    Whoever it is, ESPN is going to shove the game down our throats whether 95% of America cares or not. I'm sure some producer will work hard to make sure the top 10 plays meets its quota from over there.

    Barca. And isn't Fox showing the final?

    I'm pulling for Barca. The game should be fun to watch, but I don't see how Man U's defense can withstand the ball control offense that Barca brings.

    Despite not having the rights...? The game will be shown on the local FOX affiliate.

    If ESPN is playing highlights, and it should since this is a major sporting event, then I doubt they will go overboard with it.

    The game is on FOX. And it will do just fine in the ratings because believe it or not there are a lot of soccer fans in the country who want to watch a game between the two best clubs in the world.

    And if Man U loses my son will be grumpy for a week. Myself, if Wolves and Blackpool can each win this weekend and avoid relegation I will be very happy.

    These are my two favorite clubs, though I'm not a huge fan of this year's Man U lineup.

    I think Barca will win, but I am mostly rooting for an entertaining, offensive game. I don't want to see Man U load up on defense the way Real Madrid does when it plays Barca.

    No one will watch. No one cares about soccer in this country. Fox wasted money on the rights. Both teams suck because they don't have any Americans.

    Way to go out on a limb, there.

    I will send you $5 if you tell us which teams you like, other than the USMNT.
