So last night I ended up at the main BBC page, and the lead story and picture was of the England women’s soccer team. Right now the Euro 2005 Women’s Championship is going on, with England v. Denmark today (go England!).
This is another great reason to love the Internet. I had no idea. I love soccer. I’ve played soccer most of my life. I can participate at least somewhat in the enthusiasm for the game through the content at the BBC website and others.
The only buzz kill is that ESPN is not televising the game, even though it’s on at noon Central time. What are they showing on the Deuce? 2004 (yes, 2004) World Series of Poker. Grrr. I would like a little a la carte disintermediation right about now …
But still. This is plenitude, and I love it.
