On a quasi-related note, Time Warner Cable has finally added Fox Soccer channel in HD.  Certain things in like, HD makes a huge difference.  Watching soccer on television is definitely among them.  And, for those who think soccer is boring because there’s not a lot of scoring, yesterday’s 1-0 Manchester City vs. Arsenal match was a super-dramatic, wide open game.  Yeah, I’m an American and more goals would’ve been nice, but I’ve seen games with a lot more goals that were a lot less exciting.
