This past Wednesday, EPL Talk attended the annual Premios Fox Sports awards show in Miami Beach, which will be telecasted this Sunday December 16 to more than 33 million households throughout the United States and Latin America.
The premise of the event is to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of Latino athletes.
I’ll let you in on a secret. Don’t bother watching it.
EPL Talk attended the show hoping to interview soccer players and celebrities for the EPL Talk Podcast and blog. Last year’s event featured Jorge Campos, Jon Secada, Enrique Iglesias, Carlos Bilardo, Jaime Moreno and Cobi Jones.
Obviously our hopes were high that we would interview similar celebrities this year.
Unfortunately, the show was a flop, rife with technical problems and lacked the star power of last year’s event. The only two soccer players in presence were Mexican legend Zague and Chivas player Maykel Galindo.
The show featured several soccer awards but the majority of the winners sent in their ‘thank you’ messages taped via satellite including Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. Soccer stars that were nominated for awards that would have been welcomed with open arms if they actually showed up included Juan Pablo Angel, Guillermo Schelotto, Jaime Moreno and Teofilo Cubillas.
Even without the soccer stars, the star power present during the event was poor and was a sign of how far the awards show has fallen since last year’s event.
