"Riotous fan behavior, intricate behind-the-scenes machinations, and madcap histories dominate in this 'irresistible tour de force' (Don Van Natta Jr.) exploration of the American sports stadium. In The Arena, intrepid sportswriter Rafi Kohan finagles access to our most beloved fields to find out just what makes them tick: from old-timer Wrigley, creakily adjusting to the twenty-first century, to the oversized monstrosity of Jerry's World in Dallas. Investigating harrowing logistics and deeply ingrained traditions, Kohan employs his infectious 'wit and style' (Christian Science Monitor) to expose the realities of building and maintaining these commercial cathedrals. As rowdy and rollicking as its subject, The Arena is a must-read for super fans, bandwagoners, groundskeepers, culture junkies, and anyone who's ever eagerly headed off to the ballpark to catch a game."--Back cover.
