Shout out to Jordan Bigsby for the guest post.
Watching soccer is exciting, but one of the things that makes it so fantastic is the flamboyance of color against the splash of green for the pitch.
The only thing better than watching world class soccer on television, since the global nature of the game makes it difficult to see all of the best matches in person, is seeing it in HD. I watch the matches on TV, which I bought after seeing the best deals on cable tv I have ever seen in my lifetime, so I can see many more games, and watching events such as the World Cup, I've gotten spoiled to the coverage available.
Since I follow many teams in many leagues, it's important to be able to watch a match being broadcast from outside the country. One of the reasons I follow so many teams is that players in soccer move between leagues in a way that no other sport can imagine. A top player in England's EPL may be playing in Spain a year later. Watching U.S. players who move from MLS to EPL can only be done if you also keep up with their team elsewhere.
Great soccer is played all over the world, and that reach is why I, as a fan, must keep up so I'm fully up to date on which teams will play well when the World Cup arrives!
