Earlier this year, on this blog, I dreamt up a new way of watching soccer on TV. While it might have been just a wish, the article above makes me think we are moving closer to that vision.

By the way, the less opinion, less yelling comment from above – I wonder if that applies to the behind-the-camera personalities as well as those in front of the camera.

(My experience hopes yes.)
