The Return of DB23 & Let's Get the Mexico - US Match on a bigger English language Network

This week it was announced that the Mexico-US match at Azteca next month will only be available on Telemundo and Mun2, with Mun2 carrying the English feed. This means many USMNT fans will have to watch the Spanish language feed. This would not be so bad if it was on Univision or Telefutura, but the Telemundo commentators are over the top in their Mexico bias.

Match Fit USA has started a campaign to get NBC Universal to move the English feed to a more widely available network.

David Beckham finally returns to the L.A. Galaxy and MLS tonight at the Meadowlands where they'll be playing RedBull New York. The match airs 7pm central time on Fox Soccer Channel. Earlier this week, Grant Wahl's The Beckham Experiment was published, detailing the bizarre relationship between Becks, MLS, AEG, 19 Entertainment, and the L.A. Galaxy.

I'm currently reading the book and will have a review posted at Major League Soccer Talk when I'm done, in the meantime check out Kartik's review.

And of course, you can buy the book at Amazon.
