I've decided to adopt a team in the English Premier League.
Okay, so the World Cup will be over soon and yet I want more. I got my first taste of professional soccer with the MISL back in the '80s (Cleveland Force all the way) and really got into it when I lived in Salzburg, Austria, when Salzburg made the Champions League. I've passively followed the MLS since its inception, but it's been difficult since Crew games don't seem to make it on TV/Radio in Cleveland and it's hard to keep track of when ABC or ESPN might be showing the random game. In any case, I'd really like to follow some top flight association football.
Since I'll never be able to follow Salzburg's games on TV or Radio, I figure my best bet is to pick a team in the EPL to follow. They get on TV at least once in a while, right? Plus, the EPL is supposed to be one of the best.
So here are my questions?
Which team would be a good one to adopt and why?
What is the best way to actually follow the games over here, other than Fox Soccer Net (I don't want to have to pay for the extra package on DirectTV)?
