    Looks cool. I'd love to follow soccer, but it's tough to find it on TV... I think anyway. Anyone know how to find games on TV? Or a programming schedule?

      Aston Villa -- By all accounts, they have the most miserable, self-loathing fan base in the EPL. That's what happens when you support a team that sounds like a Cadillac model.
      That ones getting an email composed as we speak....:D

      This one made me chuckle though:

      Estimated number of "I don't care who you pick, just don't pick Manchester United" e-mails: At least 700-750.
      Nice article, then again i have serious reservations about the judgement of anyone who sees fulham as a tempting holiday spot.

            I generally just watch international soccer, which is usually on ESPN if its a big enough game. Im thinking about getting the premiership games though, which i think can be done by asking your cable/dish provider for the premiership package. Ill have to look into it.

              On my digital cable "guide", I can organize listings by themes. I went to sports and then soccer to find USA's world cup games.

              San Diego used to have the best indoor soccer team in the US (maybe the world? Is indoor soccer popular anywhere else?) The San Diego Sockers. They had a championship ring for every finger and thumb! I went and watched them win a couple of their championships...

              Anyway, now I think you'd have to go up to LA to watch Chivas USA if you want to see a live game. Chivas Mexico is kinda like Manchester United or the New York Yankees in that it's a great team that everyone loves to hate.

                He's right about having your spirit crushed tho. 15 years of supporting Spurs has left me a nervous wreck. When i heard on the radio that the team had gone down with food poisoning.. well i nearly cried to be honest :(

                  Bill Simmons is a must read. He is more of a fan writing about sports than a journalist so his views are slanted towards the Boston sports (except the Bruins) but I am sure that any fan who is passionate about the teams they cheer for or a fan of sports in general can relate to what he talks about. Its also fun to see him blend pop culture (past and present) with sports. Just my .05.

                            You could always call it by it's correct name ; the premier league.

                              You think that England has the only "premier league" in the world? Heh... And after a quick google, I see that its correct name is "The FA Premier League".
