How many grassroots teams can boast an international travel journalist as a supporter and a book about President Obama as a sponsor? Well WE can!!!

Here at CRFC we make no bones about our political loyalties on the club’s official twitter feed and we are 110% behing Obama’s campaign for a second term in office. That is why we are excited to announce ‘Obama and Me’ by Steve Zacharanda as our latest website sponsor.

Steve is a long time friend on the club from our early birth on twitter to us becoming a regular feature on his prime time radio show on a Thursday night for Scratch Radio, a berth he shares with fellow CRFC supporter Gurdip Thandi.

The book Obama and me is described on Steve’s official site as…

“The book is the hilarious account of how a penniless Brummie journalist left all his responsibilities at home and went to volunteer for Barack Obama. Living on his wits Steve Zacharanda fought the good fight in Miami whilst getting into countless scrapes. Steve was catapulted to brief infamy when he became an International YouTube Sensation after his foul mouthed video captured the imagination of a world celebrating Obama’s victory.

As well as documenting one of the most important elections of all time the book is a fascinating exploration into what it is like being in the middle of a media storm and how quickly one pissed up idiot can go from talking rubbish one minute to being reported in The Times, Guardian, Syndey Morning Herald, New York Times, Washington Post, Dutch, German, Sri-Lankan, Indian and Russian publications and appearing on Good Morning America, Fox News, Sky News and BBC News amongst others.

He was derided for humiliating British journalism by some, but lauded as a legend by others.
This painfully honest book about life on the campaign trial, his brief flirtation with stardom and then losing it all is now being hailed as one of the funniest ever written about politics”
