Wake Up and Win, America Kindle Edition
Wake up and win, America, among other things, endeavors to promote soccer in the United States. It encourages victory in international soccer contests, using the guiding story of a married couple, Steve and Carol Bloom, who vacationed in Atlanta Georgia to watch the 1996 soccer Olympics. This eventful vacation remains a memorable experience for Steve and Carol, whose infectious love for soccer attracted discussions over this beautiful sport from other American soccer fans. Some of these persons suddenly developed their own love for soccer and even joined groups of discussants to reflect on the state of soccer in the nation. Discussants consist of other soccer enthusiasts, coaches and celebrities of varied description. Their discussions include assessments, constructive criticisms and recommendations for the improvement of the men's national soccer team. The comic section of book, of course, should not be overlooked. This title and creative project is based on soccer, but the reader will discover that it is larger than soccer. It encourages resilience, hard work, unity in diversity and, above all, victory.
Author Patrick Carolus Melus recently released the revised version of his celebrated soccer commentary, Wake Up and Win, America. Melus hopes that his work will inspire Americans to embrace soccer and strive to excel in a sport that is often overlooked in the United States.
Wake Up and Win, America follows the real-life story of Steve and Carol Bloom, a married couple who traveled to Atlanta to watch the Olympic soccer matches in 1996. Their infectious love of the sport prompted discussions with fellow fans, soccer enthusiasts, and even coaches. These conversations dissect the state of American soccer and how the U.S. men's national soccer team can rise to a competitive level on the world stage.
Melus seamlessly blends fictional elements into the story to expand upon the core narrative of Steve and Carol's experiences. Through their eyes, readers can explore the sport and how it embodies values like hard work, resilience, and unity in diversity. As an immigrant, the author delves into the international community's relationship with soccer and how diversifying athletics adds a multicultural perspective to American society.
Wake Up and Win, America is perfect for soccer fans and those who wish to see America succeed in a broader range of international sporting activities. Unlike other books about soccer, Melus's book explores the human side of American soccer through the feelings, ideas, and comments of ordinary people. Wake Up and Win, America also contains teachable moments that prompt leaders in soccer to consider how the sport will evolve in the future.
Reviewers applaud Melus's "insightful revelations into the world of soccer in America," describing Wake Up and Win, America as a comprehensive work with the "potential to leave an indelible mark on soccer followings in the United States." By highlighting the tangible benefits of soccer, this book encourages readers to build new relationships, become healthier, and make a commitment to the ultimate team sport.
Patrick Carolus Melus is an author and lifelong fan of soccer. In his work, he draws upon his background in psychology and education to analyze various facets of the sport.
