The nature of sports fandom

Live-blogging today’s second hour of Midmorning with a discussion of the nature of the sports fan.

Somewhat off the topical beaten path, perhaps, but I’m going with this as the first example: High-schooler throws no-hitter to honor dad. He was one of the first swine-flu victims in the U.S.

Today’s guests:

Chuck Klosterman: Journalist and author. His most recent novel is “Downtown Owl.”

Jonah Keri: Sports and business writer. He is co-author of “Baseball Between the Numbers” and is currently working on a book about the Tampa Bay Rays.

Todd Wilkinson: Associate professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

Your comments may end up on the show.
