ESPN+ Is Worth Your Money

It has been a long time coming but ESPN’s attempt at a direct to consumer streaming network is here. Unfortunately for some, it was not what they were hoping for. They were hoping for a full replacement to ESPN & ESPN2 but that’s not going to happen as long as ESPN keeps getting subscriber fees from cable companies. Once you get past that disappointment, you will realize they have built a great streaming service for cord cutters and cable subscribers alike. And if you are a fan of soccer, it is more than worth your $5 a month.

I am not one of those fans but Joshua Picazo is. Today, we will both make our cases. Let us know in the comments who you agree with.

My November Callups

Reunited and it feels so good…… (Hopefully)

Its almost time for the November friendlies aka Judgement Day for Vela. The games will be important but all anyone has been talking about since the Panama game has been Carlitos Vela. Will he or won’t he? No one really knows, at least for a few more days. But if you ask me, he will be there.

Mexico v Honduras

The October friendlies are upon us and Mexico will actually play them in Mexico. Just how rare is a Mexico game in the country of Mexico?

That rare. National team games are like printing money in the US (and the federation has a contract to play a certain # of games there). Let’s see what Piojo has in store for us tonight. Continue reading
