    T-9 months til Costas starts babbling about his great love of the beautiful game and it’s storied past.

  4. Smokey Bacon says:

    Lets hope they don’t draft him for the big games like Fox does with Curt Menefee.

  5. King Eric says:

    wonder what that will do to fsc/fs plus? i’m guessing they will be getting a lot of cancelled subscriptions.
