The New Enthusiast is built on the assumption that, among the many things that it is, sport is a ritual expression of the human comedy. It’s also built on the other, more tenuous assumption that we, the authors, can read and write Standard English.

Just like storied physicist Sir Isaac Newton — and probably also that kid from Roald Dahl’s The BFG — if we have seen further, it’s by standing on the shoulders of giants. Our giants, like Newton, are frighteningly erudite, and, like the BFG, nice guys once you get to know them. None of them (i.e. the giants) is Gheorghe Muresan.

The original owner-operators of the site are Carson Cistulli and Ross McSweeney. Other contributors have included or still include Sean Casey, Dayn Perry, and Danny Woytek. It almost goes without saying that all of their records are wind-aided.
