As noted in a previous post, I rarely if ever get to watch a live soccer game. Most of the time, I would blame this on a lack of television coverage in America, but I think the bigger issue here is the time and day that most games are televised.
You see, in England like in America Sunday is for football. However, its their football. Just like how we obsess over the NFL all-day Sunday, people in England (and around the world) obsess over the big matches that take place each Sunday in stadiums across England.
