The Best Blog You're Not Reading: This Is American Soccer

In our new Friday afternoon series, we will bring you an excellent sports media-related blog you’ve probably never heard because you don’t spend all day, every day wander the backwaters of the Internet. In the first edition, This Is American Soccer.

Adam Spangler, previously an editor at Vanity Fair, launched TIAS with the goal of giving “a glimpse into the soul of American soccer by capturing moments in time – digital stamps to let those who follow understand the world’s most popular sport in a malnourished American enviroment.” And he’s succeeding, thanks to brilliant longform journalism, investigations into the sport’s youth movement, interviews with figures such as Spike Lee.

Longform sports writing in this country is dying, but Spangler’s keeping it alive at TIAS. We wish him the best.
