Everton Football Club in Liverpool, England, and The Oakland Athletics from Oakland, California, play in different sports some 8,000 apart yet share a special talent for besting wealthier opposition. Oakland is the original Moneyball team; Everton is England's Moneyball story. These modern-day Davids can teach us a lot about playing sports and overcoming Goliaths such as Big Money.
