      It’s possible ESPN plus and Telemundo or maybe other media might be interested in getting the Copa America next summer.

    Will ESPN send commentators to Europe or will they do commentary from the studios in Bristol, CT? I believe John Champion will be one of the commentators. What about Ian Darke and Derek Rae?
    I’m not looking forward to Adrian Healy or Taylor Twellman. I wish ESPN would use the world feed on ESPN+ I’m guessing TSN in Canada will use the world feed.
