUL GAMES (FOOTBALL FANDOM)
When: Sunday NOVEMBER 17, 5:00 PM UTC/GMT / Noon EST (Click to see what time that is for you!)
Where: thefandomspot @ YouTube
What: As the single most popular cultural form on the planet, it’s high time that football got its turn in the Fandomspotting limelight. After all, what’s Destiel vs. Wincest, compared with the Old Firm or the Revierderby? Lannisters and Starks ain’t got nothing on Madridistas and Culés. And really — was Snape killing Dumbledore any more shocking than Fernando Torres leaving Liverpool for Chelsea?
This Sunday, we’ll be talking about football fandom — RPF and otherwise — in all its glory: its history over the last decade, its major ships and rivalries, its relation to “mainstream” sport culture and the fourth wall, and more. We’ve picked an international break weekend, so leave your fantasy team alone and check us out for WAGs, abs and drama!
