ESPN Tommy Smyth's Appearance on PBS
It’s the weekend of the World Cup Final, and it’ll be interesting to see how the media in the United States reacts to The Big Game.
So far, so good. While watching the Charlie Rose show Friday night on PBS, ESPN color commentator Tommy Smyth was interviewed and previewed Sunday’s match. Although Smyth rubs a lot of soccer fans the wrong way, I personally enjoy Smyth’s breath-of-fresh-air comments and insightful analysis.
It was also interesting to see that Rose is obviously a soccer fan.
Tommy’s prediction for Sunday’s final? Italy will win, and it won’t be settled by penalty kicks.
