Today may be the one day all year that some of us allow the pigskin to take priority over the beautiful game.
But luckily there is still plenty of quality soccer on to hold us over while the talking heads blabber about every little angle of the Super Bowl.
Sure we complain about the quality of soccer analyst in this country, but the football announcers can be as thick as the 7-layer taco dip the WAGs are already up making.
And they don’t even have Warren Barton’s refined accent.
Hopefully they’re all too busy to seep into Fox’s broadcast of Manchester United v. Chelsea, the real jewel of today’s fixture list.
Elsewhere, matches might actually be played in Italy today, so Milan welcoming a wounded Napoli to the San Siro promises to be a good pregame for all those commercials.
