ManU and Liverpool

Saturday morning in the city and I get to watch a little English Premier League football (soccer for the majority of North Americans) on television.

This morning it is Manchester United and Liverpool. In the 75th minute the score is nil/nil (as they say in football), yet there is far more drama, athleticism, excitement, and evident strategy than in a week of baseball games and a weekend of American football. Only hockey bests it.

Even more important, the commentators are intelligent, restrained and eloquent . . . a far cry from the brutish, loud, illiterate commentary that makes NFL games so unpleasant to watch.
