Covering South American Sporting venues in UAE’s “The National”

August 3, 2010

From time to time I’ve been known to escape the confines of this blog, and this week is one of those times, as I have some stories up at The National, an English newspaper in the United Arab Emirates.

The stories - given to me by former colleague Paul Oberjuerge - were on sporting venues in South America. The three stories:

Maracana is the heart of Brazilian football

Chocolate Box of Boca is no treat for visiting clubs

Where Speed is King in Brazil

They were interesting stories to write. I talked with a few people about the venues, and was also able to add some of the knowledge I’ve picked up in Brazil to the story. All in all, a quite interesting and positive assignment and experience.


Wolfrum the big name for Teen Werewolves

There are Werewolves in Texas. And the leader of the “Wolf Pack” is known as “DayKitten Wolfrum Lupis.”

The Wolfrum name proudly lives on.


Martin Eisenstadt mocks me? Fine, I’ll put his book online

October 24, 2009

As the world’s foremost expert on Martin Eisenstadt, I’ve done quite a bit of snooping around to learn more about his upcoming book, “One Man’s Wildly Inapproriate Adventures with the Last Republicans.”

Now, first of all, the title of the book is much better than what it was originally: “One Man’s Barely Legal Adventures with the Last Republicans” (seriously).

Secondly, using my vast Internet detective skills, I found some of the pre-released book. As normal, Eisenstadt is fairly clueless and left it hanging around his site. And let me tell you, this book could be a political bombshell, as it names name: Sarah Palin, Rachael Ray, the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Bobby Jindal, Dick Cheney to name a few.

Of course, Eisenstadt got a shot in at me: “And who is this “Wolfrum,” the supposed golf blogger based in Brazil, who since May 2008 has been lobbing absurd online accusations against me?”

Find out more about the book and about Martin Eisenstadt’s bizarre past by clicking here (note, it’s a PDF). Of course, the book comes out on Tuesday. I’m hoping to have the whole book online by then, however.

What does my 2,000th post mean to you?

October 12, 2009

This is the 2,000th post I’ve made here at William K. Wolfrum Chronicles. While arbitrary numbers don’t mean a lot to me, I’m going to assume they mean a lot to you, my loyal readers.

So please feel free to use the comment section below to discuss this landmark post and what this site means to you. Write a poem, or song lyrics or something if you like. That would be nice.


I’m William K. Wolfrum, and you better recognize

September 11, 2009

One of my goals for 2009 was to expand my audience. For those of you at the Chronicles, you haven’t noticed much change. However, I have been dutifully crossposting, guest blogging and the like at several other Web sites lately. Add to that my gig at, and I’ve been getting myself around.

To celebrate this fact (I live in Brazil, we celebrate everything here), I have decided to see how much original content I could get at my different sites in a 48-hour period. Here’s just some of what I’ve been up to lo these many hours on the Internets:

  • The FedEx Cup: The most important tournament-ish golf-thingy of 2009
  • Dagblog: Statement from William K. Wolfrum: “Disagreeing with Obama does not make me racist”
  • PandaGoal: Brazilian economy grinds to standstill as schadenfreude overtakes nation
  • DailyKos: Forget Joe Wilson and Mark Sanford, says S.C. Tourism chief, remember great golf, high crime rates
  • A Kissing Bandit can spice up Steve Stricker, FedEx Cup
  • TPMCafe: Be a Great American Patriot in five easy steps
  • The Chronicles: Seven years, 11 months, four days
  • Also, the lovely and talented Mike Finnigan linked to me at his roundup at Crooks & Liars. Hell, I even put out a couple Tweets worth noting.

    All I’m saying is this - I’m William K. Wolfrum, and you better recognize.
