Tuesday’s Column: Soccer TV Coverage Scores Big

Did you know that for the first time ever on American television the English Premier League, the most popular soccer league (in terms of ratings) in this country, can now be seen almost weekly in hi def?

Did you know that coverage of the UEFA Champions League has taken a quantum step forward from announcers calling games in some distant studio rather than being there live, that there is no longer an extremely limited selection of games on TV and that you’ll never have to hear the over-used “bulge in the ol’ onion bag” phrase ever again?

You do now. (Can you tell I’m just a tad excited about these developments?).
