    I'm really getting into soccer now. I'm a big fan of Sporting Kansas City and I've enjoyed watching the World Cup and English Premier League soccer and the other European leagues. Look forward to the new season of EPL.:cool:

    The World Cup twenty years ago did a lot to help in the popularity of soccer in this country. If you were a kid back then, you're all grown up now, or you had kids that starting playing soccer back then.

    I think a lot of international clubs will start looking more and more at US players :)

    I can't remember which league's owners wanted to put sponsors on their jerseys, but the league said no. This was about 15 years ago.

    If the NFL decided to let their teams put company logos on their jerseys, it would wipe out NASCAR, where some companies are paying about $25M per year to be on a Sprint Cup Series car! :eek:

    I wanted to go to Man U in Denver, but alas.

    Hopefully Liverpool does something this year.

    I can't wait. I'll try and get up early enough to listen to ManU vs Swansea :)

    When I first started following the Premier League, I picked Aston Villa to root for. I guess they're being sold by their American owner, Randy Learner. He's the guy who sold the Cleveland Browns for $1B after inheriting it from his father.

    The Prime Minister is a huge Villa fan, and he's joked about getting his rich, Arab friends to buy the team, and spend the money needed to help bring them back up to the elite status of European football ...

    XM Channel 118 (BBC World Service) has Sportsworld. A program (programme for you weirdos) that discusses the Premier League on the weekends. I think it starts at 1000 EDT :)
