  1. Wow! My initially lame spring break spent at home just keeps getting better: first the Liverpool match is moved a week back and now I have 3 U23 matches to enjoy!

  2. I’ll certainly catch the Fox broadcast on Sunday…then I’ll be in Panama for the final two games of the first round…I’m hoping I can find a bar de deportes that will be showing the U-23’s…since we play Panama in the 2nd game watching in Panama should be a load of fun 🙂

  3. It makes my day for to reasons! 1)Was worried I would not be able to see the games. 2) there on FSC and not that crummy other network!!!

  4. Very happy that FSC will air the games. For those of you who don’t have a DVR, do yourself a favor and get one. It’s not an under statement to say it’ll change the way you watch TV. It’s a great invention for soccer fans who can’t always catch every game because life often gets in the way…

  5. Um, I meant it’s not good for me because I won’t get anything done because I will be watching it. It wasn’t a bad statement. It means I am happy to be able to watch it, just like everybody else. Sorry if you misunderstood.

    CACuzcatlan: My roommates and I accidentally ordered a generic DVR service when we moved into our house. Turns out it is only $5 extra for us a month. Look into it, you will never watch TV the same.

  6. There are hundreds of league games on TV. We only get limited chances to watch the best young American talent. I’m going to record every game so I don’t miss any of them. I can’t wait!

  7. This is awesome news! I can’t wait to see the young talent on display with Jozy and Adu working together again! This should be fun!
