The Daily Links: Goooooooooooooaaaaaaaaal

Posted By on Thu, Jun 19, 2014 at 5:15 PM

Every day we read a lot of stuff. If it's interesting, thought provoking, funny or being shared by everyone we know on the Internet, we share some of it with you. Happy reading.

From Grantland: Tracking back in Rio, through history, and calculating the cost of the Cup

From Sports Illustrated: Imports of Importance: The German influence on the U.S. World Cup team

From Wired: Harley Davidson't first electric motorcycle surprisingly doesn't suck

From The New York Times: Battle Cries: The world’s best soccer players bring their own unique style to the game. So it is only fitting that the commentators react in kind — calling a goal with passion and personality. The jubilance that expands a commentator’s call of “goal” to fill five, six, even 10 seconds of time seems universal, but there is regional variation. Different languages play a part, but so do regional sensibilities and the spirit of individual announcers.

From the Library of Congress: Mapping a New Nation: Abel Buell’s Map of the United States, 1784

From io9: An archeologist excavates a hippie commune, preserved in 1969 by fire

From The New Yorker: A conversation with Abu Khatalla before his capture
