Did anyone see the US-Cuba match last night? Nope, me either. Ya see, CONCACAF, in it’s wisdom decided to sell the rights to the Gold Cup (North America’s biggest competition) to a Spanish Language network. I have no idea if I get this Teleflora (something like that) Channel or not…and to be honest, I don’t care.
seriously, why should I bother? As an English speaking person living in the US, it’s difficult enough to follow the sport of soccer and in order to do so, you have to spend a lot of money. I just can’t be bother to put much more effort into following a competition that the promoters don’t really care to make that interesting…or at least that’s my (as a potential consumer) opinion.
Oh yeah, the game. It seems that a young US side managed to get three late goals and won the match 4-1. Boy, it sounds like 87 minutes of sleeping pills with a rude jolt at the end. But maybe I’m wrong…after all, I didn’t watch the match.
Then again, it doesn’t look like anyone bothered to show up for the match. Perhaps the Copa Oro (that’s Spanish) was advertised in Seattle in Spanish as well.
