Soccer: That's Just A Fad Too

We needed three seats. We got two. I need happy news.

Luckily, I got it: Major League Soccer just struck a three-year TV deal with NBC. According to the deal, the mothership will air two regular-season MLS games, two playoff games, and two national-team games per year, and Versus- soon to be renamed NBC Sports- will air 38 regular-season games, three playoff games and two nationa-team games.

Those two regular-season games on NBC may not look like much, but they are the first regular-season games to be on American network television. Prior to this, only playoffs and the title game got network play (on ABC).

But soccer will never get over in the US, right?
