Fox Soccer Channel announced that it acquired exclusive rights to broadcast Italian Serie A games until 2010.
I don't want to make too bold of a statement, but this is basically the worst idea ever. The World Cup is awesome. The English Premier League is awesome. Major League Soccer is… a way to watch Americans play soccer. But Serie A is shit. Complete and utter shit. It's greasy people falling down for 90 minutes at a time. It's got more flops than the New York Jets first-round draft history. Fox Soccer would be better off televising AYSO games and marathons of Ladybugs and Kicking & Screaming. Or test patterns.
The only thing Italy's good for is hot women (like Francesca Ceci up there — NSFW pic of her here) and doric columns. Don't try to tell me pasta. They stole that from the Chinese.
