    Thanks for putting the word in on the growing interest of soccer( sorry TT) in America.

    As I said earlier in the forum the Major League Soccer Talk has a first rate podcast about the USMNT, The Gold Cup, and MLS.

    While it’s hard for me to watch the MLS, ESPN is doing the entire sport well by it’s coverage of MLS and the Men’s and Women National Teams.

    David Beckham to his credit is a man of his word and is sticking with his MLS contract and his playing again for England, can only help the sport in America. What do you think of ESPN showing England games? They are doing Euro 2008 you know.

    So instead of turning to baseball EPL fans in the USA can find plenty of soccer action at home. It’s a good feeling.

    Also BC John will be contributing to our Major League Soccer talk podcasts beginning this week. I don’t know if a single individual in this nation watches more football than BC, so I am just so thrilled to have him on the show!
