If you are a fan of Serie A and/or La Liga, this is your favorite day of the year.
The Spanish and Italian first divisions are back in action beginning today, and while the defending champions aren't playing today, there are still some fun matches to watch. Udinese takes on Genoa in the curtain-raiser in Italy, while Malaga takes on Valencia in Spain's opener.
If the Premier League is more your speed, Chelsea will look to record a third straight blowout today, while Tottenham tries to become the third straight team to destroy Wigan.
In Seattle, Freddie Ljungberg will return to Qwest Field with the Chicago Fire to face his former team in one of the weekend's top MLS matches.
