And I mean games, English Premiere League and NFL. I get it, soccer is actually football, and the NFL is head concussing military-strategizing mayhem. You got to love both.
Early, we start with struggling Liverpool, perhaps the most storied team in English and thus football history. They go up against Manchester United, the most trophied team in recent decades. Many say Liverpool is the most storied team, but you can't ignore the widespread success of the Red Devils and its leader Sir Alex Ferguson. I'd say that ManU will roll with ease but team leader and superstar Wayne Rooney appears not able to play and ManU has had a tendency this campaign to give up early goals to lesser teams, making for interesting games...though frustrating the way Manchester United keeps coming back.
Next up, Arsenal, another powerhouse goes up against Manchester City, which topped ManU last season for its first title in decades. They trail United by something like seven points and need a win/loss combo to close the gap. If Arsenal wins and United wins, they may get Sir Alex another trophy months early.
THEN, of course, come the NFL playoffs from 1 to 7:30 or 8 p.m. Enough has been said about that except I hope Houston puts up a game and that Seattle does the same.
It could certainly be an epic Sunday, and with limited games, no flipping and no Red Zone back and forth.
