#Bukowski habla de fútbol americano 02: "STONECLOUD: Let's put it this way. They criticize the traditional Hemingwayesque concept of the he-man. I remember in a recent poem you defended him and his work against a woman who thought he was a fascist pig. In general, what about that concept of being a football player, hunter, or soldier?
BUKOWSKI: If you're a man, even though these things are stupid in a way, even senseless, like killing lions and all that bash, or Wilt Chamberlain tossing in a basket; still, as a man, you know this takes a certain finesse and a certain amount of courage. I think that only a man can understand a man's viewpoint of doing this thing, or getting in a ring and whipping another guy, doing the best you can. The matter of doing the dangerous thing. I think we just can't eliminate this as total loss. There's something about competition, even though it's gross and ugly and stupid, that makes it vital. Hemingway is put down a great deal but to do what he did or write like he did is very tough. I don't call him a fag or some damn thing; some of those women go that far. Of course if a man's a fag, that's something else too, like a beer bottle. You can't eliminate that either."
