@ Wash Dips Since

Did you see the question I asked you on the Shakira thread this (Thur) morning?

LOL I just read that question.
Honestly how old do you think I am? hahaha I was actually 3 yrs old when I started so that makes me 24 years old. Reason for '88. ;)

DC soccer runs through my veins..

I wish I could remember but I have only my father who remembers for me.

=)

AMUNT DC!

Speculation about a possible Disney footie channel:

(Thanks to Soccer America for providing this link.)

No great love for Disney, but I'll take them over anything with Murdoch's stain on it. Too bad it's not being planned right now. Hope they do take the plunge soon. I could see them making more serious inroads worldwide and even in England, giving Murdoch's Sky network a run for the money.Go, Mouse, Go!

Outside of the US, ESPN's soccer coverage is god awful and only slightly improved with coverage of the Premier league (although thanks to that the cost of the sports package in Singapore doubled).

Even Sports Center in Asia focuses on Golf and Yankees baseball while the biggest sporting event on the planet is covered in detail on every other channel. I think when you televise eating competitions and poker while the world’s biggest stars are playing you lose a lot of your credibility in sports coverage outside of the US.

Still not as bad as CNN that is now
reduced to showing pictures from various sporting events (maybe that’s for their Asia broadcasts?). What’s the point in having TV coverage of sports if you are just going to show pictures? Bizarre.
