  1. not sure if watchable (legally), but horvath gets the start for molde against sevilla. doubt they’ll advance, but it’s something.

  2. SBI needs to do a running commentary for the FIFA elections tomorrow . I think there is going to be some entertaining things to come out of that!

    Yeah, I know it starts at 3am, but I’m sure there are a handful of overseas based readers that can give us a heads up on what’s going on.

    • You can watch it live on FS1. ESPN says Bob Ley will be giving updates on Sportscenter. I wouid imagine BBC World and CNN International will cover it too

    (setting my Outlook reminder for 3pm…check…
    Loading up Watch ESPN at work…check…
    getting my ticket for the hype train…well, i’ll just sneak on like a hobo)

    by the way, odd that both Fox and ESPN have rights to broadcast the game. cool with me!
